Rihanna and Katy Perry were among the celebrities who took the theme of the Met Gala very religiously this year.

Rihanna looked absolutely papal when she arrived in a Maison Margiela pearl- and crystal-embellished gown by John Galliano, complete with a matching papal mitre and necklace.

 

Perry also wowed in a metallic mini-dress, long boots and massive feathery wings. She looked like a post-punk angel. Her wingspan was so broad she was forced to turn sideways as the entered the museum.

This year's theme is the influence of Catholicism on fashion.

Both singers have been the gala before. Last year, Rihanna was dressed in Commes des Garcons, with stagey pink on her cheeks. Perry wore a veiled dress created just for her by John Galliano.

 

This year’s Met Gala was hosted by Rihanna, Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace alongside Vogue’s Anna Wintour. Rihanna chose a Maison Margiela Artisana attire accompanied with a Pope like hat.

 Amal attended the evening wearing a dramatic metallic floral-print corset dress and navy pants designed by Richard Quinn. She was accompanied by husband George Clooney, who chose a traditional black tuxedo.

While Hollywood men like to stick to the conventional tuxedos, this year’s gala was an exception with Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman and singer-actor Jared Leto, giving women a tough competition with their dramatic sartorial choices.

Boseman wore an immaculate white Atelier Versace suit with gold baroque print, a cape with cross imagery and tassel chain.

While Leto, who is known for his quirky fashion sense, went a step ahead by channelling Jesus.

However Twitter couldn't get enough of RiRi and Leto's looks, here is how they reacted:
