From savage beauty to the future of fashion, the Met Gala gives stars a chance to explore the frontiers of style every May. Whether it’s robo Zayn Malik flexing his metal arms or Kristen Stewart’s always unexpected styles, the event’s red carpet brings out its fair share of fashion hits and misses ever year.
The giant party usually brings its fair share of drama, as well. Former power couples like Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom and Bella Hadid and The Weeknd won’t be attending as dates this year if they go. The 2016 Gala gave us our first taste of Taylor Swift’s fling with Tom Hiddleston, too.
Check out some of the best and worst style choices stars have made over the years below.
