1. Beyonce in Emilio Pucci, 2011
Beyonce was a dream girl in a black Emilio Pucci mermaid gown with gold embroidery at the 2011 ball. The dress featured a high neckline, a cleavage-baring cutout, and a curve-hugging silhouette that flared out in a burst of tulle at the hem. It had such a tight fit that in some pictures, Beyonce could be seen being assisted as she painstakingly negotiated the Met steps. But anything for the Met Gala, right?

The superstar topped off her look with a sleek center-parted chignon.
