We're eagerly anticipating what the Queen of the Met Ball (Sorry SJP) will show up in tonight, but just before then, let's take you through all her past Met Gala outfits. It has been deemed as the most controversial theme of the Met Gala yet.
Years before Kendall Jenner's almost naked dress and Madonna's thong-bearing ensemble, Rihanna brought some skin to the Met Gala's 2014 "Charles James: Beyond Fashion" carpet in an ab-baring, two-piece ensemble by Stella McCartney. This year, the event falls on May 7, 2018 and the red carpet coverage on E! airs from 6:30 - 9 p.m. ET.
It was also one of the most simple looks she had gone for on the red carpet at the Met Gala.

Rihanna will co-chair her first Met Gala alongside Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace at the event on Monday, and we can't wait to see what regal look she puts together in honor of this year's theme: "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination". But even A-listers who get it totally right will have to work hard to outshine those who have gone before and left a Met Gala legacy.
The designers featured in the actual exhibit, which is on display until October 8, may give a hint of which designers you can expect to see on the red carpeted stairs Monday. Recently, the event's red carpet arrivals were allowed to air on national television and fashion fans are surely pleased. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the gala.
The rule also follows last year's Met Gala smoking incident, in which several celebrities, including Bella Hadid, Dakota Johnson, and Behati Prinsloo, used the museum's restroom to smoke cigarettes, angering the museum's owners and Wintour's team.
2018 MET GALA LOCATION: The Met Gala is held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute. The actual exhibit opens May 10 inside The Met Fifth Avenue and The Met Cloisters. Hollywood celebrities will walk the red carpet and attend a special dinner where the funds are raised for the Costume Institute. For example, actress Blake Lively told Vogue that over 600 hours have been spent working on her dress for this year's event.
