The Hats, Crowns, Halos and Veils of the Met Gala


Clearly, the unannounced theme this year was headgear.

There were plenty of eye-popping outfits on display at the Met Gala on Monday night. But this year, the most memorable (and meme-able) items weren’t the elaborate trains or intricately designed dresses. Instead, it was the wide variety of halos, crowns, hats and veils that won the red carpet.
