Stars at the 2018 Met Gala wore Catholic-inspired looks on the red carpet. The annual event’s theme was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”. The event showcased an exhibition of items from the Vatican and other Catholic-inspired artistic items.
Stars like Katy Perry, Rihanna, Sarah Jessica Parker and Andy Cohen arrived in over-the-top looks that capitalized on familiar imagery from the Church.
Rihanna kicked off the night, arriving first in a short white dress and hat similar to the one worn by the pope in public.
Katy Perry arrived dressed in angel wings and posed for photos on the red carpet kneeling in a prayer position.
SJP and Andy arrived together in matching gold, with the “Sex and the City” star adorned in Sacred Hearts.
Meanwhile, “Ladybird” director Greta Gerwig turned heads again in a thick and bloated outfit inspired by the typical garb a nun would wear.
The red carpet event included crosses, rosary beads and other religious imagery designed to turn heads and be provocative on the red carpet. While the theme was meant to be controversial, many were quick to note how offensive they found the entire theme on social media.
