Lil Nas X and Julez Smith Jr. stun in LUAR at the 2024 Met Gala

LUAR is pleased to have dressed the following VIP guest at the 2024 Met Gala. All looks were custom-designed by creative director Raul Lopez and were handmade by skilled seamstresses in New York City’s Garment District.

Lil Nas X wears a three-piece suit featuring an overcoat, tank top and wide-leg pants with a dramatic peplum sash. The look incorporates more than 2,000 buttons and 50,000 Swarovski crystals.

Julez Smith Jr. wears a beaded blazer and black wool wrap pants.

LUAR creative director Raul Lopez wears a tan wool suit with button panels and train.


LUAR is the reversed namesake label of Brooklyn, NY-based designer Raul Lopez. LUAR has been hailed as one of New York’s most exciting brands and its timely point-of-view has drawn international acclaim. In 2022, LUAR won the CFDA Award for American Accessories Designer of the Year. The following year, LUAR was a finalist for the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers. Lopez launched LUAR in 2011 with a compulsion to create designs based on the low and middle-income communities he grew up among in New York — a perspective that had long been missing from American fashion. The designer’s entrenchment in downtown New York City scenes inspired him to marry visual hallmarks of his Dominican heritage with the fluidity of underground nightlife. The brand considers affordability and accessibility when designing ready-to-wear, accessories and lifestyle goods for all gender identities. LUAR has been worn and supported by the likes of Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Dua Lipa, Solange Knowles, Bella Hadid, Kylie Jenner, Lourdes Leon,
