Most memorable red carpet looks from the past year

From the Grammy's to the Met Gala and the Oscars, there have been some extravagant red carpet outfits over the past year.

Whether it's the Academy Awards, the Grammy's, the Golden Globes or the Met Gala, audience eyes are often fixated on the red carpet. Over the past year, everyone from reality stars to actors made some big splashes during some of the biggest shows of the year. 

Lady Gaga is known for her over-the-top costumes, but she may have outdone herself with her 2019 Met Gala look. 

She didn't just show up in just one outfit, she instead rocked four outfits as she made her way down the red carpet and into the event.

Gaga's Met Gala look wasn't her only memorable red carpet look in 2019.

She accidentally paid tribute to the late actress Judy Garland during the 2019 Golden Globes. Wearing a large sky-blue Valentino gown, many thought she was trying to honor Garland by wearing a dress similar to the one worn in the 1954 version of A Star is Born. 

Gaga said it was a happy accident saying "it looks an awful lot like it, doesn't it?"
