Met Gala: the most beautiful dresses of the last editions of the Ball

Waiting for the 2018 edition that will take place on May 7, we discover the most beautiful looks from 2004 to today.

Everything is ready or almost ready for the edition 2018 of the Met Ball: the evening of May 7in fact, the most awaited appointment by the fashion system will take place in New York, the gala inaugural which, annually, the Metropolitan Museum dedicates to a special exhibition dedicated to the world of fashion.

This year's theme will be "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and Catholic Imagination ", a valuable collection of beyond 150 creations, between ecclesiastical clothes borrowed from the Vatican and clothes supplied by important fashion designers such as Chanel, Balenciaga and Versace, to underline the close bond that has always united fashion and religious iconography.

And, as special hosts of the event this year we will have not one but three "godmothers": Donatella Versace, Rihanna And Amal Clooney, who, for the occasion, will take the stage of the Met Gala 2018 as presenters. most memorable dresses and outfits of previous editions.

Some of the looks you see have remained etched in our memory: like the outfit sported by Sarah Jessica Parker in 2006, the year in which she showed up with Alexander McQueen, of whom she wore a model in tulle with draped check fabric, typical of the Scottish kilts so loved by the designer.

Or the dress inspired by Marie Antoinette and the eighteenth century designed by John Galliano and worn in 2004 by Amber Valletta on the occasion of the exhibition "The Dangerous Liason": the model chose to combine it with a wig to be more philologically in line with the theme.

And again in 2010 the "luminous" dress by Katy Perry and that, decidedly "cumbersome" of Rihanna worn at the Met Ball in 2014 or the "petal" one (pass the term) that the singer wore for the 2018 edition dedicated to Rei Kawakubo, mind of the brand Comme des Garçon.
