Saying Beyoncé's shockingly sheer Givenchy Haute Couture gown at the 2015 Met Gala was a hit is an understatement: It made people lose their minds. From the stratgeically-placed multicolor stones to her I Dream of Jeannie-like ponytail, she had everyone bowing down.

Editors gushed over the actress's custom sparkly, feathered, ombré gown at the 2015 Golden Globes almost as much as the the star herself did: "It’s so beautiful! I feel very lucky to be wearing it," Moore said.

Cate is known for pulling off bold looks the rest of us couldn't even dream of attempting, and this pink fringe Givenchy Haute Couture design she wore to the 2016 Golden Globes is one of those dresses that is almost definitively "for Cate only."

There's a lot to take in with Nicki's printed Givenchy 2011 Grammys look, so we'll let her put it in her own words: "This outfit is a masterpiece by Givenchy and what they made for me is a miraculous piece of lioness meets her cub meets fierce-osity meets fabulosity meets fashionista meets runway meets everything, darling," she said on the red carpet.

We're not sure which element of Bella's Givenchy Haute Couture look at the 2016 Met Gala was more head-turning — the poofy train on her velvet gown or the thigh-high socks on her peep-toe boots.

Kanye and Liv both arrived at the Givenchy ready-to-wear show in 2011 wearing the same rottweiler-print sweater from the brand's men's collection. Then Kendall wore her sparkly version in 2014 (and again in 2015 sans pants), making this the most intense T-shirt faceoff ever.

Looking back, Ciara's 2013 MTV Video Music Awards sheer, sparkly Givenchy gown was the feathery precursor to Beyoncé's major Met Gala moment in 2015.
