Met Gala: The 30 best gowns of all time

Widely considered to be the biggest fashion event of the year, the annual Met Gala is the perfect opportunity for style-savvy stars to take some risks on the red carpet.

Last year, the couturier Charles James was honoured by celebrities slipping into a bevy of spectacular ball gowns.

As we anticipate this year’s chinoiserie-inspired ensembles, which we'll get to see in full swing in the ball's first-ever documentary, we look back at some of the most iconic Met Gala gowns of all time.
