Here Are All The Pics You May Have Missed From The Met Gala

Met Gala, Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart

On Monday night, New York City was overrun by celebs who skipped church on Sunday and made up for it on Monday. The annual Met Gala, also known as the biggest night in fashion, took place with this year’s theme, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, inspiring saintly looks that played with religion.

New couples made their red carpet debuts, including Riverdale co-stars Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart, pop star Shawn Mendes and model Hailey Baldwin, and Tesla CEO Elon Musk and musician Grimes. Fashion favourites made their return to the Met Gala, including Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna, who always stays on theme and on fire.

Even though religion played a huge part in this year’s Met Gala, that didn’t stop the A-list guest list from showing some skin and partying behind the scenes at the annual event. Thankfully, there are the pictures to prove it. Here are the behind the scenes snaps you may have missed from the 2018 Met Gala.


Shawn Mendes and rumored girlfriend Hailey Baldwin made things Met Gala official by walking the carpet together.
