Meta Gala 2018 red carpet arrivals

Met Gala a milestone in long link between sacred and profane

The Latest: Gary Oldman weighs in on Wintour's Met tenure

Enter the designers behind these famous footwear appearances: From veterans such as Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele and Marc Jacobs to the relatively new, like Virgil Abloh, the Met Gala has been graced by many a designer shoe - but also by the designers themselves.

Preparations for this year's Met Gala are fully underway and Madonna is already looking like a snack, teasing her beauty regime ahead of the prestigious event.

The Met Gala is known for bringing together dozens of celebrities, from Hollywood veterans to up-and-comers, under one roof for a night of fashion and fun.

It was also one of the most simple looks she had gone for on the red carpet at the Met Gala.

This year's theme is: "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination".

According to an organizer for the Met Gala, which is held at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, the annual costume ball will no longer allow celebrities under 18 from attending because the event is "inappropriate" for minors. These particular looks will be splashed all over the place, as the Met Gala red carpet can actually make or break a star's fashion credibility. This year, the event falls on May 7, 2018 and the red carpet coverage on E! airs from 6:30 - 9 p.m. ET. In fact, this year's hosts read like a Who's Who in glitterati from around the world, including Rihanna, Amal Clooney, Donatella Versace and, of course, "Vogue" editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

Ann Wintour has say over who attends each year's Met Gala. The actual exhibit opens May 10 inside The Met Fifth Avenue and The Met Cloisters.

While many celebrities shied away from the theme "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of The In-Between" Rihanna confidently nailed it.

"Fashion and religion have always been intertwined, mutually inspiring and informing one another", said curator Andrew Bolton in a statement on The Met's website.

The designers featured in the actual exhibit, which is on display until October 8, may give a hint of which designers you can expect to see on the red carpeted stairs Monday. The "Stay" singer rocked an undo updo and understated makeup - letting her diamonds (including Jacob & Co. four-carat diamond studs and a 18k white-gold diamond choker and five rings) steal the show.
