After Kate Middleton – now the Duchess of Cambridge – made a stunning entrance in a Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is paying its own tribute to McQueen, the late fashion icon who took his own life in February of last year.
Tonight’s Costume Institute Gala exhibit, called "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty," will explore the designer's "dark romanticism and his complicated attraction to female power, the grotesque and the historical," as Robin Givhan puts it in the Daily Beast.
The memory of his influence surges on, such as the entrance Sarah Jessica Parker famously made in one of his dresses at the Costume Institute’s "Anglomania" evening in 2006. Speaking of memorable dresses, we’ve rounded up a few looks from galas past that still stand out in our minds.
From SJP’s voluminous wonder and Katy Perry’s light show to Rihanna’s masculine chic, the red carpet at the Met never fails to provide an eye-catching outfit, good or bad. Let us know if we missed one of yours!

Has the one-shoulder not died yet? The red carpet at the Met Gala is supposed to forecast trends, not celebrate tired ones. See who was in the red @imeanwhat http://bit.ly/j3vze6
