Take a trip down memory lane!

The first Monday of May is fast approaching, which means we'll soon be witnessing the most fashionable gala of the year: the Met Gala. This year's theme, Camp, hints at everything kitschy and intentionally exaggerated. And while we're waiting to see what everyone will be wearing and how they will interpret the theme, how about reminiscing the most memorable Met Gala moments over the years? Scroll down and walk down memory lane with us!


Princess Diana's iconic blue slip dress

This is perhaps one of the coolest '90s looks of the late Princess Diana. Setting the bar high for Met Gala appearances, she wore a blue Dior slip dress with her signature pearl necklace (same jewelry she paired with her famous revenge dress).


Katy Perry's glowing dress

Katy Perry literally glowed on the Met Gala 2010 red carpet, all thanks to London-based designers Francesca Rosella and Ryan Genz of Cute Circuit.



Hayden Panettiere's scene-stealing stumble

Hayden took a tumble in her pastel-colored frock but quickly recovered and quipped, "Hallelujah! I made it up the stairs!"


Beyoncé's late entrance

Beyoncé may have been fashionably late at the 2015 Met Gala, but the Queen Bey didn't disappoint us with her ensemble as she graced the red carpet clad in a very sheer gown with strategically placed embellishments, which she completed with a high ponytail.

The no-selfie rule

In 2015, Met Gala imposed a no-selfie rule. And while there was no clear explanation as to why this rule was enforced, there was simply no stopping celebrities from documenting their Met Gala looks. Not even Anna Wintour can keep Kylie Jenner from holding an "annual bathroom selfie" party!

Also filed under meme-worthy looks is SJP wearing a red headdress that resembled flames.


Madonna's sheer dress

Met Gala's 2016 theme, Manus X Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, gave us Madonna clad in a very sheer boob- and butt-baring bondage dress. It's a sight people won't forget in a long time.



Jaden Smith's dreadlocks

Jaden Smith's choice of date definitely made headlines. The young actor reportedly brought his dreadlocks to the Met Gala 2017 because he couldn't bring his sister as his date.

Rihanna in Comme des Garçon

2017's Met Gala honored Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo, who became famous for her avant-garde designs for Comme des Garçons. While many opted to play it safe, Rihanna took the theme up a notch and certainly dressed to impress in honor of the talented designer.


Met Gala 2018's Heavenly Bodies

Undoubtedly Met Gala's most controversial theme yet, 2018's Heavenly Bodies had no shoratge of glam, creativity, and high fashion on the red carpet.
