The Met Gala is one of the most important fashion events of the year, as the red carpet, which is overseen by Anna Wintour and takes place on the first Monday of May, is now known as the Oscars of fashion. Designers work for months with their muses to create custom gowns that will stand out amongst the sea of A-listers on the Met steps. While you might assume every attendee wears handcrafted couture gowns that cost more than a year's rent, a number of stars have worn high-street dresses to the red carpet, too.
Topshop and H&M always dress stars for the event, so ahead of this year's gala, we're revisiting some of the best affordable looks to hit the steps. Our favourite looks include Kendall Jenner's champagne-coloured satin strapless fishtail gown by Topshop that she wore to her first Met Gala and Hailee Steinfeld's emerald H&M slinky gown with a cut-out along the back.
Ahead of Monday night's red carpet, see nine of the most memorable high-street looks from the Met Gala.
