Celebrities may “dread” the Met Gala, but Twitter loves it for its meme potential. After all, how many times a year do you get this many over-the-top celebrities together in one room, all attempting to adhere to the same costume theme? And with a theme like “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” things were bound to get hilariously messy from the very beginning.
We may not have gotten Rihanna in the Popemobile or Leonardo DiCaprio and the Pussy Posse dressed as the Seven Deadly Sins, but we did get an update to the internet’s favorite Kardashian meme: Kris Jenner’s “You’re doing amazing, sweetie.” And as for Beyoncé’s arrival as the Holy Ghost? As one Twitter user put it, “Stunniiiiiiiiiiiiiing!”
