    While we are celebrating the presence of Indian and Indian-origin celebrities on this year's Met Gala red carpet, let's go down memory lane and revisit some iconic looks from the previous Met Galas.

    8. Remember when Deepika Padukone looked like a Disney princess at the 2019 Met Gala, the theme for which was "Celebrating Camp: Notes on Fashion"?
