Anna is largely responsible for making The Met Gala what it is today: Fashion’s biggest night. (Nope, not the Oscars.) And a giant source of funding for the museum.

Below, a look back at her many appearances and style choices. Mostly in Chanel. The Devil Wears Chanel.

She usually goes relatively simple, because it’s not about her. (It’s totally about her.)

My favorites are the long-sleeved peach/black/silver/purple gown and the silver/gray look with the strong-shoulder bolero.

Jackie in Valentino at the 1979 Met Gala. The theme was “The Imperial Style: Fashions of the Hapsburg Era.” 22 years later, the theme would be hers: “Jacqueline Kennedy: The White House Years.”

1979: Jackie’s off-shoulder tiers and ruffles echo the Hapsburg theme.
