This year’s event may not be going ahead but it is still the first Monday in May after all.
Mention the first Monday in May to any fashion lover and they’ll immediately know what you’re talking about. Each year, the star-studded Met Gala takes place on this date, in partnership with The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and brings with it some of the most incredible fashion looks we’ll see in the year. From larger-than-life ballgowns to radical suits, there’s no limit on self-expression on style. However, today looks a little different as this year’s Met Gala – to be themed About Time: Fashion and Duration – has been postponed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So instead, we took a look back at the event’s archives to relive some of its most memorable moments. Ahead, see 62 of the best Met Gala looks of all time.
