Many celebrities and notable personalities flocked to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York for this year’s Met Gala. With the theme “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” this year saw a lot of church-inspired dresses, headpieces, and looks that will make you say “Amen.”

They also turned Zendaya into a badass dragon-slayer that looks like a character straight out of a Netflix series/film or a video game.

But let’s not forget Sarah Jessica Parker, the queen of following the theme, is always so “extra” with her headpieces.

But as these celebs walked down the red carpet, some just didn’t make the cut from the list of these “fashion judges.”
