The 2018 Met Gala has been a highly anticipated fashion parade ever since the official theme was announced – “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” to be hosted by Amal Clooney, Rihanna, and Donatella Versace. With so much room for interpretation (and many people wondering about potential fashion controversies), the world’s most glamorous individuals didn’t disappoint when it was time to reveal their Met Gala creations. Here’s our favorite “heavenly showstoppers” of the evening.
Mrs. George Clooney looked stunning in a metallic floral corset dress with a dramatic train, paired with navy pants by Richard Quinn.
We’d be disappointed if Ri Ri showed up to the 2018 Met Gala in anything less bold than a full-on, Pope-inspired ensemble (complete with the iconic hat), custom made by John Galliano.
Bella Hadid was a gothic temptress in a structured, curve-hugging gown by Chrome Hearts Official.
With golden embroidery set against a powder blue background, Diane Kruger’s gorgeous gown alluded to the more angelic side of the Met Gala theme.
Rosie was perhaps the most “heavenly” beauty of the night, wearing a custom gold masterpiece by Ralph Lauren.
Wearing Oscar de la Renta, the actress combined innocence, purity, and couture to perfection.
Representing for the men, Chadwick Boseman looked absolutely dashing in a papal Versace number.
A theme surrounding “fashion and the Catholic imagination” practically begs for an appearance by Madonna herself – this time, looking like gothic royalty in a Jean Paul Gaultier gown.
