Katy Perry Almost Didn't Grace The Met Gala With Her Presence

Kim Kardashian's Met Gala Dress

Kim Kardashian's Met Gala Dress

As the world's most recognizable faces take boundary pushing risks with their looks, results range from the dramatic to the kind of "can't believe it" magic that calls for a collective intake of breath.

The LBD featured a woven bra, with five gold buckled straps extending down from a thick black collar.

This year's theme "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination" was met with controversy, but the curator of the Costume Institute Andrew Bolton said "dress is fundamental to any discussion about religion".

Earlier in the night, Kim repped Versace once more, wearing a form-fitting gown that looked like liquid gold.

Kim made a late appearance at the gala, and walked the red carpet alone for the second year running as Kanye West stayed at home.

Kim's glam was on point too; the reality star opted for a super sleek half-up half-down 'do (yup, we're getting total Ariana Grande vibes) and a heavy smoky eye.

The rapper has been causing controversy in recent weeks, with tweets in support of controversial US president Donald Trump and his remark that "slavery was a choice".

The dazzling dress shows off Kardashian's famous curves to perfection and will no doubt be copied countless times post-Met Gala by Kardashian's legion of fans at their very own special red carpet events (think: high school proms and dances).
