Beyoncé at the Met Gala: See the Star’s Red Carpet Looks


What’s a Met Gala red carpet without Beyoncé? Since 2008, the star has been a staple on the famous museum steps on the first Monday in May, outdoing herself year after year. For her first appearance, the singer opted for a pale pink strapless gown by Armani Privé, which she paired with emerald green earrings and a low up-do. The following year, she upped the drama in a figure-hugging Roberto Cavalli dress that rendered it nearly impossible to walk (anything for that photo-opp). Then came the Givenchy years: in 2012, a black-sequined covered gown with a feathered purple train; in 2013, a strapless number with flames running up the sides and matching thigh-high boots; in 2014, a mysterious beaded number replete with a face-mask; in 2015, a barely-there sheer number with candy-colored gemstones; and 2016, the famous latex dress. There’s a reason the singer always arrives last: to literally shut down the carpet. Here, a look back at all of her Met Gala looks.
