Blessed as Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, the 2018 Met Gala was designed, as per Vogue, "to create a dialogue between fashion and the masterworks of religious art in the museum’s holdings."
Many celebrities got really creative and owned the gala with their eccentric looks such as Ariana Grande, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, and Katy Perry. Other celebrities, although always favorite at red carpets, underwhelmed their fans. These included Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, and, Selena Gomez, who all seemed to play it safe with simple looks.
Ahead of the gala, Gomez took over Coach's Instagram stories and expressed her excitement. "I can't wait for you to see my dress, it's so pretty, it's my favorite," she said. "I will explain more on my Instagram." In a nutshell, she never explained anything on her profile, but it did seem as if she had a great time with her date, Coach's Creative Director, Stuart Vevers.

Despite the 25-year-old actress and singer looking like a magical angel in her cream Coach gown, people on the internet did no stay quiet about her makeup, tan, and overall look, which to some, was a complete fail.

In a red carpet interview with Vogue, Gomez opened up about her dress and what it represented: "The theme of the dress, I wanted it to kind of capture Queen Esther in the Bible. I admire her strength and I think that's what I wanted it to feel like," she said.
