As we all know one of the most anticipated events each year in the entertainment and fashion world just took place on the first of May and we can't deny the fact that each year has always been different with a lot of weird and awkward moments.
As the event was themed in remembrance of Karl Lagerfeld, a fashion icon, the icons present did not fail to show up remarkably from the wowing costume of Rihanna to Doja Cat's eye-catching outfits.
With all these celebrities in one place, and some others that will never be at the gala, there are bound to be occurrences that are rarely forgotten like Hayden Panettiere falling down the stairs in 2014 or Stella McCartney stepping on Rihanna's dress in 2014.

This cockroach quickly became a sensation and went viral all around the internet as photographers took pictures of it.
