Wintour, Clooneys opens a heavenly Met Gala in New York

MET Gala Rihanna Poll

The Met Gala takes place on Monday 7 May at the Metroplitan Museum of Art in NY.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual Costume Institute fundraiser, the Met Gala, is tonight.

While Beyonce and her husband, JAY-Z, have been praised as the queen and king of the Met Gala, we think there's a case to be made for the rapper's protege, Rihanna. To follow the great steps she took on the Met Gala red carpet, we take a look at some of her best shoe moments. The 2008 theme was "Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy", which is a touch sophomoric, but hey, it was simpler times.

For 2017's "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons" event, supermodel Coco Rocha was left off the guest list for the first time in years, and said she didn't really know the reason why she'd been excluded from the event.

Two years later after her Met Gala debut, she turned up for the 2009 Met Gala with the "The Model As Muse: Embodying Fashion". Yet, either incarnation would be entirely apt for the unique dress code.

Katy Perry during her Met Gala appearances. It was evidently noticeable that her looks had changed since she had last attended. Photography from inside the Met Gala will be only available for license exclusively through Getty Images. Donning a black, beaded lace gown by Stella McCartney, Rihanna shimmered on the carpet and proved her sexy style was here to stay. The theme for that year was "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations". The 70th Annual Costume Institute Gala (more popularly known as the Met Gala) will host the biggest movie actors, pop stars, social media sensations and sports personalities on Monday in NY and we know the stars are gearing up for it.

Katy Perry is still the reigning queen of the most shocking Met Gala outfits.

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. Oh, and just for dramatic effect, she arrived fashionably late to steal the show.
