With halos and Pope-inspired dresses, the Met Gala 2018 red carpet saw Indian actresses Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone making a statement in their very own ensembles in sync with the “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” theme.
Priyanka, who made her debut internationally with the American drama series “Quantico”, opted for a wine red strapless Ralph Lauren gown with a billowing train paired with an embellished gold chain headdress reminiscent of a medieval knight. She completed her look with subtle make-up and maroon lips.
Deepika, who made her debut at the Met Gala last year, sported a red draped gown with a thigh high slit. Her ensemble was designed by Prabal Gurung. She accessorised her look with towering red heels.
Held at the The Metropolitan Museum of Art , this year’s gala saw elaborate theme-based fashion with Rihanna, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B, Lana Del Rey, Rita Ora, Uma Thurman and Madonna, making a statement.
The hosts for the evening were Rihanna, Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace.
The annual event is the invitation-only fundraiser to benefit the New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.
