Meta Gala 2018 red carpet arrivals

Meta Gala 2018 red carpet arrivals

This year's Met Gala is due to take place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, with the exhibit housed in Fashion mogul Anna Wintour's Costume Centre, the medieval rooms in the Met on Fifth Avenue and the Cloisters. See these moments and more in our attached gallery of celebs getting ready for the 2018 Met Gala! But with this year's theme being 'Fashion and the Catholic Imagination', the opportunities for red carpet interpretations that are creative, thought-provoking and, let's face it, controversial, are limitless.

The Like A Virgin hit-maker snacked on a packet of crisps as she gave fans a sneak peek into her red carpet-worthy look - because every girl needs to eat right?

Some guests are considered staples during each year's Met Gala. Rihanna, who had been in the music industry for a few years at this time made her first appearance at the Met Gala.

"This is the most important thing I've ever done", she said.

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.

Yu, who attends about eight big gown events a year and who is amassing her own distinctive collection of couture pieces and ready-to-wear (including Valentino, Dior, Ralph & Russo, Huishan Zhang and Mary Katrantzou) is well versed in the fantasy of dressing up. "I put so much work into this and I'm so excited to see her in it".

Two years earlier was when Rihanna really cemented herself as a Met Gala star, channeling the event's theme of "China: Through the Looking Glass" in a breathtaking, embroidered canary-yellow gown by Chinese couturier Guo Pei.

For 2012's "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations" theme, Rihanna slithered onto the carpet in a sexy, sultry Tom Ford crocodile-embossed leather dress.
