Their ensembles take inspiration from the theme, bringing us such viral moments as Rihanna's enormous yellow dress by Chinese couturier Guo Pei for the Chinese-themed event in 2015.

The Met Gala is an invite-only event, and brands and wealthy people buy all the tables and tickets. Anna Wintour then "matches" celebrities to sit with that brand. The cost for an individual ticket is $50,000, and an entire table costs $300,000.

What Happens Inside?

The event features a behind-the-scenes peek of the latest exhibit, followed by a dinner, and usually, a performance from a high-profile star. Last year, first lady Jill Biden made an appearance as the special speaker.

The Met Gala is a night to celebrate fashion and art while raising funds for a worthy cause. With the Karl Lagerfeld theme, this year's gala promises to be another memorable night in the fashion world.
