The annual Met Gala has always proven to be an authentic representation of elegance and high fashion. The Met Gala is highly respected for its celebration of fashion as purely an art form. A night at the opera calls for elite attire and celebrities, public figures, and models alike, show up ready (and often covered in jewels) for the occasion. Appropriately referred to as, “fashion’s biggest night out,” attendees are expected to strut their unique and often daring designs on the Met’s red carpet. The stars hold nothing back as they don their fashion pieces, and often fear assuming the title of “worst dressed.” Bystanders hold their breath as the competition for “best dressed” unfolds on the red carpet. Public figures such as Kendall Jenner, Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, are featured below in their chosen styles.
