Other celebrities hit the red carpet wearing papal-inspired gowns, chainmail costumes reminiscent of the Crusades and in singer Katy Perry’s case – oversized angel wings.

The Met Gala, the benefit event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, is considered the highlight of New York’s social calendar, attracting fashion designers and stars from around the world.

It is known for its expensive tickets, exclusive guest list, and extravagant outfits that are based around a different theme each year.

This year, the theme is Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, which showcases how Catholicism has influenced fashion throughout history.
