The Met Gala is one heck of a bash. In honor of the Costume Institute Gala 2015 — which goes down on Monday, May 4, Us Weekly looks back at some of the biggest, never-forget OMG moments from the annual VIP affair.
Solange Knowles, Jay Z Elevator Brawl:
Never has a family feud been so well-documented and totally insane. Following the gala last year, Beyonce’s sister Solange Knowles attacked Bey’s husband Jay Z in an elevator while leaving an afterparty. Caught by surveillance cameras — which were later leaked online by an employee — Solange was caught kicking and punching her brother-in-law while a calm Beyonce stood by. After the brawl, the trio issued a statement explaining that they were dealing with their issues privately as a family.
Kim Kardashian’s God-Awful, Make-It-Go-Away Dress:
At the 2013 Met Gala, a very pregnant Kim Kardashian made a very unfortunate fashion choice. The E! reality star donned a Riccardo Tisci-designed Givenchy floral-print gown (gloves included!) that has been memed in every way possible since. The dress was so unattractive, Kim’s sister Khloe Kardashian even admitted she hated it. “I think Kim is beautiful. I wish, like, the gloves…I just felt like it was too covered somehow, just because her body, her boobs, her belly…just all looked like one,” she said on the Today show.
Tiger Woods Got More Than a Little Tipsy:
Golf pro Tiger Woods had a really, really good time at the 2013 Met Gala — maybe too good. Woods, who attended the event with then-girlfriend Lindsey Vonn, got so tipsy at the afterparty at Boom Boom Room, that sources told Us Weekly he needed assistance. “Tiger looked uncomfortable,” an onlooker at the fete told Us at the time. At one point in the evening, Woods fell over on the stairs and couldn’t get up until Vonn helped him off the floor.
Reese Witherspoon Gets Seriously Saucy:
Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon was everybody’s best friend at the bash the following year. While in an elevator with pals Cara Delevingne, Zooey Deschanel and Kate Upton at the 2014 Met Gala, the mom of three cursed and failed to pronounce Delevingne’s name. “If you force me to say your last name, I’ll be f—ked,” Witherspoon was caught saying in an Instagram video posted to the model’s account. “I don’t know what your f—king name is,” she added after numerous failed attempts.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ Red Carpet Debut!
Debauchery aside, there are also — of course — amazing classy moments at the A-list affair. One example? Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. The couple posed together for the first time on a red carpet as a married couple last year, looking enviably perfect.
Hayden Panettiere’s Stair Tumble:
Whoops! Hayden Panettiere almost completely tumbled down the stairs at the 2014 Met Gala after losing her balance on the red-carpeted stairs. “Hallelujah!” she shouted as she reached the final step. “I made it up the stairs!”
Time will only tell when it comes to this year’s OMG moments!
