Fashion's most celebrated night of the year, the Met Gala, is quickly approaching, and we're positively buzzing with excitement.

On this ostentatious night of style, celebs really step it up wearing mesmerizing ballgowns, dazzling accessories and stunning shoes to honor the museum's highly anticipated exhibition and of course revel in the spotlight!

While we eagerly await the red carpet this coming Monday, we took a moment to reflect on the most unforgettable fashion looks of years past.

From Beyoncé's curve-hugging couture designs to the sparkly over-the-top princess ballgowns worn on Jennifer Lopez and Anne Hathaway, the Met Gala looks are some of our favorites in celebrity style history. 

Who could forget Sarah Jessica Parker's elaborate salute to Alexander McQueen in a signature plaid number, or Karolina Kurkova's shimmery ensemble completely with matching turban by Rachel Zoe?
