It’s finally that time of the year; the most important red carpet event – MET Gala – is going to take place tomorrow and with one of the greatest themes ever: “Punk: Chaos to Couture”. If everything goes as perfect as I hope, this year may go down in history as the best ever. There is so much to discuss on the topic; the origin of punk and how it effected (and is still effecting) fashion and how ironic that actually is etc. But for now, I thought that it would be nice to recapture the most remarkable dresses from the MET Gala history – most shocking, most beautiful and the most theme appropriate. Of course there are hundreds of gowns that I couldn’t remember or couldn’t put in the list because that would be going beyond the aim, but I tried my best.

Click through to reminiscence the 60 most remarkable dresses of MET Gala history; from 1999 to 2012, all together with designer names and themes.
