Remember the masked Bennifer (J Lo and Ben Affleck) kiss?

The Met Gala has staged some memorable pop culture moments over the years. While many celebrities have climbed the museum’s famous carpeted staircase in safe fashion choices, others embrace the theatrics of the event and use it as the one night of the year when you can create total commotion with an outfit.

On the first Monday of May, Times Square appears distinctly calm compared the camaraderie happening inside and outside the The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The performance element of the red carpet has got progressively wilder in recent years and of course the world watches online waiting for a meme-worthy moment or viral talking-point.

From bathroom mirror selfies to extravagant trains (remember Rihanna’s omelette dress?); costume changes and mask kisses (Bennifer!), previous events have never been lacking in drama. And as we wait to see what this year’s installment has in store, and the looks that the stars will wear—adhering to the theme, or not—keep reading to revisit some of the best Met Gala moments, from the 1970s to now.
