Rihanna always makes a statement at the Met Gala

In previous years, the star has delivered some of our most memorable Met Gala fashion looks. In 2015, she stepped out in a Chinese canary yellow gown, and last year, Rihanna appeared for the first time with A$AP Rocky – sporting duvet-style coat dresses. Iconic if nothing else!

Gigi Hadid flew the flag for extreme fashion on this year's red carpet though, braving a huge puffer-style crimson coat with a latex outfit underneath.

Blake Lively served up another fashion highlight when she turned her gown from pink to blue with a team of people undoing her bustle and switching up her gloves. A truly magical moment that even husband Ryan Reynolds was blown away by, reacting with a shocked face as she stunned onlookers.
