Met Gala has a reputation of being eccentric and different each year. Brace yourself for it is back and how! After having cancelled last year due to the pandemic, this year comes with a vaccination and mask mandate. Now that we’re about to see what level of crazy unfolds in the 2021 Met Gala, how about going back in time and revisiting some of the craziest and outrageous Met Gala moments in the past!
Billy Porter being carried by shirtless men
Take it from Billy Porter to leave the audience dumbfounded. The actor’s entry in 2019 while being carried by six shirtless men was every bit jaw-dropping. The Pose star sported an embellished catsuit and a 24-karat gold headpiece, showing off a “Sun God” ensemble by the Blonds. It is safe to say he outshined everyone.
Jared Leto’s severed head for an accessory
Jewellery, suits and watches are old news. Why not make an entry with your severed head as an iconic accessory. Jared Leto, in 2019, clad in Gucci, carried a clone of his severed head inspired by Gucci’s fall 2018 runaway edition. Yes, it did turn many heads.
Katy Perry cruising in on an open-top vehicle
Katy Perry’s 2018 outfit at Met Gala was grand to say the least. Looks like she got the memo. Sticking to the theme “Heavenly bodies”, she descended upon the Met in a custom Versace outfit with crazy huge angel wings. The singer-songwriter had to be carried in an open-top vehicle to make an entry that went on to feature a meme-worthy ensemble.
Rihanna dancing on a table
In her golden Guo Pei fur-trimmed dress, Rihanna stole the show during the 2015 Met Gala when she headlined the event with a performance on “Bitch Better Have My Money”. Well, she opened her act on top of a guest’s dinner table.
Lady Gaga baring it all
The singer-actor made an entry in 2019 in a fuschia Brandon Maxwell cape gown with a 25-foot train. Interestingly, she took off layer after layer until she was left clad in nothing but lingerie, heels, and fishnets. Did you expect any less from Lady Gaga?
