With one of the three 2018 Met Gala hosts being Rihanna, you can definitely expect it to be off the hook.

Before celebs hit the red carpet for the year's biggest and most prestigious fashion event, there's the all-day glam and pampering that goes on behind the scenes! We're eagerly anticipating what the Queen of the Met Ball (Sorry SJP) will show up in tonight, but just before then, let's take you through all her past Met Gala outfits.

Though unconfirmed, many also speculate that the smoking incident was one of the reasons that the Met Gala instated its age restriction. Per THR's source, the Met Gala will allow select exceptions if the minor is accompanies by his or her parents. Yet, either incarnation would be entirely apt for the unique dress code. It was evidently noticeable that her looks had changed since she had last attended.

For 2012's "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations" theme, Rihanna slithered onto the carpet in a sexy, sultry Tom Ford crocodile-embossed leather dress.

We're waiting with bated breath to see what the event's all-stars - and by that I nearly exclusively mean co-host Rihanna, who should be canonized for her sartorial contributions - will show up wearing.

When Reese Witherspoon struggled with how to pronounce Cara Delevingne's name during a lift ride after they met on the 2014 red carpet: "I don't know what your f---in' name is".

Two years earlier was when Rihanna really cemented herself as a Met Gala star, channeling the event's theme of "China: Through the Looking Glass" in a breathtaking, embroidered canary-yellow gown by Chinese couturier Guo Pei. Oh, and just for dramatic effect, she arrived fashionably late to steal the show.
