The theme for the Met Gala 2024 is Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion with the dress code The Garden of Time, based on J.G. Ballards short story. The Metropolitan Museum of Art stated the theme reflects interactive fashion, utilizing the five senses. The reference to Sleeping Beauty is supposed to reflect how the clothes are so fragile they cannot be worn again. The dress code is a reference to nature, which many celebrities, such as co-host Zendaya, captured in their looks. While the event brought forth many unique looks, it is ironic how the theme is one-time use while the dress code is nature, a topic related with sustainability, a juxtaposition to the nature of the Met Gala.

Cartoon: A royal mystery

This year, the final candidates for the presidential election are 81-year-old Joe Biden and 77-year-old Donald Trump. One of the main cases against the election of Biden is his mental ability due to his old age, which in turn caused his supporters to point out Trumps old age as well. Biden had an excellent response to this concern during an interview with Robert Hur. He delivered a stirring speech of his vice presidency, proving his memory was intact and twisting his elderliness into wisdom. Some people point out that Bidens age is a representation of the U.S. population as a whole, which is getting older every year. While age may be a factor to consider how someone might perform, it shouldnt be the reason.

Recently, there has been a decline in demand for plant-based meat. In response, start-up companies, such as Choppy, Hoxton Farms, and Mission Barns, are experimenting with putting real animal fat into plant-based meat. While it is appalling to vegetarians and vegans, the goal for these companies is to appeal to the larger, currently meat-eating audience. This is the transition needed for a sustainable and ethical future.
