With the theme of Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, Hollywood’s best and brightest stars showed up on the red carpet of this year’s Met Gala wearing some of the most beautiful and interesting pieces we’ve ever seen. Of course, with the theme mentioning Catholicism, many designers chose to pay homage to religious icons and items. (After all, what is more of a heavenly body than Jesus Christ, amirite?)

Inspired by a couple of Twitter posts that pointed the Catholic icons used as a reference by some of the designs, we tried to point out as much reference as we can from the red carpet. Read on to see which design used what reference, at least as much as our Catholic-school educated eye could identify.
