Every May, fashion fans gather around their laptops and televisions to watch one of the biggest events in the industry: the Met Gala. This year will be no different, but before the May 1 event, looking back at the craziest Met Gala outfits is the perfect way to get excited. From Zoe Kravtiz fairy-like lace ensemble in 2016 to Rihanna's insanely stunning cape from the 2015 gala, the fashion can run the gambit from mind-blowingly gorgeous drama to just plain mind-blowing for their insanity.
As for the upcoming Met Gala, there's no way to know what attendees will wear. The 2017 Rei Kawakubo Comme des Garçons themed gala is notable for many reasons, but perhaps most notable is the fact that Kawakubo is only the second living designer to have a Met Gala in their honor. The Comme des Garçons aesthetic is unlike any other design house's work, and Kawakubo's designs should be celebrated for their incredible uniqueness and depth.
While the Rei Kawakubo Comme des Garçons Met Gala is sure to be one that features the most innovative fashions yet, looking back at previous events' fashions will only help fashion fans get excited for that first Monday in May.
What are some of the craziest Met Gala looks from the past?
Here are the top 13, in my opinion.
1. Madonna: Met Gala 2016
