The 2018 Met Gala is just around the corner. While the event is renowned for its gorgeous fashion and A-list celebrities, it's also been known to attract its fair share of scandal.

Who could forget when Beyoncé watched her sister Solange Knowles go after Jay-Z in that famous elevator ride? There was also that time Bella Hadid, Marc Jacobs, Dakota Johnson and more stars smoked in the bathroom, reportedly earning the museum a slap on the wrist from the New York City Department of Health.

In honor of Monday's big event, here's a look back at eight of the biggest Met Gala scandals of all time.
