The annual MET Gala is held to raise funds for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. Every year, celebs walk the red carpet in wild and statement-making outfits. While the goal is to “go crazy,” some stars have sported truly shocking and head-turning ensembles at the event. In honor of the 2018 MET Gala, which takes place on May 7th, we’ve taken a trip down memory lane and compiled ten of the wildest outfits in MET Gala history. Check them out below:
1. Kim Kardashian, 2013
Absolutely everyone was talking about Kim Kardashian’s 2013 MET Gala dress and it wasn’t anything nice. We couldn’t help but think that the pattern and material looked like a couch! Even if the attention wasn’t good, at least she got people talking!
2. Madonna, 2016
While she’s always been known to push the envelope, the back of Madonna’s 2016 MET Gala outfit revealed just too much. Madonna has a tendency to miss the mark when it comes to MET Gala ensembles. This isn’t the last time you’ll be seeing her on this list…
3. Beyoncé, 2016
We’d like to think that Queen Bey can do no wrong….but we’d be wrong. Her head-to-toe latex gown from the 2016 MET Gala forced everyone to have the same thought: Why is Beyoncé wearing a giant condom?
4. Katy Perry, 2017
While Katy Perry did follow the theme of the 2017 MET Gala (Comme de Garcon), this outfit looked totally nuts on the red carpet. We couldn’t even tell it was Katy underneath it!
5. Sarah Jessica Parker, 2015
Long before Rihanna earned the title, Sarah Jessica Parker was once considered the Queen of the MET Gala. She always nailed the perfect ensemble. One particularly memorable outfit was her 2015 choice, which featured this fiery headpiece.
6. Zendaya, 2017
Zendaya is always gorgeous and flawless, but we’re still not sure about the giant parrots on her 2017 MET Gala gown.
7. Madonna, 2013
We promised you hadn’t seen the last of her! Madonna lands on our list again with this complete mess she wore to the 2013 MET Gala. You’re supposed to go over-the-top for the event, but plaid plus fishnet plus pink heels is borderline offensive.
8. Rihanna, 2017
If you took a look at our recent list of the Top 10 Best MET Gala Outfits, then you’re probably feeling some deja vu looking at this Rihanna ensemble. We decided to include it on both lists because public opinion was so torn after RihRih wore this outfit! Many people loved it because it fit the Comme de Garcon theme, but many others hated it because, well, look at it. We’re still not sure how to feel.
9. Selena Gomez, 2017
At first glance, Selena Gomez’s 2017 Coach gown is gorgeous, pretty, and ethereal. Then you remember: This is the MET Gala! This outfit is way too simple, way too elegant, and way too boring!
10. Chrissy Teigen, 2017
We’re obsessed with everything Chrissy Teigen does. She’s gorgeous. She’s hilarious. But this dress? It’s like the puffy shirt from Seinfeld was run through a paper shredder.
