Met Gala 2018: Heavenly bodies! Rihanna steals the show again in racy papal outfit at Catholic-themed red carpet alongside Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez
Forget Halloween, for celebrities dress-up time happens in May – at the annual Met Gala.
And fashion’s biggest night didn’t let style fans down on Monday, as the stars revealed their imaginative takes on the theme Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.
Dripping in gold, a busty Kim Kardashian showed off her heavenly body in a skin-tight Versace sheath, while Jennifer Lopez went all out in a bedazzled jeweled Balmain gown.
But it was pop star Rihanna, always one to push the boundaries of fashion, who took over the carpet at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in a jaw dropping Pope inspired mini dress and jacket with a matching hat by Maison Margiela.
Rihanna dazzled in her heavily beaded white and black mini dress with a matching jacket and hat – from Maison Margiela by John Galliano.
The songstress’s inspiration was clear – with the papal influence undeniable. Of course there were some key moderations – the beaded ensemble was cut so to show off her cleavage, as well as her toned legs.
The 30-year-old beauty’s strapless gown featured two different hemlines; she added a coordinating coat and hat with a chunky necklace and Christian Louboutin heels.
Rihanna painted her pout a gold and mauve hue with charcoal colored smokey eye makeup.
