Met Gala Over the Years: 100 Best Looks

It is the first Monday in May, but it’s not the same. While the United States of America is still sleeping, waiting to wake up to the first Monday in May, possibly the driest day in the history of fashion, we’re already sulking over the fact that the coronavirus pandemic has brought the world to a standstill. Usually, members of the Indian Media (all my lovely friends, colleagues) stay awake on this day because all of us have to make sure that we get, and upload the pictures first. But today, we’ll all be sleeping sound sleeps, and somewhere, that does hurt.

Mid-March, the Metropolitan Museum of Art announced that the Met Gala will be postponed this year, but now we wonder if it will be held at all. So we brought together a list of 100 of our favourite looks at the Gala over the years. Please note, while we loved Billy Porter’s appearance last year, we have excluded him from our list, as we did last year from out Best Dressed list, and here’s why.

Each year, we hear each theme telling celebrities to serve us the drama and that’s exactly what is being done. And what we’re most proud of, is Priyanka Chopra Jonas makes stunning appearances year after year! So, here are the 100 looks we brought together for you:
