Here's Why Beyoncé Is The True Queen Of The Met Gala


The Met Gala, fashion's biggest night, brings out nearly every celebrity on the planet.

A-list stars and wannabes alike all clamor for an invite by Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour to the VIP of VIP events.

Sure, the event is actually a fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York, but come on, you know what we are all here to see: BEYONCÉ.

That's right, we are all here, especially in 2016, to see if Queen Bey shows up with husband Jay Z right after publicly outing him as a straight-up cheater in her epic visual album, Lemonade.

But even without the album's recent release, Beyoncé still reigns supreme as the duchess, princess, queen and maybe even king of the Met Gala. Here's a brief history of Beyoncé's Met looks.

Beyoncé 2011


In 2011, Beyoncé made her glorious return to the ball, after attending once in 2008. Her dress, designed by Emilio Pucci, fit perfectly with that year's theme, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty. The dress truly was savage, however, as her husband had to help her climb the famous Met stairs because the dress was simply too tight to walk in.

Beyoncé 2012


In 2012, B stepped out in what would become her signature showing-everything-without-showing-anything look. The dress, by Givenchy, truly stunned with its purple feather accents against the red carpet.

Beyoncé 2013


In 2013, B once again walked the carpet in a Givenchy number, this time with matching "I'm a boss bitch" thigh-high boots.

Beyoncé 2014


Here it is, the year we have all been waiting for. Beyoncé walked in wearing, you guessed it, Givenchy. The singer once again rocked the sheer look, this time with even more strategically placed fabric.

But let's be real, nobody cares about what she was wearing because this was the year Beyoncé's sister, Solange Knowles, stole the show by absolutely beating the crap out of her sister's husband in the elevator. Why? Just go ask Becky with the good hair...

Beyoncé 2015


In 2015, Beyoncé looked in the mirror and must have said "f*ck it" because she showed up in essentially nothing, yet somehow was the most glamorous woman there.

Can you guess the designer? Givenchy, obviously. The dress was allegedly a last-minute outfit change, and it's one we are all happy she made. Slay, Beyoncé, slay.

Here's hoping Queen Bey makes an epic return in 2016.
