Fashion

May 8, 2018 | BY Cheryl Chan

The annual Met Gala has long been considered the Oscars of fashion, this year's red carpet followed their most controversial theme to date, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion And The Catholic Imagination.

Many of our favourite style stars rose to the occasion donning halo inspired headgear, literal crosses and even Joan of Arc inspired looks.

Here's our summary of our favourites and the downright questionable looks of the night.

The Good

Blake Lively in Atelier Versace

Look, it's no surprise that Blake Lively pretty much slays it every time she appears on the red carpet but this beaded velvet number from Atelier Versace and gold headpiece takes it to a whole other level.

Madonna in Jean Paul Gaultier

Madonna might be the OG when it comes to fashion, but someone needs to tell her Halloween isn't for another five months.

This is what happens when you take the term "let your freak flag fly" too seriously....

Rihanna in John Galliano for Maison Margiela

When your dress also doubles up as a takeaway container.

The Gucci Gang (aka Alessandro Michele, Lana del Rey and Jared Leto in Gucci)

Let's be real, this is probably just regular Tuesday night garb for all three of them.

Cardi B in Moschino

When it comes to loving Cardi B, you're preaching to the choir. The self-proclaimed "b*tch people love to hate" is killing the fashion game in this jewel-encrusted Moschino look.
