Rihanna stole the show at the Met Gala, turning heads by channelling the Pope for her red carpet outfit.

This year’s event had a religious theme and the Umbrella singer made the most of the dress code, wearing a diamond-encrusted papal-inspired outfit complete with a mitre-style hat.

Rihanna was joined on the red carpet by her co-chair for the evening, Amal Clooney, who arrived with her husband, George.

Amal, a human rights lawyer, wore a rose-patterned skirt and trousers designed by British designer Richard Quinn.

Kim Kardashian-West attended the event, in New York City, alone, as her rapper husband Kanye West was nowhere to be seen.

She wore a figure-hugging gold dress by Versace.

In a nod to the theme of the night, the dress was embroidered with crosses on the hips and torso.

One of the more head-turning outfits of the night belonged to Katy Perry, who walked the red carpet wearing a giant pair of angel wings.

The bizarre feathered accessories were so big that Perry was seen knocking someone over when she walked past them.

The wings were teamed with a gold Versace gown with matching thigh-high boots.

The singer’s dress was emblazoned with a cross.

Madonna has long been known for her bold fashion choices.

The theme of this year’s Met Gala was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination – and the singer fit in perfectly.

The Material Girl wore a black Jean Paul Gaultier gown, with a black net veil – all topped off by a crown of jewelled crosses.
