Fashion elites gathered at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York for the Met Gala 2018, one of the most anticipated event in the fashion calendar. 

The prestigious event aimed at raising funds to benefit the New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute saw  A-listers don in extravaganza outfits to meet the theme, "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Cathholic Imagination". 

Most stars did well in interpreting the theme while others failed dismally. As the host, Rihanna once again proved why she's considered one of the best dressed celebrities.

For the occasion;  Rihanna  channeled the grandeur of Catholic vestments with a cream bejeweled gown layered beneath a flowing overcoat from Maison Margiela. With designer  John Galliano ’s extreme design sensibility taking the idea of saintly dressing into artistic territory, the outfit went beyond the literal thanks to its exquisitely detailed construction, reported www.vogue.com

Here are more best dressed from the Met Gala 2018.
