Rihanna dressed like the pope last night. On a normal night that would be the single most newsworthy headline but the 2018 Met Gala was an event filled occasion.
The style stakes were high, and stars did their best to meet this years’ theme,”Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”.
Overall they made bold and brave sartorial choices that were worthy of the stairs of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Rihanna won the dress code, however, arriving in the pearl and crystal-embellished Maison Margiela gown, complete with a mitre-style hat.
Katy Perry was a close second adding huge feathered angel wings to her Versace gold chainmail dress and thigh-high boots.
Other noteworthy moments from the red carpet you might have missed included Madonna’s surprise – and apt – performance, 2 Chainz proposing to his longtime partner, Kesha Ward, and Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin confirmed their relationship – oh, and despite the memes you will see Jason Derulo did not fall down the stairs…
Phew. That’s a lot of action for one night, and we don’t even know what went on at the after party…
