Rihanna Thrills Fans and Upsets Catholics with Pope-Inspired Met Gala Outfit

Kim Kardashian attends Met Gala without Kanye West amid rapper’s controversy

The 2018 theme for the Met Gala was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion And The Catholic Imagination, and Kim chose to wear the theme with a gold shimmering gown that featured an encrusted cross on the chest and hip. Not only did she rock a figure hugging gold embellished gown for the gala, but she also flaunted a vintage Versace chain mini dress for the after-party.

Not that these stars seemed to care.at all. The dramatic look was topped off with a structured, embossed leather jacket, emblazoned with a gold cross.

Sarah Jessica Parker, a doyenne of NY high society and the Sex and the City fashionista, walked the red carpet in full-length gold brocade by Dolce and Gabbana and an astonishing head piece. The intricate headpiece was a Neapolitan nativity altar made to scale by the Italian design house. In 2017, the Met Gala raised more than $12 million (£8.8m). Art history references abounded, from the subtle-Kate Bosworth's soft veil and pastel look that resembled a Boticelli Virgin Mary-to the specific, such as Ariana Grande's Vera Wang gown printed with Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel fresco of the Last Judgment. She paired it with a crystal headscarf and wide-brimmed hat by Stephen Jones. I am so honored that this was remade for me!

Amal, an global human rights lawyer, stunned the crowd in a striking metallic floral-print corset dress complete with navy trousers, designed by Richard Quinn.

Though the recent Vogue cover girl arrived with movie star husband George Clooney, the Academy Award victor knew his place. This year event was hosted by Rihanna, Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace.

Gigi Hadid looks gorgeous in her gown as she arrives at the #MetGala.

"Next year's Met Gala is going to have an "Islam" theme", Morgan jokingly wrote in the Mail Online.

"It feels overwhelmingly awesome, but not as overwhelming as I thought it was going to be", the 21-year-old gushed about her night out with Sprouse, who she was spotted kissing in Paris last month.
