In exactly one week we’ll see our favorite celebs wearing their most striking outfits at the 2018 MET Gala. Every year, the biggest names in fashion and the most famous faces in the world gather at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City to raise funds for the MET’s Costume Institute. If you’re not familiar with the MET Gala, this is no average red carpet in terms of fashion. Classic couture gowns are swapped out for over-the-top, attention-grabbing ensembles. Some of the most jaw-dropping outfits of all time have been sported at the MET Gala. Before this year’s event, we’d like to take a trip down memory lane and share the Top 10 Best MET Gala looks of all time (yes, Rihanna made our list…twice.)
1. Rihanna, 2017
Rihanna has come to be known as the “Queen of the MET Gala” and for good reason! She has had some of the best MET Gala looks of all time! Last year she made our jaws drop with this insanely intricate ensemble that honored the 2017 theme of the event: Comme des Garçons.
2. Emma Watson, 2016
Emma Watson is always chic and classic, and her appearance at the 2016 MET Gala was no exception. This outfit was actually a pantsuit with a skirt over it. The black-and-white simplicity of it is gorgeous.
3. Gigi Hadid, 2017
Gigi Hadid turned heads last year in this beige asymmetrical look. We love the tulle. We love the sheer stocking. We love this entire ensemble.
4. Rihanna, 2015
The Queen of the MET Gala makes her second appearance on our list with this golden yellow outfit from the 2015 event. Where do we even begin with this one? Do you see that train? Do you see that fur trim? Do you see this?! This has gone down, indisputably, as one of the best MET Gala looks ever.
5. Blake Lively, 2016
Blake Lively looked like an ethereal princess in this floral embellished gown at the 2016 MET Gala fundraiser.
6. Priyanka Chopra, 2017
Priyanka Chopra nearly killed us with this incredible look at the 2017 MET Gala! It looked so good on her and showed that the MET Gala is the only place you can dress as a sexy Inspector Gadget.
7. Beyoncé, 2015
What would our list be without Queen Bey? She made jaws drop at the 2015 fundraiser in this semi-sheer gown. Have you ever seen anything more glamourous?
8. Zendaya, 2015
Zendaya is one of our fashion faves and she has had her fare share of great MET Gala looks. We especially loved this celestial inspired outfit she wore to the 2015 event.
9. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, 2016
You can always count on Kimye to bring something interesting to the red carpet and they definitely didn’t disappoint at the 2016 MET Gala. Kanye even matched his contacts to their outfits! Now that is some commitment to fashion.
10. Lupita Nyong’o, 2016
Lupita Nyong’o can do no wrong in our eyes. Her look at the 2016 MET Gala is one of the greatest of all time. We love the alien green color of her dress. We love the hairstyle. We love it all!
