What would the Met Gala be without an appearance from the one and only Rihanna?

As the years go on, some may wonder what the first Monday in May was even like before the pop superstar stepped onto the scene. As the first Monday in May approaches for 2019, the fashion world and fans alike are waiting with bated breath to see just what spectacular ensemble RiRi has up her couture sleeve this time around.  

After all, she's set quite the precedent for herself in recent years of not only commanding the red carpet, but also upping the ante of what is possible when it comes to adhering to the theme. 

This year, it's "Camp: Notes on Fashion" with Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele serving as a co-chair for the ball. 

As such, we suspect the songstress will once again push the boundaries, this time perhaps with something special from the Italian label. 

Whichever brand she chooses, however, we can always count on Rihanna's Met Gala fashion to shine bright like a diamond. 

As the wait for this year's outfit comes to a close, revisit all of her past Met Gala styles in E!'s gallery below. We bet you'll find love with at least one—if not all—of the looks.
