Heavenly bodies descend for Met Gala

Kim Kardashian was dressed by Versace for the 2018 Met on Monday, and boy was she a sight for sore eyes.

The 59-year-old mother of six balanced a golden crown studded with crucifixes on her head, shrouded her face in a black fishnet mantilla and donned a very flouncy, very full and very black gown.

Katy Perry rose to the occasion of the night's theme challenge with larger-than-life feathered angel wings, metallic boots and dress by Versace. Rita Ora's dreamy train trailed down the iconic steps of the Met as photographers frantically snapped pictures of her elaborate black headdress paired with a black Prada gown in layers a sheer fabric.

Sarah Jessica Parker, a doyenne of NY high society and the Sex and the City fashionista, walked the red carpet in full-length gold brocade by Dolce and Gabbana and an astonishing head piece. In 2017, the Met Gala raised more than $12 million (£8.8m).

Janelle Monae walked the carpet with designer Marc Jacobs, who crafted her striking black and white-striped custom skirt suit. One of the hostesses of the evening was the wife of George Clooney, lawyer Amal Clooney. The ensemble, from designer Richard Quinn, made a crinkling sound all the way the Met's iconic steps. "I'm the flower on the side", he joked to reporters. This year's co-chairs include Vogue's Anna Wintour, Rihanna and Donatella Versace. It seems the youngest Hadid sister was just getting started, as mere hours later, she turned up at the after-parties in a second curvaceous look, this time made from leather.

"But there was widespread rage towards her from PC-crazed liberals across America, and it's the inconsistent and hypocritical LACK of widespread rage from PC-crazed liberals across America about last night's Met Gala that ironically makes me angry".

"It feels overwhelmingly wonderful, but not as overwhelming as I thought it was going to be", the 21-year-old gushed about her night out with Sprouse, who she was spotted kissing in Paris last month.
