As is the annual tradition, throngs of Hollywood's most famous—and stylish—stepped out of their cars and onto one of fashion's biggest stages at the entrance to the Metropolitan Museum of Art Monday night in celebration of the year's theme, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.
There was no shortage of religious allusions as fashionistas like Sarah Jessica Parker sported a crown with the nativity scene on it while Ariana Grande posed in a dress imprinted with Michelangelo's The Last Judgment scene. Katy Perry and Rihanna took the theme's inspiration once step further when they arrived as an embellished angel and pope.
For Blake Lively, that meant a colorful tartan ensemble with knee-high boots for Rihanna's late-night bash at NYC hot spot Up&Down while gal pal Gigi Hadid donned a blush metallic pantsuit. Kim Kardashian opted for a sexy bondage look after sporting a Versace chainmail gown to the main event. As for Jennifer Lopez, the triple threat switched out of her Balmain gown and into a colorful mini for a night on the town with her baseball beau, Alex Rodriguez.
Needless to say, the gala may have been over, by the divine style soirée had only just begun.
