The Best Looks From The 2018 MET Gala

By on May 10, 2018

Heavenly indeed! Fashion’s annual extravaganza, the 2018 Met Gala had the theme of ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ and as such saw such a display of extravagance that left us awestruck.

This year’s theme has received its fair share of criticism for religious appropriation and mocking symbols of Christianity with several celebrities including Wendell Rodricks and Piers Morgan expressing their disapproval.

Fashion-wise, the focus was definitely on the intricate hand-worked details in beading and embroidery with celebs descending in elaborate creations on the beige carpet of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Here are some of the best looks from the night.

The Gucci Triumvirate:
