The Met Gala fundraiser for New York’s Metropolitan Museum Of Art took place last night, and the celebrities were out in force, but were the fashions hellishly good or holy disasters?
With the theme of Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, there were more crosses on display than at a Madonna gig in the 90s. Oh, and heads up, Pope Francis, if you need a new hat any time soon, supplies might be limited.
Oh yes she Vati-can. After coming dressed as an omelette a few years ago, LGBT+ advocate Rihanna jumps out of the frying pan and into this pearl and crystal encrusted Maison Margiela sacrilicious stunner.

Sarah Jessica Parker was serving Last Emperor realness, although if she raised one arm up and down slowly, she’d look suspiciously like one of those waving Chinese cats.
Lily Collins was having nun of it in this Wednesday Addams hits the convent number. Turns out religious orders have been rocking the LBD for years.
