It has been deemed as the most controversial theme of the Met Gala yet.

"Anna, you famously host the celebrated Met Gala that takes place in Manhattan each year".

Years before Kendall Jenner's almost naked dress and Madonna's thong-bearing ensemble, Rihanna brought some skin to the Met Gala's 2014 "Charles James: Beyond Fashion" carpet in an ab-baring, two-piece ensemble by Stella McCartney. The two, whose friendship spans more than a decade, are no strangers to the Met carpet - the actress herself has appeared at the gala an impressive seven times - and they're known to push the boundaries, with her frequent above-the-knee looks and his sleek high-tops.

This year's theme is "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination", in which designers will show off how Catholicism has influenced fashion throughout the ages.

Like every year, Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute benefit will take place at Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and will be a star-studded affair.

The Met Gala 2018 is here, and this is what we know: Amal Clooney and Rihanna are hosting the event from 9am on Tuesday morning (AEST), Kim Kardashian started a pre-event cleanse days out, and about 700 other fashion insiders and celebrities are counting themselves lucky to be invited.

MET GALA 2018 CHANNEL: For years, the Met Gala red carpet was not broadcast on television, as it is a very exclusive, private event. To follow the great steps she took on the Met Gala red carpet, we take a look at some of her best shoe moments. Even those who have been common fixtures on the red carpet for the gala for years can be excluded from the current year's event.

Alaïa, Balenciaga, Dior, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, John Galliano, Jean Paul Gaultier, Yves Saint Lauren, Balenciaga, Moschino, Christian Lacroix, Karl Lagerfeld, Lanvin, Rodarte, Valentino and of course Versace are among the designers who are set to be featured on tonight's red carpet. According to Fortune, the exhibits are held this year in the Anna Wintour Costume Center, as well as the medieval rooms in the Met on Fifth Avenue, and the Cloisters in northern Manhattan. Here she is pictured attending the "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art Of The In-Between" themed event in New York City on May 1, 2017.

So it's fair to say that whatever Madonna wears for the Met Gala is going to be nothing short of spectacular. Oh, and just for dramatic effect, she arrived fashionably late to steal the show.
