Priyanka Chopra to Deepika Padukone — Highlights from the Met Gala 2018


Priyanka Chopra to Deepika Padukone — Highlights from the Met Gala 2018

Fashion's biggest night

By Shweta Gandhi  May 8th, 2018

As per tradition, the Met Gala 2018 took place on the first Monday of May, with all of Hollywood and Bollywood’s A-listers making an appearance. This year’s theme paid tribute to The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s upcoming exhibition ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’, and celebrities reinterpreted the traditions of Catholicism through their ensembles. Amidst the multiple religious references — Priyanka Chopra came dressed as a (fashionable) woman from the Vatican city in a deep maroon velvet gown from Ralph Lauren complete with Swarovski headgear; Rihanna, in her papal crown and cape designed by Maison Margiela, looked like she borrowed the most fabulous fashion relics she could find in the pope’s closet — the highlight was clearly not the outfit, but the accessories that went with them. Crowns, veils, hats inspired by the pope — we had them all. Here are all the best looks (headpieces included) from Met Gala 2018:

Get this: Priyanka Chopra’s handmade piece covered in Swarovski crystals and intricate beadwork took over 250 man hours to create.
