Iconic Looks From the Met Gala

Zendaya channels Joan of Arc in a custom Versace gown at the 2018 Met Gala.

The Met Gala is always one of the most thrilling days of the year in the fashion world. Each year, we see stars sporting incredible, avant-garde looks inspired by the gala’s theme. This year’s theme was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” The theme was designed to create a dialogue between fashion and the stunning artistic representations of Catholicism featured in many of the Met’s religious artworks. Below are some of our favorite looks from the Met Gala

Lana Del Rey in custom Gucci.

Stars took many different approaches to dressing in this years theme. Some took the theme more literally by recreating specific artistic representations of Catholicism, like Lana Del Rey who wore a custom Gucci dress that featured a heart centerpiece affixed with daggers, a reference to classic artistic depictions of Our Lady Of Sorrows.

Rihanna stunned in Maison Margiela and a borrowed mitre.

Rihanna, one of the evening’s cohosts (and always one to watch at the Met Gala), also took a more literal approach, wearing a richly embellished papal-inspired ensemble. She even borrowed a real cardinal’s hat, which was loaned to her by Cardinal Timothy Dolan.

Along with all the richly brocaded and boldly iconographic looks worn at the gala, we saw two kinds of jewelry: oversized, show-stopping pieces (like the evening’s many tiaras and headdresses) and simple, classic pieces that served to accent and compliment stars’ bold ensembles without overpowering them.

Rihanna chose both a bold headpiece and more subtle jewelry to compliment her look. Here you can see her accessorizing with several pairs of small, gorgeous diamond hoops.

Get the look: Round Diamond Hoops in White Gold and Round Diamond Hoops in Yellow Gold.

Ariana Grande stunned in a custom Vera Wang dress that replicated some of the iconic art found in the Sistine Chapel. 

Ariana chose to accessorize her heavenly ensemble with only one piece of jewelry, a stunning pair of large round white diamond studs.

Diamond studs proved particularly popular among stars this year, with many stars choosing to accessorize with their simple beauty, as to not distract from their bold ensembles.

Kylie Jenner chose to wear large diamond studs as well, making her first major public appearance since giving birth to her daughter Stormi in a sleek black velvet Alexander Wang gown accessorized with small sunglasses and cushion cut diamond studs.
