This is as dramatic as it gets!

The fashion industry's top-billed event, the annual Met Gala, is an invitation-only fundraiser held for New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute.

The Gala, which is held on the first Monday of May, is also celebrating its 70th anniversary this year.

It is known for its outrageously innovative themes and, this year, the glamorous invitees were asked to celebrate Heavenly Bodies: Fashion And The Catholic Imagination.

This led to interesting, innovative fashion on the red carpet. Take a look:
