    From Blake Lively to Rihanna, a whole host of celebrities descended on New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art last night for this year’s Met Gala.

    The theme of the evening was ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ – meaning the majority of the guests chose to wear some sort of extravagant headpiece or gown adorned with some sort of religious symbolism.

    Sex and the City‘s Sarah Jessica Parker was no exception to the rule, her gown complete with an extreme train, but it was her headwear that captured the night’s theme down to a tee.

    What you may not have noticed is that, f you looked closely at the headband-slash-crown, you could see that it was in fact complete with an actual nativity scene inside.

    See for yourself below – Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, the gang’s all there.

    She wasn’t the only one to adorn a statement headpiece though, with the likes of Rihanna (who went dressed as the actual pope), Cara Delevingne and Rihanna also following suit.

    The actress’s gown (which was VERY Queen of Hearts) was designed by Dolce and Gabbana and offset with a winged, bright blue eyeshadow look.

    While SJP looked great, we’re thinking that nativity-filled headwear is reserved for the red carpet only – not our summer wardrobes…
