Met Gala the CFDA is not. But that doesn't mean the annual fashion awards doesn't have plenty of jaw-dropping red carpet moments.

Take, for example, last year's event. We will never forget how perfect Kerry Washington looked in her lemon yellow Jason Wu gown. Not to mention, Sofia Vergara, who blew us away in an emerald Herve L. Leroux gown with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Before that, Gwyneth Paltrow and Blake Lively turned heads in their own dazzling Michael Kors creations.

And there have been tons more gorgeous gowns at the fête. Remember Rihanna's silk BCBG number in 2006? Or what about a pregnant Jessica Alba in DVF in 2011?

So, before we experience more truly special style memories this Monday, let's look back on the best so far.
