While it might be tough to see how attendees could top their ensembles from 2018’s “Heavenly Bodies”-themed event, several celebrities will likely rise to the challenge.

Though it’s not possible to see inside the Costume Institute Gala from home, you can watch celebrities as they arrive on the Met Gala red carpet to see what they wear for the occasion.
