Most of us know the Met Gala to be one of the biggest nights in fashion. Models, entertainers, actors, and industry insiders bring their fashion A-game to the steps of the legendary Metropolitan Museum of Art. 

It is the most-awaited red carpet of the year, and the Met Gala has become something of a holiday for fashion fanatics. At the event, celebrities raise money for the museum's Costume Institute. Since the first Met Gala in the 1940s, much has changed, as attendance has become more exclusive and the event has become more elaborate.
