Every year the Met Gala brings an array of fabulous and daring dresses and with this year's theme 'China: Through the Looking Glass' we weren't sure what to expect.

While many played it a little safer than years previous, there were still some who stunned on the red carpet, such as Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce, who all opted for incredible see-through dresses.

From Marilyn Monroe's 'Happy Birthday' moment to Liz Hurley's headline grabbing safety pin dress, take a look at the most iconic and beautiful sheer celebrity dress moments.
