The Met Gala is a grand celebration of style that unites creatives, visionaries, luminaries, and up-and-comers for an otherworldly event at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on the first Monday every May. It is a time-honored tradition regarded as fashion’s most important night of the year. Formerly called the Costume Institute Gala, it’s a highly anticipated exhibit of couture marked by grand themes and eccentric personal style.

While this remarkable event is postponed this year, we continue to celebrate the magical moments it has cultivated over the years with a look back to some of our favorite Carolina Herrera red carpet looks. The House of Carolina Herrera has supported The Costume Institute and Met Gala for decades. The beautifully intricate and flawlessly sophisticated looks Carolina Herrera created for herself continue to inspire, as do the many notables the House dresses each and every year. From Karlie Kloss in a statement jacket to Amber Heard in striking head-to-toe crimson, these custom Carolina Herrera looks are worth honoring, like the Met Gala itself, for decades to come.
