The Met Ball, which is happening (and livestreaming!) this Monday, is one of the most anticipated parties–and red carpets–in the fashion world. And it’s Anna Wintour‘s party, people. She’s the co-chair every year, lending her discerning eye to the event.
The Met Ball red carpet is no place for shrinking violets, and everyone brings their sartorial A-games. This goes for Anna, too. She really lets her love of all things opulent show. We’ve gathered pictures of Anna’s various Met Ball red carpet looks from as far back as 1997, and you can see some of her favorite personal signature looks emerge.
She’s known for wearing Chanel to the event, but that wasn’t always the case. Another house dressed Anna quite a bit (hint: think disgraced designer who took a year to replace). But some elements–like a penchant for white, lots of sequins, and fur–pop up over and over again.
