Here's What The Met Gala Looked Like All The Way Back In 2008

The late '00s really were a different time.

Posted on

If you didn't know, the Met Gala is an annual event held at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art to celebrate fashion and raise money for the Met's Costume Institute. This year's gala is on Monday, 7 May.

The event has been chaired by Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, since 1995, and this year's Catholicism-themed Gala will be co-chaired by Rihanna, Amal Clooney, and Donatella Versace.

Since it's one of the ~biggest nights in fashion~, we thought it'd be fun to take a trip down memory lane to the superhero-themed 2008 Gala. Here's who went and what they wore...
