Dubbed the “Oscars of Fashion,” the Met Gala is the biggest night on the fashion calendar each year.
In honor of this year’s gala (scheduled for May 6), we’re taking a look back at the best fashion from 10 years ago. The 2009 theme was: “The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion.”
Always one to bring her A-game on the red carpet, Rihanna dazzled in a Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo jacket with exaggerated puff sleeves and skinny pants. For footwear, the “Love on the Brain” singer reached for black peep-toe pumps.
Another winning look came courtesy of Kate Moss, who co-hosted the event alongside Marc Jacobs, Anna Wintour and Justin Timberlake. Moss was outfitted in a slinky gold Jacobs-designed minidress and matching platform pumps.
For his part, Timberlake wore a classic black tuxedo. He was accompanied by now-wife Jessica Biel. The “7th Heaven” alum wore a red dress by Versace that had a high-low skirt and a strapless neckline. Her shoes were satin Christian Louboutin sandals.
Elsewhere, Blake Lively commanded attention in a plunging blue Versace gown with asymmetric sleeves. She matched her dress to her shoes, choosing flattering strappy sandals.
Meanwhile, Madonna turned heads in a teal Louis Vuitton minidress with sensual thigh-high boots.
Other attendees included Victoria Beckham, Kanye West and Anne Hathaway.
The 2019 Met Gala theme is “Camp: Notes on Fashion” — and celebrities are bound to come out clad in some whimsical looks. Gucci serves as a sponsor, so it stands to reason that many guests will wear the brand. Co-chairs are Harry Styles, Serena Williams and Lady Gaga.
