Though the 2020 Met Gala was supposed to be only a few days away on Monday, May 5, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s affair is postponed until further notice. And we know we aren’t the only ones missing it. So to bring Us some Met Gala joy, we’re taking a look back at the wildest ensembles ever worn to the Super Bowl of fashion.
Outrageous looks have almost become an essential part of the big fashion event. With the imaginations of fashion’s most creative designers behind them, A-listers can and do show up in just anything from buttless chaps to pope attire. But that’s what makes it so fun!
2015’s “China: Through the Looking Glass” theme brought forth some seriously wild looks. Sarah Jessica Parker arrived in a Philip Treacy headpiece and a custom HM dress. Rihanna turned heads in a bright yellow Guo Pei Couture number that had a train over eight feet long. And you could hardly see Solange Knowles’ head peeking out of her structured Giles dress.
In 2017, the Met paid tribute to the avant-garde with the theme “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.” Kendall Jenner left very little to the imagination in a totally see-through Le Perla dress while Rihanna once again dominated the event in a Rei Kawakubo number.
Possibly the funkiest theme of all was last year’s “Camp: Notes on Fashion.” From Katy Perry‘s re-imagined chandelier number to Cardi B‘s mattress dress, it’s nearly impossible to narrow down the wild looks.
These are just a few of the wacky and cool outfits that have us dreamy ahead of the 2019 Met Gala. To see them all and more, keep scrolling to see some the Met Gala’s craziest looks over the past decade.
