Tonight, New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art rolled out the red carpet for the Met Gala, the annual opening party for its spring exhibition. The invite-only event is also a fundraiser for the museum’s Costume Institute.
Celebrities — including co-chairs Rihanna, Amal Clooney, Donatella Versace and Anna Wintour — dressed to the theme of the show, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.”
Singers Katy Perry and Rihanna wore some of the night’s most memorable ensembles. Perry donned six-foot angel wings to pair with a metallic gold Versace mini dress and Rihanna seemed to channel the pope, wearing a pearl and jewel-encrusted mitre and robe designed by Margiela.
Emmy award-winning writer Lena Waithe stood out in a rainbow-flag cape designed by Carolina Herrera, among the celestial gold and silver dresses. The bold look was praised on Twitter.
