It's hard to imagine a KarJenner-free red carpet, but it wasn't until 2013 that Kim made her debut, followed by her first cover for Vogue in April 2014. Now, the KarJenners continue to bring their sexy brand of dressing to the forefront of fashion prom. Ahead of the 2022 Met Gala, take a look back at the family's most memorable Met style moments to date. 02 of 25 Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at the 2013 Met Gala It's the dress that launched 1,000 memes, but Kim loved her custom floral Givenchy look so much (even the built-in gloves), she wore it again two years later for Halloween when pregnant with Saint. For his part, Kanye West opted for a sleek black suit. 03 of 25 Kanye West and Kim Kardashian at the 2014 Met Gala Rabbani and Solimene Photography/Getty Images The couple took the theme seriously in 2014, paying homage to designer Charles James with Kanye wearing a black tux with coattails and Kim a blue strapless Lanvin gown with a black waistband and thigh-high slit. 04 of 25 Kendall Jenner at the 2014 Met Gala Evan Agostini/Invision/AP 2014 marked Kendall Jenner's Met Gala debut, and she went for a full-on princess moment in a custom blush mermaid-style Topshop gown and 82 carats of Chopard diamonds around her neck. (And we imagine the look inspired a ton of prom outfits that year.) 05 of 25 Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at the 2015 Met Gala David Fisher/REX Shutterstock At first, Kim's sheer crystal-embroidered Roberto Cavalli gown gave us flashback's to Beyoncé's 2012 Met Gala "naked dress," but it turned out the star was inspired by another pop icon. "Tonight's inspiration! Cher at the 1st ever Met Gala," Kim wrote on Instagram, adding, "I just met her and told her this photo was my inspiration for my dress tonight! She is so beautiful! So happy I met her!!" 06 of 25 Kendall Jenner at the 2015 Met Gala Kendall's crystal-covered gown was custom designed by then Calvin Klein creative director Francisco Costa. "We only showed Kendall one option — the perfect one," he told PEOPLE at the time. "We wanted her to feel sexy, luxurious and confident." The vibrant color was inspired by the theme "China: Through the Looking Glass," and was the starting point for the dress. "I wanted the color of the dress to resemble jade, which to me is very emblematic of China," he said, adding that the lace-up sides were a last-minute add to "emphasize Kendall's already amazing shape." 07 of 25 Kris Jenner at the 2015 Met Gala Proud mama coming through! The momager got her first Met invite in 2015 in a red ruched Balmain gown with shoulder pads, teamed with a statement belt, shoulder-grazing earrings and a very '80s-inspired fauxhawk. 08 of 25 Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at the 2016 Met Gala Andrew H. Walker/REX/Shutterstock Kim described her custom Balmain look as "blingy, sexy, robot," while Kanye wore ripped jeans (and colored contacts!) so it was a great year for all. 09 of 25 Kendall Jenner at the 2016 Met Gala Andrew H.

After telling Ellen DeGeneres she didn't know if she could wear real jewelry again following the harrowing experience, she skipped statement diamonds altogether. 13 of 25 Kylie Jenner at the 2017 Met Gala David Fisher/REX/Shutterstock Kylie called her sheer embellished custom-made Versace gown, which she teamed with a bold platinum wig, "a dream come true." 14 of 25 Kendall Jenner at the 2017 Met Gala David Fisher/REX/Shutterstock The supermodel turned heads the second she hit the carpet in her see-through La Perla Haute Couture gown which featured a dramatic front cut-out and visible thong bodysuit underneath. 15 of 25 Kim Kardashian at the 2018 Met Gala Amy Sussman/WWD/REX/Shutterstock The star channeled '90s glam in this showstopping gold chainmail Versace gown, which she paired with a slicked-back, half-up ponytail and dramatic smoky eye. 16 of 25 Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner at the 2018 Met Gala John Shearer/Getty All eyes were on Kylie, who made her first red carpet appearance post-baby and red carpet debut with rapper boyfriend Travis Scott, at the 2018 "Heavenly Bodies" themed event. 17 of 25 Kendall Jenner at the 2018 Met Gala Charles Sykes/Invision/AP/REX/Shutterstock The supermodel switched gears and opted for an angelic off-the-shoulder ruched couture top with with sheer elbow-length gloves and matching "long train" couture pants by Off-White instead of her usual glam gown. 18 of 25 Kris Jenner at the 2018 Met Gala John Shearer/Getty For her third Met Gala apperarance, the Kardashian-Jenner family matriarch pulled out all the stops in a Tommy Hilfiger gown with an embellished bodice and feathered skirt. 19 of 25 Kanye West and Kim Kardashian at the 2019 Met Gala Kanye West, Kim Kardashian West. Theo Wargo/WireImage While Kim went high-fashion in a custom Thierry Mugler "dripping wet" dress (the designer's first new creation in 20 years!), Kanye made his return to the Met after a two year hiatus in a simple $40 Dickies jacket. 20 of 25 Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner at the 2019 Met Gala Kylie Jenner (R) and Travis Scott at the 2019 Met Gala. Neilson Barnard/Getty Fans drew comparisons to Lil' Kim's iconic 1999 VMAs look when Kylie wore a mermaid-like purple wig and Swarovski crystal-embroidered Atelier Versace gown to the Met Ball. For the second year in a row, boyfriend Travis Scott joined her wearing a look by Dior Men. 21 of 25 Kendall Jenner at the 2019 Met Gala John Shearer/Getty The supermodel looked fierce in an orange feather-accented Atelier Versace gown with so many plumes at the bottom, Kendall said she "almost tripped myself!" 22 of 25 Corey Gamble and Kris Jenner at the 2019 Met Gala Jamie McCarthy/Getty Jaws dropped when the momager hit the Met red carpet in a sleek blonde wig paired with her Tommy Hilfiger gown, which Kris said Kylie encouraged her to wear. "A couple of hours ago Kylie decided that I should be blonde. 'Mom, there's no black hair tonight. You should be blonde,' " Kris said on the red carpet. 23 of 25 Kim Kardashian at the 2021 Met Gala Mike Coppola/Getty While Kim is known for baring it all on the carpet, at the 2021 Met Gala, she arrived in a black Balenciaga look that covered up her entire body. She wore a custom ensemble, featuring a long-sleeve turtleneck bodysuit worn under an oversize T-shirt dress with long pleated train. The edgy outfit was complete with jersey boots, jersey gloves and a mask that covered her face and head. 24 of 25 Kendall Jenner at the 2021 Met Gala John Shearer/WireImage Kendall paid homage to Audrey Hepburn's iconic Givenchy gown from My Fair Lady as she sported a sheer crystal-embellished Givenchy Haute Couture gown over a corset bodysuit complete with a retro updo and sparkling high-neck choker. 25 of 25 Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble at the 2021 Met Gala Mike Coppola/Getty Kris posed alongside Gamble during the 2021 Met Gala, where they both sported black suits.
