There's nothing quite like the Met Ball. With designs that are out-of-this-world and the industry's biggest stars dazzling in them, the larger-than-life event is a full-on fashion extravaganza.

And while many celebs show up and show out year after year, only a few ensembles stop us in our tracks and make us want to do a death drop. We're talking Rihanna's famous Comme des Garçons get-up, Beyoncé's barely-there, jewel-adorned dress and Sarah Jessica Parker's fiery, flame-like Philip Treacy headdress.

No design is too risqué or over-the-top. In fact, flashy, one-of-a-kind pieces are encouraged on the first Monday in May.

And while some celebs take the theme as a light suggestion, others go above and beyond. Such was the case when the "Diamonds" singer graced the red carpet in a full-on Pope ensemble, complete with a papal tiara, for the 2018 Met Gala. Last year's theme was "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination," and RiRi took us to church!

With that said, if fashion is the name of your game, keep scrolling to see the best Met Gala looks of all time. We'll be oohing and aahing right there with you.
