Affectionately known as “fashion’s biggest night out”, the annual Met Gala is a pinnacle event that sees the biggest celebs dressed to the nines in their most avant-garde and over-the-top creations. It’s no wonder that the gala, an annual fundraising event for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City, is also commonly referred to as the Oscars of the fashion world.
This year’s gig will be particularly exciting as it will be co-hosted by Lady Gaga and Harry Styles of One Direction fame, but more importantly, its theme “Camp: Notes on Fashion”, promises wild, headline-grabbing, over-the-top red carpet moments.
But while we wait for the first Monday of May to arrive, let’s take a look back at some of the most outrageous get-ups from celebrities such as Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Beyoncé that shut down the red carpet.
