Katy Perry has never been one to shy away from outrageous outfits on the red carpet. So it comes as a bit of a surprise that the singer's debut at the 2009 Met Gala, which is an opportunity for celebrities to really go all out, was a demure Tommy Hilfiger gown topped off with a blunt black bob. The next year, however, Perry delivered the wacky fashion she is known for, wearing a CuteCircuit gown covered in 3,200 LED lights. It literally lit up the red carpet. After taking a brief break, Perry returned to the Met Gala in 2013, wearing a regal Dolce & Gabbana ensemble, and followed it up in 2015 with an eclectic Moschino dress. As co-chair of the annual gala this year, it's safe to assume that her 2017 look will outshine the others. Here, a look back at Perry's Met Gala looks over the years.
