Here are the best behind-the-scenes Met Gala celebrity Instagrams

Arguably the most highly anticipated - not to mention avant-garde - sartorial event of the season, the Met Gala never fails to capture the public consciousness. And this year's theme, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, was no different. From bedazzled headpieces to spectacular trains, and all sorts of crowns, crosses, and wings, 2018's annual funding party for New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art was packed with over-the-top ensembles which fused high-fashion and religion.
And now that we've seen pictures of Rihanna's epic Margiela papal crown and cape, and Blake Lively's custom Versace gown (which she paired with over $2 million worth of Lorraine Schwartz jewellery), many of us want to see what went into the making of these sacred looks. Here are eight of the best behind-the-scenes celebrity Instagrams...

Well, there you have it. The event of the season takes a lot of prep, and aren't we glad that we spent it at home, on the sofa, binge-watching Netflix?
