There is quite possibly no bigger (or more extravagant) fashion event than the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala. Each year, the best and brightest of the industry come together to celebrate the museum's new exhibit, and celebrities, models, and designers bring their sartorial A-game to the red carpet.
This year's event has sadly been postponed due to coronavirus, so we're taking a look back at some of the most memorable Met Gala looks over the years. From Rihanna's Pope-esque pearl and jewel-encrusted robe with matching papal mitre, to Lady Gaga's iconic four red carpet costume changes (FOUR!), to Jared Leto carrying around his own custom Gucci head, you can see all the gorgeous (and outrageous) looks from parties past below.
