SJP is another stylish celeb who had more humble beginnings.

Her first time at the Met was back in 1995 and her outfit of choice was a sleek black dress for that year's theme of "Haute couture."

To be fair, it doesn't seem as though very many people were dressed according to theme back them.

Who can forget this Met gala debut?

Kim made headlines, and left many scratching their heads, after she wore this floor-length floral Givenchy dress to her first Met Ball.

The theme was Punk: Chaos to Couture, but it seemed Kim may have mistakenly gotten an invitation to the 2004 Fashion and Furniture themed gala instead.

Victoria's first time at the Met Gala back in 2003 is a reminder to us all that the early 2000's was a terrible time in fashion.

The theme for the year was _Goddess: The Classical Mode _ and the former Spice Girl wore a see-through, rhinestone-covered Dolce & Gabbana number with some uncomfortable looking shoes.

Thank goodness we've all evolved past this.

You would never guess it, but before Rih Rih started absolutely slaying the Met Gala, she was stepping out in more basic looks.

Her very first Met Gala was back in 2007 and the theme was Poiret: King of Fashion.

She wore a white basic-for-Rihanna dress by Georges Chakra and while it is cute, it's nothing compared to what she wears now.
