Met Gala has to be one of the most exciting event in the world. You get to see the creativity of a lot of designers when fashion meets art.
There’s nothing quite as magical as the Met Gala. It’s the one night where celebrities and socialites bring the glitz and the glamour to the red carpet. Being basic and subtle is not part of the dress code but due to on going it couldn’t hold this month.
If anything, the Met Ball is a place where stars spread their peacock wings and show off their lavish and larger-than-life designs. You’re guaranteed to see a parade of unbelievable pieces that are worthy of display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Here are some of the most memorable outfits ever worn to the Met Gala
Katy Perry 2019
Leave it to the singer to make dressing up as an inanimate object the most glamorous. Perry literally lit up the room when she showed up as a glimmering chandelier in Moschino by Jeremy Scott. The American Idol judge one-upped herself when she changed into a cheeseburger outfit inside the gala.
The music legend is arguably the OG trendsetter of the naked dress. Exhibit A: the glittery, see-through, feather-embellished dress by Bob Mackie that Cher rocked at the Met Gala in 1974, which inspired the dress Kim Kardashian West wore in 2015. The designs he created for Cher were on display at last year’s “Camp: Notes on Fashion” exhibit.
The Euphoria actress has proved herself to be a total style chameleon over the years, and she took 2018’s Catholic theme to new heights as she transformed into Joan of Arc in a Versace metallic armor gown and red bob wig — a stunning, high-fashion take on battle gear.
The undisputed Met Gala queen always slays, but the dramatic canary yellow embroidered furry robe that trailed across the steps was everything! At the “China: Through the Looking Glass”-themed soiree, RiRi owned the carpet in the Guo Pei haute couture number that went down in Met Gala history.
Lady Gaga, 2019
The multitalented star made a grand entrance with not one, but four looks, designed by her longtime friend and collaborator, Brandon Maxwell. The camp-themed moment had Gaga giving a mini performance on the pink carpet as a living doll, unveiling three dresses down to her last look of bra, underwear and fishnets.
Cardi B 2018
The rapper made her Met Gala debut (pregnant, no less!) in 2018, wearing an ornate Moschino gem-encrusted dress with voluminous train and matching headdress, complete with large gorgeous curls.
Although the pop star arrived at the very last minute, she proved it was worth the wait when she showed up in a sheer bedazzled Givenchy gown with a sassy ultra-high ponytail.
This list doesn’t even cover half of the other memorable outfits. What we have to say now is we miss the met gala and hope the pandemic ends soon enough.
