Katy Perry’s Most Iconic Met Gala Looks Through the Years: Bold Blue Tommy Hilfiger, Graffiti-adorned Jeremy Scott and More


Katy Perry has made some of the Met Gala’s boldest style statements since 2009. For 2018’s “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” theme, she dominated the red carpet in a striking Versace ensemble featuring massive angel wings.

A year later, the “American Idol” star continued to dazzle as a Moschino chandelier for “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” and the same night, she wowed the Big Apple by attending the after party dressed as a hamburger (yes, you read that right). 

She never holds back and these are just a few of her jaw-dropping looks. As we anticipate her attendance for 2024’s “The Garden of Time,” keep scrolling below for her latest and greatest Met Gala moments.
