THE stars who turned out at last night’s Met Gala embraced the religious theme to the extreme.
Katy Perry wore massive angel wings, Rihanna wore a papal mitre and Cara Delevingne wore a beaded veil that covered her face.

But Selena Gomez 2018 Met Gala look carried a much more subtle message that any but the most eagle-eyed would have missed.
The 25-year-old singer, who was styled by Coach, wore a ruffled gown with silk gauze and hand-pleated frills, and carried a small cream handbag.
And the message was in the detail of the bag which, according to Coach, was “finished with a personal touch from Ms. Gomez.”
A close up of the bag on the brand’s Instagram page revealed an embroidered message which read: “A woman who fears the lord is a woman who shall be praised.”

The quote is a Bible verse taken from Proverbs, and was chosen by the star herself.
There was another Bible quote on the ribbon of her dress, but it was unreadable on the Instagram pic.
It’s not the first time the star has used the Met red carpet to give out a positive message.
Last year her bag read: “Love yourself first.”

Coach’s creative director Stuart Vevers told Vogue: “The starting point when I work with Selena is always Selena.
“She has such an effortless sense of style, and we wanted to evoke that graceful and easy feeling.”
