For the fashion-obsessed, the Met Gala is like Christmas in May. And this year, the fashion was a bounty of gift after gift after outrageously lavish gift.

These year's theme for The Costume Institute Benefit (a.k.a. the Met Gala because it's held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City), was "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination." And the multitude of A-list celebrities who graced its red carpet spared no expense to bring the dramatic theme to life on Monday night's red carpet.

The extravaganza was co-chaired by Rihanna, Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace, alongside Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. Madonna was confirmed to perform at the event - fitting, no? We could go on but you probably just want to see all the exquisite looks, so without further ado ... Merry Christmas, style lovers!
