The Met Gala 2018 red carpet is collectively making us go, "Holy mother of Hollywood!"

The brightest names came together for the annual fundraising fete in New York — Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute, and this year's theme was — Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.

One lesson of the night: If anyone can make a mitre (the ceremonial headgear of the Pope) modern, it's Rihanna. The Grammy-winning artiste — never one to shy away from a grand entrance — arrived dripping in pearls and crystals in a Maison Margiela by John Galliano mini dress, ornate robe and beaded papal headgear.

Along with Rihanna, other standouts included Zendaya, a fierce Versace warrior punk princess in armour-like layers and chainmail fabric, inspired by Joan of Arc, Blake Lively who had to take a bus to the Met, and Madonna. Obviously.

"Religion and spirituality has informed my work for my entire career, and fashion also, and combining the two is the perfect marriage. And then we bring in Jean Paul and it's the perfect three-way!" says Madonna, who obviously showed up in Gaultier.

This year's co-chairs also included Vogue's Anna Wintour, Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace. Clooney arrived early in a striking silver corseted top, navy slacks and a cascading metallic, rose-patterned skirt. The ensemble, from designer Richard Quinn, gave a crinkling sound as she made her way up the Met's famous steps.

Accompanying her was her somewhat famous husband George Clooney, who clearly knew his place. "I'm the flower on the side," he joked to reporters. We 're not arguing with you there.
