The title of the Costume Institute’s blockbuster 2018 show, for the Met Gala, was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, and it’s one of the biggest that has ever been produced, with Vatican having lent approximately 50 pieces from the Sistine Chapel Sacristy. But how did the celebrities interpreted the theme of the event? Some added a bejewelled crucifix on their couture attire, while others opted for halos, or High Renaissance inspiration. Katy Perry took it even further, by wearing a Versace gold outfit (with over-the-knee boots), and full-on wings. We can’t really pick favorites here, because there were so many inspired outfits, but we’ll tell you which ones we found more impressive, and on-theme.
