The Met Gala, otherwise known as the Oscars of fashion, is a sartorial playground for Hollywood to experiment with its style. The annual fundraising event has brought us headpieces and sweeping trains, a boatload of feathers and jewels, and some of the most breathtaking fashion moments we've ever seen.
