iconic met gala looks

The Met Gala is nearing its next instalment at an alarming speed, and while we prepare for fashion's night of nights after last year's off-schedule event on September 13 in New York City, the Met Gala is returning again for its next gala on the first Monday of May with the theme Gilded Glamour.In the spirit of this, we're thinking about all the past moments from the historic red carpet. From surprising moments, to fashion that reaches icon status, to avant-garde beauty looks, the Met Gala is never boring. From Zoe Kravitz in the naked dress to Cher wearing the first of many sheer, feathery sequinned gowns to Rihanna's big-bird-esque robust yellow fur trimmed robe. Below, we round up some of the most iconic Met Gala looks throughout history, from the Calvin Klein slips of the 90s supers to Harry Styles' sheer pussy bow.
