Last night saw A-listers from the worlds of fashion, film, music, politics and more come together to celebrate the annual fashion exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The Costume Institute Gala (Met Gala) is hosted by Vogue editor Anna Wintour, and last night's party celebrated the opening of "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination", and that was the theme on the red carpet.

From capes aplenty to giant wings and ornate hats, last night's Met Gala fashion did not disappoint. Scroll through the gallery above for 34 must-see looks: some out-there, some paired-back - we're looking at you Kim Kardashian - and some plain papal, i.e. Rihanna.
