With a theme like "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination," the Met Gala red carpet could have quickly gone off the rails. It also could have been an utter snoozefest. But thanks to imagination, commitment to theme, and take-risks attitudes, a handful of celebrities won the night. Ahead, my picks for best dressed at the 2018 Met Gala.
Good evening to my Pope Rihanna who always levels up on the Met Gala dress code. Remember ? And the ? This is how it's done people.
Confessional, but make it fashion.
Father T'Challa, who art at the Met Gala, hallowed be thy name. Is this our king? Yes, yes it is.
Audible gasps for this gorgeous look.
Three Kings. Three Wise Men. The Holy Trinity—whatever you want to call them there's something kind of amazing about this trio's look.
Taking "heavenly bodies" quite literally.
Who else could pull off a Joan of Arc warrior chic look?
Props to the Met Gala newcomer for leaning into the theme.
