This year, singer Ariana Grande and rapper Cardi B graced the star-studded red carpet for the first time! Grande wore a stunning Vera Wang gown with a massive bow in her hair that had everyone talking. Music chart topper Cardi B is used to being the center of attention, and the Met Gala was no exception. She came out to play in a bejeweled Moschino by Jeremy Scott ensemble.
In 2008, both Taylor Swift and Beyoncé were invited to their first Met Gala. Swift shined in head-to-toe gold, and Queen Bey decided to have a pink moment in Armani Privé.
It’s been over a decade since Rihanna slayed on fashion’s biggest red carpet. She kept it low key in a white gown, but added that bad girl RiRi edge with fishnet gloves. This year, Rihanna ruled the theme — the influence of Catholicism on fashion. She shut down the carpet in a white beaded Margiela corset minidress under a full skirt, with a beaded pope-inspired hat to match — talk about wow-worthy!
