It's long been established that 2007 was the most iconic year of the noughties.

And the annual Met Gala really raised the bar for memorable fashion moments. From Jessica Simpson's OTT tan and plunging neckline alongside date John Mayer; Cameron Diaz's magenta pretty princess gown; Ivanka Trump, then 25, going for the full noughties New York-socialite look and Emily Blunt alongside ex-boyfriend Michael Buble (did you know that? Because I didn't).

Not to mention US President Donald Trump and first lady Melania looking very...well, the Trumps in 2007.

Ahead of next week's Met Gala, we combed through the archives to go remind ourselves of our favourite year in modern fashion.

Let's take a stroll down memory lane, shall we?
