Celebrities and major designers flock to the red carpet each year on the first Monday in May to attend the Met Gala fundraiser for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York City and to mark the opening of the museum's latest fashion exhibition. This year’s gala, co-chaired by Amal Clooney, Rihanna and Donatella Versace, celebrated the “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination," exhibition, which also inspired the dress code of attendees' wardrobe.
