Every first Monday of May is fashion’s most extravagant night in New York: the Met Gala. With this year’s theme being “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” we couldn’t wait to see what some of fashion’s biggest icons would come up with!
Adorned in plenty of angelic tiaras, lace veils, capes, and crosses, lots of stars took on the theme in timeless looks—possibly as timeless as Catholicism itself. Here our some of our ~fave~ looks from last night’s event.
