6 Met Gala Moments That You Just Need to Remember Again
By Sarah Flanigan
The Met Gala is a who's who of Hollywood’s hottest celebrities, top fashion designers, and Anna Wintour. If you’re there, it means you're doing something right and this year will certainly be no different!
We’ve somehow managed to come to terms with the fact that no one will be allowed to take selfies at the event this year because they’re sooo last season. So while we won’t have any major selfie moments to look forward to this year, we can still look back on Met Galas of years past and relive some of the most memorable moments … and how we picture Anna Wintour would have reacted to said moments.
In 2011, Queen Bey wore the most beautiful mermaid Emilio Pucci gown. Only problem: it was so tight she couldn’t walk up the stairs! Now for what we think Anna’s reaction would be:
Yoncé again because… she’s Beyoncé.
2014 was elevator-gate for Jay Z, Beyoncé and Solange Knowles. The three got into an elevator, a fight broke out between Solange and Jay Z and we all know what happened next… the video of the fight leaked. It still remains a mystery about what actually caused the fight. They have remained tight-lipped about it since it surfaced last May, except for Beyoncé adding this to her Flawless remix during a concert in October. Anna’s reaction:
Walking in giant gowns isn’t easy! So, when Nashville star Hayden Panettiere tripped while heading into the Gala in 2014, we all felt her pain. Being the bubbly blond and resilient actress that she is, the 25-year-old brushed it off and kept on smiling. We were all happy for her and here’s how we imagine Anna Wintour might have responded.
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively make a statement as the best looking couple in history.
There’s attractive couples and then there’s Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively. The pair is our dream couple and when they hit the famous steps in 2014, it was like it was their fairytale world and we were all just living in it. We imagine Anna would have agreed.
Is that Angelica from Rugrats doll Cynthia? No, that’s just Miley Cyrus.
While watching an episode of Rugrats can still be considered time well spent, it’s unclear whether it’s in anyone’s best interest to dress like one to the Met Gala. While Miley manages to look good in whatever ensemble she chooses, her 2013 Met look made it appear more like she was channeling the Rugrats Cynthia doll than the Punk Rock theme. Anna’s possible take:
Kim Kardashian attending for the first time.
Scoring an invite to the Met Gala is a big deal for anyone, no matter how famous or how rich you are. So when Kim Kardashian scored an invite in 2013, it was a big event. However, the reality star caught a lot of negative attention for her floral Givenchy gown designed by Riccardo Tisci, especially because at the time, she was pregnant with North West. All pregnant women are beautiful… Anna knows that.
No, we didn’t forget about Sarah Jessica Parker. Check out the video above to see her most unforgettable Met Gala moment!
