Everything you need to know about this year's Met Gala

Read on below for the rundown on how to watch the Met Gala online, what channel the event is on TV, where it takes place, when the red carpet arrivals begin and more details below. In 1995 the "Queen Bee" of Vogue, Anna Wintour, took over and made it the over-the-top event it is today.

This year's theme, Camp: Notes on Fashion, initially caused some head-scratching, not only from us regular folk, but from the stars and their stylists, too. But really, it's to show off all the fabulous fashion on one of the most famous red carpets in entertainment.

MET GALA 2019 LOCATION: The Met Gala is held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute, at 1000 Fifth Avenue.

There are some celebrities who would never attend as it falls out of sync with their image and that includes Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Julia Robert, and Jennifer Aniston. While she posed for several photos wearing sunglasses, Gaga donned blue eye shadow and a pale pink lip.

Among this year's co-chairs for the star-studded event will include Gucci's creative director Alessandro Michele, Harry Styles, Lady Gaga, Serena Williams and, of course, Anna Wintour.

The 2019 Met Gala is here, which means that the biggest day of the year for fashion is in full effect. It's worth repeating, as we do every year, that the Met Gala is not an ordinary red carpet.

It wouldn't be unusual for Meghan and Kate to attend the star-studded event, as Princess Beatrice attended the gala previous year.

Rihanna made a statement at the 2009 Met Costume Institute Gala ditching the usual ballgown for a fierce Dolce & Gabbana satin tuxedo.

In 2018 it was John Galliano who had the honour of dressing Her Madgesty in all-black, but we wouldn't be surprised if the singer partnered with Moschino again this year, as she did in 2017.

This look declared her the Patron Saint of the Met Gala.

Previous themes have ranged from "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination" to "China: Through the Looking Glass" and have inspired numerous, memorable celebrity outfits.
