RIHANNA, Beyonce, JLo and more have served some of the most iconic looks from past Met Gala’s as fashion’s biggest night is canceled this year amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Every Spring, A-listers fight to get an invite to Vogue’s prestigious evening at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and designers battle it out to dress them.
Rihanna, 32, has stunned with jaw-dropping looks over the years and became one of the most buzzed-about attendees in 2015’s theme “China: Through the Looking Glass.”
The We Found Love singer wore an imperial yellow dress with a fur-trimmed cape by Chinese designer Guo Pei.
“I’m so in love with this dress, but the train is insane! I can’t really walk in it without any help – but it’s so worth it,” she said on the red carpet in 2015.
That same year, Beyonce, 38, arrived late and nearly missed the red carpet before she showed up with 50-year-old husband Jay-Z.
The Formation songstress wore an almost completely sheer Givenchy gown that showed off her figure and covered her private bits with embellishments.
Jennifer Lopez, 50, dazzled in a sparkling Versace plunging dress that showed off some skin with a thigh-high slit.
JLo's head was also draped with diamonds in a crystal headpiece as fiancé Alex Rodriguez, 44, showed up as her arm candy.
The Hustlers actress reportedly wore $8.8 million worth of Harry Winston jewelry – including the "Purple Dragon Necklace" which weighs over 129 carats.
Lady Gaga, 34, was pretty in pink at the 2019 art fundraiser when she co-hosted the event with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
The Born This Way singer stood out in her massive hot pink Brandon Maxwell gown that was complete with a cascading train and huge matching head bow.
Gaga's red carpet appearance included FOUR outfit changes – stripping off layers of clothing each time – before ultimately ending up in lingerie.
In 2013's punk-themed ball, Miley Cyrus, 27, appeared nearly nude in a long-sleeve, black netted gown by Marc Jacobs along with a spiked buzz cut.
Katy Perry, 35, lit up the red carpet at last year's Camp-themed bash as a human chandelier.
The Firework singer collaborated with Moschino designer Jeremy Scott on her outfit for the big night.
The eccentric designer also created a custom hamburger costume complete with jewel-encrusted sneakers and a clutch that resembled the food item for the after-party.
Zendaya, 23, was magical in her Cinderella-inspired Tommy Hilfiger ball gown that lit up with a few waves of the wand from her fairy godmother of the night, actor Billy Porter.
Ezra Miller, 27, made attendees do a double-take when he covered his head with a mask of his own face – only to reveal five optical-illusion eyeballs painted around his real eyes.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower actor also wore a Burberry suit, rhinestone corset and matching bedazzled shoes.
Jared Leto, 48, carried his own Gucci-made head during 2019's fashion event while wearing a red high-neck gown complete with a jewel-encrusted body chain.
During her first-ever Met Ball in 2018, rapper Cardi B, 27, matched with designer Jeremy Scott for a religious ensemble fit for the year's theme "Catholic Imagination."
Kylie Jenner, 22, and sister Kendall, 24, wore custom-made lavender and orange feathered Versace gowns made to accent each other.
The Kylie Cosmetics billionaire admitted to looking at sketches for over "four months" before deciding on her now-iconic look.
She told Vogue: "They showed me those first sketches and it looked a little more like cowgirl vibes, like it was green, it had a big cowgirl hat.
"And then they showed me another version, which was more colorful. I was thinking of doing more like a monochromatic look, so I didn't change it much. I loved what it looked like. I was very happy with the sketches."
