The Met Ball is ALL about the fashion, but with so many celebrities in attendance, there’s always more to the night than just great outfits. From red carpet falls to the elevator fight seen round the world, relive the past most memorable moments from this buzzed-about event!
We know that everyone is anticipating the great fashion and beauty moments from the red carpet at the 2015 Met Gala on May 4, but if history repeats itself, there’s bound at least one crazy moment that we’ll also always remember! In preparation, we’ve rounded up some of the craziest memories from past years — check ’em out!
Met Ball Memorable Moments: Most Hilarious Moments From The Event
Of course, nobody will ever forget the crazy elevator showdown between Jay Z, 45, and his sister-in-law, Solange Knowles, 28, as Beyonce, 33, looked on. Solange got physical with the rapper, and a video of the entire altercation leaked online weeks later. Fortunately, the family seems to have patched things up now, and Jay was right by his wife’s side at her sister’s wedding in November 2014.
And let’s not forget, that same year, Hayden Panettiere, 25, totally took a tumble while heading down a flight of stairs to the red carpet. Luckily, the actress took the fall in stride, laughing as she went down and flashing a huge smile once getting back on her feet.
Naturally, Jennifer Lawrence, 24, also provided a memorable moment (when doesn’t she with her funny antics?!), when she hilariously photobombed Sarah Jessica Parker, 50, on the busy red carpet. It’s always risky to photobomb when you don’t know how someone’s going to react, but J.Law totally went for it, and the Sex and The City star took the joke in stride, posing for photos with the Hunger Games actress later on.
Then there’s the Met Gala streaker, who tore off his clothes, stripping down to only a pair of revealing pink underwear, and attempted to run on the 2014 red carpet. Police quickly interfered, preventing the mystery man from causing too much of a disruption. Phew!
Another moment we’ll always remember? Tiger Woods at the 2013 Ball — and it’s not just because it was his first official appearance with then-girlfriend Lindsay Vonn! Throughout the evening, the pro golfer reportedly partied just a little too hard. As the drinks kept flowing, Tiger allegedly got pretty handsy with his lady, who appeared pretty embarrassed about the whole situation, according to Us Weekly.
A lot of these stars are confirmed to be attending the 2015 Gala, so perhaps they’ll create some new memories that we can talk about for years to come! Then again, there’ll be dozens of A-listers there, so something crazy is bound to happen!
