The first Monday in May is usually one of the highlights of the fashion year — the Met Gala. But last year, with coronavirus restrictions in place, organisers “postponed” the event in line with official guidelines. However, 2020’s loss will be our gain, with not one but two Met Galas to look forward to.

Making up for a quiet first Monday in May in 2020 and 2021, Anna Wintour and her fashionable cohort decided to move the 2021 Met Ball to this evening, September 13, while plans remain in place for the typical May date in 2022.

This may be why stars like Zendaya, Dua Lipa and SJP have opted to skip the 2021 Met Gala while making plans to see us all on the steps of the Met in just a short few months.

But while we waited with bated breath for the first shot to fill our timeline (which starts imminently) under this year’s theme In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, we take a wander down memory steps for a look at some of the stand-out looks of the Met Gala through the years.

See our favourites in the gallery above.
