The Met Gala, the benefit event for the Metropolitan Museum or Art’s Costume Institute, is considered the highlight of New York’s social calendar, attracting fashion designers and stars from around the world to the black-tie affair.

This year’s theme, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, showcases how Catholicism has influenced fashion throughout history.

Celebrities hit the red carpet on Monday night, sporting papal-inspired gowns, chainmail costumes reminiscent of the Crusades and in singer Katy Perry’s case – oversized angel wings.
