The First Monday in May ♠

It’s the first Monday in May so you know what that means… THE Met Gala is here. Known for its celebrity and fashion hosts, the event is always a must-see. Viewers from all over the world, tune in through social media where the stars post their potent looks with daring captions. This year’s theme is, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and Catholic Imagination,” and the Costume Institute Gala is being hosted by some of the most renowned names in fashion. Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Donatella Versace, and Amal Clooney are the Women of the Hour at this years most scrutinized fashion event.

When you mix fashion, politics, film, and business, what do you get? Humans dressed in the most impeccable costumes, suit/ties, and dresses, there is, under one roof.


So, let the games begin.

I will give you a dose of the most faultless, yet exquisite looks there are from the Met Gala over the years. These stars caught my naked eye, either once, or time after time. To give you the rundown, the themes are always so invasive every year, and that gives celebrities a chance to team up with designers and put their imaginations to the test.

Pay close attention to the designer heavy-hitters as I categorize them, by chance.

To end, I have to say that the Met Gala is by far my favorite red carpet of the year. I love the creativity and how many go far and beyond to show the fashion sense of themselves and their teams. Without a doubt, Rihanna is taking home the "The I.G.B. Blog's Met Gala" trophy, but I would have to give the second runner up trophy to Blake Lively. She looks gorgeous!
