One can always count on the annual Met Gala to be a showcase of the most astonishing, opulent and sometimes controversial celebrity looks. Since the ’70s, each edition of the fundraiser has carried a theme based on that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, which offers much bandwidth for attendees to get creative with their dressing.

For 2018, the theme is Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination — prompting many of Tinseltown’s brightest stars to turn up in ensembles inspired by or incorporated with religious imagery the likes of crucifixes, halos and angel wings. These were, of course, accentuated with equally splendid jewels that ranged from flashy crowns to intricate headpieces and elegant brooches. Scroll down for our guide to the most impressive and absolutely divine jewellery looks at the Met Gala 2018.
