Ever since Rihanna turned up to the CFDA Awards wearing nothing but netting and glitter, there’s been something of a nudity arms race between pop stars desperate to out-raunch each other.

But who could have predicted that mother-of-one, Obama-supporting Beyoncé would have outdone the likes of Miley and even Kim Kardashian when she took to the Met Gala 2015 with nothing but a sprinkling of jewel embellishments to cover her modesty?

The “Love On Top” singer certainly turned heads in the revealing number:

Rihanna attracted attention for an altogether different reason - she’d attended the event in New York dressed as an omelette:

Meanwhile, Beyoncé’s sister Solange channelled her inner space oyster in this:

While Miley looked reserved and sophisticated in this:

Kim Kardashian “dressed sexy”, as per approved by Kanye West, the yes man for all her wardrobe choices:

But her outfit had nothing, it seems, to do with the theme of the evening’s event, China: Through the Looking Glass.

In other Met Gala news, Jason Derulo's epic fall down the stairs was one of the most talked about events of the evening.

Except for one thing - it didn't actually happen. Here's what really did.
