As Bravo fans know, Andy Cohen invites some of the biggest names in entertainment, sports, politics, and pop culture to be guests on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen every week. And then there are times he scores an invite to something major (spoiler alert: it's the Met Gala).

How to Watch

Tune in to WWHL on Bravo Sunday through Thursday and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Occasionally on that first Monday in May when the annual charity event takes place, the talk show host mingles with Hollywood A-listers outside the Bravo Clubhouse by attending the Met Gala. While most celebrities receive invites from designers whose fashions they usually wear to fashion’s biggest night, Andy's invitation comes from his good friend, actress Sarah Jessica Parker.

And we have to say, they slay every single time they attend the Met Gala together. We're reliving some of their most legendary BFF moments at the event with some epic throwback photos.

Andy has been lucky enough to snag an invite to the spectacle five times by accompanying SJP. The duo attended the Met Gala and wore coordinating (on-theme) looks in 2018, 2016, 2015, 2014, and 2011.

While appearing on WWHL in October 2016, Sarah addressed why she attended the Costume Institute Gala with Andy over her husband, Matthew Broderick. 

"First of all, he's always doing a play, right? But also, I think he feels like that's our thing, that's our special thing," she told Andy at the time. "He'll go see it as a civilian." 

What’s more, when Andy and Matthew came face-to-face in the Bravo Clubhouse in November 2016, viewers wanted to know if the actor was bothered by his wife going to the exclusive event without him. "No, 'cause you love it, right? And you're great friends," he said.

Andy Cohen and Sarah Jessica Parker’s “favorite” Met Gala Looks

While we’re stating that all of Andy and SJP’s Met Gala designs live in our heads rent-free, the Sex and the City actress declared her look from 2015 was No. 1 in her eyes. 

“I think my favorite is the mohawk. It’s the Philip Treacy headpiece for the punk show,” she told Andy on WWHL. “And that was a Giles Deacon dress.”

As for Andy’s top look of SJP’s, he noted that it was “the Oscar De La Renta,” referencing her gorgeous black-and-white gown from the 2014 Met Gala. The theme enlisted during that year was Charles James: Beyond Fashion.

Will Andy Cohen and Sarah Jessica Parker attend the Met Gala 2024?

The Met Gala maintains a strict policy of keeping their guest list confidential. Typically, the attendees are not announced until the day of the event, and sometimes not until moments before the red carpet commences. Each year, the Met Gala is held on the first Monday of May in NYC at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This year, the head-turning event takes place on May 6, 2024.

So, Bravoholics will have to keep a look out on May 6 to see if Andy and SJP will be at this year’s Met Gala. By the way, this year’s theme for the event is Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion, while the dress code is The Garden of Time. So if they do go, we can't wait to see what couture they wear.
