From saints to sinners, guests took to heart the 2018 theme with some of the most bonkers fashion statements ever
From Pope Rihanna to archangel Katy Perry, then Madonna, Chadwick Boseman all land in Met Gala 2018 most outrageous outifit
The Met Gala is fashion’s most outrageous night of the year.
The who’s who of the celeb world took to the red carpet for this year’s bash at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The dress code was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination and the guests didn’t hold back.
Katy Perry came as an archangel, Rihanna dressed like the pope, and Sarah Jessica Parker a night of high fashion inspired by religion.
Bejeweled crosses, veils and halo-inspired headdresses ruled on the red carpet, dubbed the Oscars of the east Coast for its celebrity guest list and stunning outfits.
From saints to sinners, guests took to heart the 2018 theme, although some commentators had feared the Catholic theme might yield the most controversial Met Gala ever.
Here are the night’s wildest outfits…
The ‘Sex and the City’ actress opted for a gold Dolce & Gabbana gown embroidered with sacred hearts and a towering nativity scene headpiece.
The supermodel arrived in a sexy black fishnet gown while rocking pink hair, yellow eyeshadow, and a veiled headpiece with crystals dangling in front of her face.
The mum-to-be dressed her bump in a stunning pearl gown and headpiece designed by Jeremy Scott.
The Black Panther star was among the few men going avant-garde in an ivory cape with gold beaded crosses, an embellished suit, and gold colored shoes.
Madonna, a key religious provocateur early in her pop career, turned demure in a black, long-sleeved gown, with a huge gold crown, and a full face veil.
One of the more head-turning outfits of the night belonged to Katy Perry, who walked the red carpet wearing a giant pair of angel wings.
The bizarre feathered accessories were so big that Perry was seen knocking someone over when she walked past them.
The wings were teamed with a gold Versace gown with matching thigh-high boots.
Rihanna, one of the Met Gala co-hosts, dressed like a pope, sporting a head-turning, jewel-encrusted mitre with matching mini-dress and a priestly-style cape designed by Maison Margiela.
The Oscar-winning actress blew the fashion pack away in a turquoise Valentino look from Pierpaolo Piccioli’s Spring 2018 couture show.
