The 2017 Met Gala is this Monday, and while many stars will be coming out in the name of fashion, we're mostly looking forward to seeing one in particular: Rihanna. The Met is a museum for art, and, in the wise words of actress Mia Farrow, Rihanna is a work of art.
While we anxiously anticipate what she'll wear this year (a dress that requires four handlers instead of a mere three, maybe?), let's take a look back at Rihanna's many iconic Met Gala outfits over the last decade.

This year's exhibit honored Alexander McQueen, but Rihanna went with a Stella McCartney lace gown.
She wore a sleek crocodile Tom Ford gown.
Once again, Rihanna wore Stella McCartney. This time she went with a white two-piece set.
Rihanna was once of the few celebs to actually wear a Chinese designer to the "China: Through the Looking Glass" exhibition. She told Vanity Fair that she discovered Chinese couturier Guo Pei while casually researching online. Queen of using Google. Queen of the Met Gala forever.
