It's been a year since that ominous bust-up in the lift between Beyonce's sister Solange and long-term husband and music mogul, Jay Z. The Met Gala doesn't just bring us celebrity gossip and historical moments but immense dresses and makeup looks to gawp at...

What actually IS The Met Gala?

The Met Gala isn't a music award ceremony, oh no, it's short for 'The Costume Institute Gala' also known as The Met Ball. It's an annual fundraising event for a-listers and the filthy rich and it marks the grand opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institution based in New York. Basically it holds an annual fashion exhibit and every year the celebrities and stars come out to celebrate the theme and tone of the display.

At first glance, some outfit choices may be seen taken as a little risuqe, if not crazy - but if you see the themes of each art exhibit, it'll all make sense and Alexa Chung will go from looking like she doesn't fit in at all to OH MY SHE GOT IT RIGHT ON POINT.
