The Most Hilarious Internet Memes from the 2018 Met Gala
Fashion and The Catholic Imagination was the theme of this year’s Met Gala, but what really won was the Internet and Its Collective Imagination. But honestly, all of these memes wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for the incredible, one of a kind ~lewks~ from the 2018 Met Gala.
We have to immediately and without hesitation start off this list of memes with our new Pope, Rihanna. Not did her look SLAY the theme, but it spawned many a magnificent meme about Pope Francis needing a new job, or knocking the Pope over, but this one is our personal fave from twitter user @uuiigii:

It just captures everything so brilliantly — wigs being snatched, our new Ri-legion and just totally encapsulates what makes a good met gala meme.
Cardi B looked freaking awesome in her celestial get up, but fans immediately noticed the similarity between her bejeweled pregnant belly and Beyonce‘s back at the 2017 Grammys. Although we don’t agree with what this meme literally says, it’s too funny not to acknowledge.
Kim Kardashian looked absolutely stellar, but some of us were a little confused by what she was wearing aside from just gold gorgeousness and good makeup. Luckily, we weren’t alone in this. One Twitter user posted this photo side by side of Kim and this chalice and HOLY crap she came as the Holy Grail! Good enough to drink out of.

Thankfully KKW’s momager Kris Jenner was there to capture her stunning daughter’s Met Gala look and fortunately provided us with an UPDATED you’re doing amazing sweetie meme.

Katy Perry‘s wings were actually INCREDIBLE and looked a little unwieldy, but Elana Fishman provided us with this excellent glow up meme of Katy Perry freshman vs. senior year.

And last but not least, how could we neglect to mention Beyoncé’s seriously phantasmal look? The Beyhive positively swooned over their queen coming to the Met Gala as none other than the Holy Ghost herself.
Beyoncé arriving as the Holy Ghost.
