Newly appointed brand ambassador, Burna Boy stars in the latest G-Star Raw campaign as his first act of business. The Spring/Summer 2024 campaign includes two limited-edition, premium Japanese denim looks worn by Burna Boy in the campaign. He wears an ultra-long denim military-style coat and a hooded sleeveless statement jacket paired with matching loose jeans, complete with new leather Benson Lea Boots for both looks.

For the campaign, Burna Boy is featured in a video shot on location in London, spearheaded by multi-award-winning director Dave Meyers. The video is shot in black-and-white to pay homage to the G-Star brand heritage. The video features Burna Boy’s new song “On Form,” with his dance crew performing his singular “stomp” moves throughout the city of London, getting everyone to join in with him.

2. Bad Bunny, Jennifer Lopez, and Chris Hemsworth to host the 2024 Met Gala

On Thursday, Vogue officially confirmed details for the Met Gala 2024 theme and co-chairs attached to the upcoming stylish evening. The official dress code for the 2024 Met Gala is “The Garden of Time,” which is inspired by J.G. Ballard’s 1962 short story of the same moniker that “can be interpreted in a myriad of ways,” per the outlet.

Given the name, the heavily dissected looks will likely cite floral and environmental mood boards. This year’s hosts include Zendaya, Jennifer Lopez, Bad Bunny, Chris Hemsworth, and Anna Wintour. The 2024 Met Gala, which will take place on Monday, May 6, will cut the ribbon on Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion. This showcase will include roughly 250 garments from the Costume Institute’s permanent collection, many of which have not ever been viewed publicly.
