The Met Gala is one of the biggest fashion events of the year, encouraging a red carpet full of over-the-top and beautiful ensembles.
This year’s theme of “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & the Catholic Imagination” led to a wide range of fashion choices, from Rihanna dressing as the Pope to Migos decked in iconography.
Twitter, as expected, went into a frenzy over their favorite celebrities, and were particularly disappointed in Beyoncé’s absence. Check out the best fan reactions below.

It’s everything about Rihanna’s attitude in her Met Gala moment that takes it to another level. She is literally giving you THE POPE. Her aura literally says: “I am the Pope. I am the Vatican.” pic.twitter.com/bwH1JbMQki

This year’s #MetGala is all about the tiniest details, the tiniest references that really make the big impact. God, I’m living!
