It is a time where pretty much anything goes on the red carpet and with a theme of Camp: Notes on Fashion, the A-list guests certainly didn't disappoint with their outlandish outfits.
Check out the most outrageous ones from the Met Gala 2019 below…
The rapper brought the red carpet to a halt with possibly the most outrageous, and ambitious outfit of the Met Gala.
Whatever Cardi can do, Nicki Minaj can do better, or at least as outlandish.
Eight months after she brawled with Cardi B, Minaj went into battle with her nemesis once again, with big ballgowns the weapon of choice.
Nicki went for a Prabal Gurung blush dress that had hand-embroidered chandelier crystals. Trains were the name of the day and Nicki boasted one made of silk taffeta.
After the battle of the rappers came award winning actress Hailee, who urged photographers to stop snapping.
Dressed in a multi-coloured ribbed gown, Hailee had 'No Photos Please' emblazoned across the front in a tongue-in-cheek 'look at me' statement.
As co-chairwoman of this year's Met Gala, it was singer Lady Gaga's prerogative to make a statement on the red carpet.
This she did by donning four outfits as she stripped down to her underwear in the most memorable entrance of the event.
When Katy Perry said she wanted to light up the red carpet, she probably didn't mean that she wanted to dress as a chandelier.
