Here they are, kittens! All the choices that will make you shout “THESE?!?” at your screen in outrage. We realize this list is composed entirely of looks from the most recent years of the Met Gala, but there’s a good reason for that. Roughly starting in 2015 or so, the idea behind the night shifted from just being an elegant Manhattan gala in the mode of so many others, into being an eye-popping extravaganza of celebrities wearing parade floats. And while we can certainly understand those who might sniff that elegance and restraint have been lost, we can’t help but be the red carpet-loving bitches we’ve always been. We love the spectacle of it all.
What’s great about this look is how much drama it serves with so little fuss. A reminder that truly head-turning fashion doesn’t need to be elaborate.
We love this not just because it’s great whenever Cara leans into her robot-girl looks, but also because it’s a pantsuit that packs as much punch as any over-the-top gown, helped tremendously by that fabulous head styling.
You just knew we were going to include this one. Truly an all-timer of a look.
A look that’s very near and dear to our queer hearts. It’s not subtle in any way, but somehow, because of her bearing and the simplicity of the style, it feels quietly confident.
We know damn well that the majority of y’all will disagree but girlfriend was serving the MOST high fashion of any Met Gala red carpet. We love that she never rests on pretty – and sometimes, she doesn’t even shoot for it.
This was the dress that made us realize she’s at her best when she’s at her witchiest.
Fine, call it goofy if you must. But it’s different, it stuck to the theme, and it was uniquely beautiful. We never forgot this look.
Sometimes, someone manages a look that really gets to the heart of the idea of blending high fashion and costume design.
Another look that celebrates the idea of costume over fashion, worn by the person best suited to interpret this kind of campy stagewear.
The ultimate. A total show-stopper that launched a thousand scrambled-egg memes but remains one of the most memorable Met Gala looks of all time.
