The Met Gala is a fundraising event that takes place each year in New York City to support the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Unlike the Oscars or even the Grammys, the Met Gala red carpet is known as the place to inspire genius in a celebrity’s red-carpet repertoire.

The annual Met Gala has a different costume theme each year, which helps celebrities decide what to wear on the night that is considered to be the pinnacle of fashion. The audience is often moved to admiration because many of the outfits are so stunning and impressive; however, there are times when weirder is wonderful. For instance, Katy Perry’s walking chandelier at the Notes on Camp event in 2019 was the topic of conversation for a considerable amount of time. Or, in 2021, Kim Petras made her debut on the Met Gala red carpet wearing a dress by Collina Strada that featured a 3D horse head bustier and a dramatic, panniered skirt. This was her first Met Gala appearance. Sometimes people’s odd looks aren’t just strange; they can even be offensive. However, this is all part of the excitement of the Met Gala.

So, to honor the brave fashion souls who have dedicated themselves to fashion, we have a list of 20 20 wildest celebrity Met Gala looks of all time. Please keep scrolling down to view them all and let us know which one captures your attention the most.

Rihanna attended the Met Gala in 2015 dressed in a brilliantly yellow haute couture gown. The theme of the evening was “China: Through the Viewing Glass.” Over the course of twenty months, the 55-pound ensemble was painstakingly handcrafted. And not only was that train all about the drama, but it can also be used as a cover for a king-size bed!

#3 Lady Gaga

Even though this outfit may appear more understated in comparison to Lady Gaga’s now-famous meat dress worn to the Met Gala, there are two things that need to be brought to your attention. She is attending a formal event without wearing pants, and the heels she is wearing are the highest we have ever seen anyone wear. Walking in those is an incredible act of physical prowess!

#4 Cardi B

In this 2019 ensemble designed by Thom Browne, Cardi B gives off the impression of being a glammed-up hybrid of a bug and a bird. Cardi has shown she’s not afraid to go above and beyond by wearing a gown that has sequins, feathers, ruffles, a corset, and a headpiece that resembles the most extravagant swim cap ever!

#5 Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah Jessica Parker has never been one to dress conservatively for the Met Gala. In 2018, her outfit featured a heavy gold dress and a major piece of architecture on her head, which was inspired by the year’s theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.”

#6 Lana Del Rey

Madonna’s outfit for the 2016 Met Gala, which was held under the theme “Fashion in the Age of Technology,” featured leather, lace, jewelry, and a significant amount of her bare butt. She used the phrase “political statement against ageism” when describing the look. She stated that the fact that people actually believe a woman is not allowed to express her sexuality and be adventurous after a certain age is proof that we still live in an ageist and sexist society. “The fact that people actually believe a woman is not allowed to express her sexuality and be adventurous after a certain age.”

#8 Naomi Campbell

Some people have commented that they think this outfit would be better suited for the red carpet at the MTV Video Awards rather than the Met Gala. But it becomes wild when we remember that the year’s theme was a celebration of Jacqueline Kennedy’s tenure in the White House.

#9 Frances McDormand

Frances McDormand appeared to be carrying the world’s most elegant gift bag while wearing this Valentino Couture ensemble. It had a big headpiece that made it very evident that people attending the Met Gala most definitely don’t have to drive themselves there.

#10 Iman

Iman can pull off wearing whatever the devil she desires and it will still look good on her. When a hat the size of a dining room table top, we are really curious about how she went to the event.

#11 Janelle Monáe

Working with stylist Alexandra Mandelkorn, Monáe was one of several to include a nod to Catholic iconography with a hat that formed a halo around her head and a silver head scarf. On the other hand, she disclosed to Vanity Fair on the red carpet that her choice of attire always serves a function, irrespective of the topic of the evening. As she stated. “I chose black and white as a way to honor my parents, who came from the working class.”

#12 Marc Jacobs

Although the practically nude, transparent clothing trend has been overdone on red carpet occasions for years, it is still a little strange to see a man go for it in the way that designer Marc Jacobs did in 2012. It’s hard to say which is more eye-catching: the bejeweled pilgrim shoes or the extremely simple white boxers that he wore underneath them.

#13 Solange Knowles

The most outrageous outfit that Solange Knowles wore to the Met Gala is one that should be remembered. She had a pretty unique shell-like appearance, but the 3D design of this dress likely meant that she couldn’t put her arms down all night.

#14 Rihanna

Who else but Rihanna could pull off a look that is essentially papal while still managing to be seductive? In this pearl- and jewel-encrusted gown by Maison Margiela, Rihanna really stole the show on the “Heavenly Bodies”-themed red carpet that year.

#15 Dan Levy

Dan Levy is known for consistently delivering memorable performances on the red carpet. This one, which was worn at the Met Gala in 2021 and had the theme “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” was designed to look like a deconstructed globe that had been combined with a comforter and bedazzled leggings. When there is a lot going on in one outfit, it can be difficult to fully comprehend all of the meaning behind it, despite the fact that we adore the message of welcoming LGBTQ love.

#16 Kim Petras

Socialite and businesswoman Julie Macklowe’s outfit look seems like Scarlett O’Hara wearing the drapes from the iconic Carol Burnett Show skit. We are not allowed to criticize anything that brings to mind Carol Burnett; however, we feel compelled to ask: Where are her arms when she is wearing this outfit?

#19 Kim Kardashian

Only Kim Kardashian could wear nothing but a wrap and still make it into a video compilation of people looking completely out of place in their attire. This one, like several of the other outfits on our list, is strange because it raises a lot of questions about how the logistics would work. What gave her the ability to see? Pee? Eat? How did she manage to get through the night without falling?
