Ecclesiastical: Here’s a Round Up of This Year’s Met Gala Looks
The Met Gala is arguably one of the biggest fashion events of the year, and this year’s outfits did not disappoint. Incorporating the theme Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, the Met was turned into a sea of crowns, crosses, wings and Halos. From structural and intricate Haute Couture looks to flowing gowns inspired by the decadence and opulence of the Church, these are the standout looks of the night.

Diane Kruger opted for a petite robins egg Prabal Gurung dress juxtaposed by an enormous flowing train paired with Tasaki jewelry and an impossibly chic Philip Treacy x Tasaki headpiece.
Darren Criss opted for a glitzy printed Dolce and Gabanna ensemble.
Kate Bosworth recreated her bridal look for the Met red carpet donning an angelic, white Oscar de la Renta ballgown flecked in gold, and accessorized with a mantilla veil-meets-capelet trimmed in a decadent row of beading.
