Although the postponement of the Met Gala has halted celebrations in the fashion world, it's important to take a look back at the outfits of yesteryear to bolster the excitement of looking ahead. Let's take a look at some Celebrity outfits that made waves during past events:


Kim Kardashian in an interview with Vogue spoke about her 2013 look, saying "I was very pregnant, very puffy and bloated and I was like, 'Oh God, of course the first time I go, I'm gonna be huge.' Kanye [West] was performing, so I wasn’t actually invited. I was just Kanye’s plus one and that was OK with me 'cause I never really dreamed I would be at the Met Ball. I know no one really probably wanted me there at the time...Ricardo [Tisci] was dressing me because he was dressing Kanye. We chose a really stretchy fabric because I would be growing and we wanted to make sure that alterations were easy and it was comfortable. We had a black version of this and then the floral version of this. I was like, 'I think I should just do the black version' and Riccardo was like, 'No, c'mon. We have to do the floral.' Riccardo said afterwards, 'What do you give a woman when she's pregnant? You send her flowers.' It was such a sweet message of how Ricardo described it. But I was so insecure. I could never really speak up at that point 'cause I so shy and just wanted to make everybody happy. He said Anna [Wintour] really wanted the floral. On the car ride there, I remember Kanye saying, 'You look so beautiful. I'm so happy for you.' He was so happy. I was crying the whole way home because I just couldn't believe it. There were all these memes about me and this couch. I think Robin Williams even tweeted it, said I looked like Mrs. Doubtfire. It was this whole thing. I was crying the whole way home because I just couldn’t believe it and now I love it. Now, it's like sick. I look back and I'm like, 'They had the vision.'"


"I did [get out of a car for that one]. I had to choreograph. I got a stretch limo, girls. I put the garment, the omelet, in the car first. Then I had to put it on in the car, but the train had to come out first, so that I wasn't dragging it out. It was all choreographed. I can't lift that thing by myself. I certainly can’t get out of the car and up stairs. Six people helped me carry it," said Rihanna on The Graham Norton Show about her 2015 dress.

"I had seen a few people hitting me online, saying negative things about it. But I enjoyed it because they were saying I looked like a dude from Mortal Kombat, and it was actually based on a character (from the video game series), called Jax," said Zayn to Dazed about his 2016 look. "He had metal arms, and the theme was technology, so I just took it from him... It's a bit easy to just dress up in a suit. I like to do things that are a bit outside of that."
