The Met Gala, formerly the Costume Institute Gala, is one of the most popular see-or-be-seen events of the year. With all of the biggest names in attendance, everyone gets together to "ooh" and "ahh" at the creativity involved in each star's attire. However, the Met Gala hasn't always looked like it does today, and the fashion has been getting bigger and better throughout the years.
Sadly, the event which usually takes place on the first Monday of May was canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. To make up for lost time, the Costume Institute announced a two-part Met Gala for 2021 and 2022.
This year’s theme was "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion," having taken place on September 13. And, boy, did that result in many unconventional looks!
