For fashion fanatics, the Costume Institute Benefit Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art — AKA the Met Gala — is the end all and be all of red carpets. Sure, the Oscars are lovely. And the Cannes Film Festival is fabulous. But it's at the Met where celebrities really let loose and have fun with what they're wearing.

Each year there is a theme, ranging from technology to punk and beyond, and designers get to dress their muses accordingly. This means there have been some seriously epic style moments at this event over the years.
