From rosaries to crosses, the just concluded Met Gala night indeed witnessed an incredibly ornate sector of religious art at the debut of ‘Heavenly Bodies fashion and catholic imagination as this year’s theme ‘Heavenly Bodies, Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’, had on display big names from Kim Kardashian to Madonna, Rihanna, Cardi B, Rita Ora and a host of others.

Also, celebrities hit the red carpet sporting papal-inspired gowns and costumes like jeweled headpieces , tiaras, crystal-encrusted veiling , pendants, cuffs, bold earnings and more.

Recall that the Costume Institute Gala also known as the Met Ball is an annual fund-raising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City.

It holds every first Monday in May, marking the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit.

Here are some of the celebrities who rocked the red carpet of 2018 Met Gala

Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian’s form-fitting Versace gown might not be the most inventive interpretation of “the Catholic imagination”, but it definitely does justice to Kim’s heavenly body, as she look polished and glamorous.

Madonna
Madonna opted for the latter, arriving on the red carpet in a voluminous black gown that was the perfect blend of high fashion and goth prom queen . She topped off the daring look with a bouquet of black roses, a fishnet veil, and a glittering white and gold crown decked out with numerous crosses to keep with the night’s official theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.”

Rihanna
You may the hate pop idol’s idiosyncratic Pope-mod fusion, but the fact of the matter is, this look is already iconic.
Designer Margiela assembled the clerical headgear and the celestial robe, which are undercut by the surprising mini-dress they conceal. The combination makes for an interesting, cheekily irreverent statement.

Cardi B
Cardi B looked ecstatic to attend her very first Met Gala on Monday, as the 25-year-old mom-to-be looked fabulous in a pearl and jewel-encrusted Jeremy Scott gown which hugged her pregnant curves as she arrived at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
The dress featured a thigh-high slit and a billowing ballgown silk skirt for extra drama.

Rita Ora
Rita Ora’s dazzling custom Prada ensemble was regal and feminine, unlike some of the more overt Papal renderings. Ora’s sheer, embellished gown and long dark train hinted at the duality and the reality of Catholic influences, without outright evoking a cassock.

Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj showed up at the Met Gala on Monday night and quickly proved that being bad is sometimes a good thing. In fact, her all-red ensemble showed the devilish side of the singer, and it was perfect for the night’s theme: “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” While many stars decided to channel angels and saints, Nicki went straight for the devil as she went all red.
