The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala is arguably the biggest fashion event of the year. It’s the one place where our favorite celebrities, models and designers come together to celebrate the museum’s exhibit in glamorous pieces fit for a showroom.
Because the ball is all about elevating your sartorial A-game and bringing a specific theme to life, I’m sitting with bated breath in anticipation of the first red carpet look. This year’s theme is “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.” So we’ll be sure to witness tons of creative garments that defy conventional dressing. Which also means there will be lots of hits and even more misses. I cannot wait.
But before the gala commences, let’s get in the mood for tonight’s festivities by taking a look back at the most memorable Met Gala looks over the years, from Sarah Jessica Parker to Rihanna.
