The South African singer, known for her viral hit “Water” which made waves on Billboard charts, brought a unique touch of classical elegance to her debut at the 2024 Met Gala on Monday night. Stepping into the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the first time, she certainly caught the eye of fashion police. When asked if she’d be comfortable sitting for dinner inside the museum in her striking hourglass outfit, she noted it’s “fashion over function.”

“Who knows? They’ll figure it out,” the singer said before adding with a chuckle, “Who cares guys? I look cute.”

Tyla honours ‘the sands of time’

Met Gala rookie Tyla (you know, the one with the catchy tune Been Thinking) totally rocked this year’s “Garden of Time” theme. She showed up in a stand-out or should we say, Sand Out Balmain gown that hugged every curve. With the torch of realness, the look and her handbag screamed “Time marches on.”

The songstress also rocked a whole new hairstyle. Gone were the bouncy curls, replaced by a sleek, layered bob that oozed confidence. Tyla spilled the tea to reporters, saying the whole outfit was inspired by the “sands of time,” which explains that cool hourglass purse she was rocking.

“I’m wearing sand, basically, the sands of time. We really wanted something out of the box for this year. I walked with Balmain, it’s my first time at the Met,” she spoke to La La Anthony, the host of the Met Gala 2024 red carpet. “It feels amazing, I’m so excited to go inside and see all the pictures when I go home…. I just love the outfit and how everything turned out.”
