Each year, fashion’s most beautiful faces grace the red carpet of the Met Gala Ball. Models, actors, actresses and designers flock to the themed event wearing millions of dollars in diamonds, embroidery, cascading silk and one-of-a-kind couture. Under the theme of ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ here are some of the bejewelled and bedazzled bodies who topped the best-dressed lists.
Rihanna has yet be dethroned as the Queen of the Met Gala. She wore this spectacular embellished John Galliano creation, along with a towering bishop’s hat.
The hottest name in the rap game has to be the bold and unabashed Cardi B. The pregnant former-exotic dancer took to the red carpet in this pearl and ruby-encrusted gown by Moschino.
As always, Kim Kardashian made a splash in this skin-tight gold ensemble. The Versace figure-hugging metallic number boasted some cross detailing on the Kardashian’s hip. Kim notably walked the carpet without her husband Kanye West.
Beyonce might not have been able to attend the event but younger sister Solange made sure to represent for the family name. The singer wore this black latex outfit with a do-rag and gold headpiece.
Actress Priyanka Chopra stunned in this Ralph Lauren deep red velvet gown. The look was completed with an elaborate jewelled hoodie and a lengthy velvet train.
Blake Lively wore this awe-inspiring Versace creation. The embroidered dress took 600 hours to make. The train was so impressive it couldn’t fit in a normal limo, the star had to hire a party bus in order to get to the event.
Never one to shy away from a dress theme, Perry wore this custom-made Versace ensemble complete with a pair of angelic wings and not so angelic thigh-high gold boots.
