Last night was the Met Gala 2018, a surreal crossover of celebrities, art, and fashion that celebrates the opening of the Met Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibition. This year's theme "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination", was left up to the interpretation of the attendees with various results.

Without a doubt, the winner of this year's Met Gala was Rihanna. The OG badgal subverted the entire history of Catholicism by turning up as the female pope, courtesy of a heavily embellished dress and papal-inspired headgear from Maison Margiela.

As with most events that intersect famous people, the public eye and camera phones, the memes have been rolling in all night. We've compiled some of the freshest takes from the savvy users of Twitter and Instagram below.
