From outfits inspired by the pope to full-on angel wings, A-listers attending fashion's biggest night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday certainly didn't disappoint with their interpretations of the "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination" theme.
But the fierce and fabulous ensembles didn't stop once the star-studded ball wrapped, as plenty of celebrities continued to party the night away in the Big Apple. Now, ET's breaking down some of the best Met Gala after-party looks that need to be seen.
After looking like a golden goddess on the red carpet in a custom Versace number, Kim Kardashian West stayed loyal to the brand the rest of the evening. For a swanky after-party, the mother of three rocked another head-turning piece that resembled the iconic outfit Donatella Versace designed with her now-late brother, Gianni, that she wore to Vogue magazine’s 100th anniversary party in 1993. A replication of the ensemble was recently featured in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.
No one could take their eyes off Rihanna earlier in the night, when she stepped out in a pearl-and-crystal embellished Margiela Artisanal gown by John Galliano and a matching mitre headpiece. She continued to be the center of attention, later changing into a cozy, cotton set paired with metallic shoes and statement necklaces.
Blake Lively stunned in a beaded Atelier Versace gown and chic updo for the red carpet, later letting her curly blonde locks down to attend a stylish after-party. She kept the fab vibes going, sporting a sparkly plaid mini skirt with matching thigh-high boots -- while still showing off her elaborate manicure!
Jennifer Lopez, who wowed in Balmain earlier in the night, chose a minidress that featured similar colors to Lively's outfit for a party she attended with her beau, Alex Rodriguez. She styled the frock with a feathered black coat, scarlet Jimmy Choo pumps and silver hoop earrings, undoubtedly turning heads as photographers snapped her pic.
After wearing Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh pants while walking the red carpet, Kendall Jenner changed into a bodyhugging dress by the same designer for her nighttime festivities. She kept the religious theme going, as the piece featured angel print from top to bottom, similar to the design on the Vera Wang gown that Ariana Grande wore to the ball.
When it comes to fashion, Amal Clooney can do no wrong! She turned heads in a gorgeous outfit designed by British designer Richard Quinn on the red carpet, and again in a red mosaic dress while partying the night away with her husband, George Clooney.
Paris Jackson looked like a glam rock star in a bedazzled black-and-silver mini dress emblazoned with a bright red lighting bolt. She completed the edgy look with aviator sunglasses, a blue bandana and over-the-knee Giuseppe Zanotti boots... a dramatic change from the burnt orange Stella McCartney dress she wore earlier at the Met.
