Social media users couldn’t help but poke fun at the musical superstars lack of attendance by posting pictures of photographers taking photos of an empty red carpet, as other commentators shared memes of Kim Kardashian and Viola Davis’ upset.

Meanwhile, fans took it in their stride to joke about Rihanna’s papal-inspired look for the soiree with a steady stream of laugh out loud memes.

One user put a collage together of the Bajan beauty, who donned Maison Margiela by John Galliano, and former Pope Benedict XVI and captioned the shot: ‘When you have a meeting with The Pope at five, then the Met Gala red carpet at six’.

In another tweet, a commentator posted a side by side of Rihanna and the current Pope Francis holding his papal ferula which teasingly read: ‘These spot the difference games are getting harder’. 

Another mocked her for dressing like the Pope, sharing: ‘BREAKING: It’s being reported that the Pope has stepped down his role to make way for Rihanna. “She’s just too iconic” he said’.

However Rihanna wasn’t the only celebrity to fall victim to memes being created about their outfits, with the social media site being flooded with ‘spot the difference tweets’.

Kris’ mostly black outfit featured an elaborate gold, black, orange and red patterned turtleneck, with a similar motif round her waist and cuffs.

Below the waist, the dress was covered in a black feathery fluff and fell to the floor, and the ensemble featured sheer-sleeves.

Posting snaps alongside a wooden-dowel handled duster, one wrote: ‘When you gotta clean up the mess that Kanye has been making in the media,’ while another typed: ‘Kris Jenner is making these spot the differences really hard’. 

Another added: ‘Kris Jenner looking like the temple’s holiest feather duster’, in reference to the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination theme.  

The reference to Kanye comes after the rapper launched into a lenghty Twitter tirade last week in which he boasted about his brand Yeezy and hinted he wanted to run for president.

Kanye wrote: ‘You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.’ 

Kim apparently lambasted Kanye, as the rapper later tweeted: ‘my wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone.

‘I don’t agree with everything Trump does. I don’t agree 100% with anyone but myself.’

Kim went on to defend Kanye’s rant in a series of tweets which began: ‘To the media trying to demonize my husband let me just say this… your commentary on Kanye being erratic & his tweets being disturbing is actually scary. So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair.’

She was upset about the previous stories published in regard to Kanye’s mental health being called into question.

The reality star continued: ‘He’s a free thinker, is that not allowed in America? Because some of his ideas differ from yours you have to throw in the mental health card? That’s just not fair. He’s actually out of the sunken place when he’s being himself which is very expressive.’ 

Poking fun: Kim Kardashian was also teased over her gold dress, with one Twitter user comparing it to a golden Chalice

This year it will examine ‘fashion’s ongoing engagement with the devotional practices and traditions of Catholicism.’

The exhibition combines works of fashion with works of religious art, including 50 ecclesiastical masterworks on loan from the Sistine Chapel sacristy at the Vatican.

Those items, which will be on view in the Anna Wintour Costume Center galleries, include papal vestments and accessories, such as rings and tiaras, from the 18th to the early 21st century, the museum said. The items encompass more than 15 papacies.

The event came in the midst of her ‘Becky’ drama, in which she hinted on her Lemonade album that husband Jay Z had cheated, and hot on the heels of the lyrics: ‘I can wear her skin over mine. Her hair over mine. Her hands as gloves. Her teeth as confetti’, many speculated the dress was supposed to signify ‘Becky’s’ skin

Missed the mark: Kris Jenner’s bold ensemble was widely-panned, with the Eighties-inspired shoulder pads and huge waist belt meaning she was lost in the gown. Lucky magazine editor-in-chief Eva Chen said at the time: ‘The fit of dress was not good on her.

2014: Charles James: Beyond Fashion

Most memorable ensemble: The red carpet was indisputably stolen by Sarah Jessica Parker’s Oscar de la Renta masterpiece, which saw the Sex And The City legend’s famously petite frame exquisitely clad in a perfectly cut black bustier trimmed with acres of monochrome skirt and a checked train – with the gown rounded out with the late designer’s signature drawn out in a delicate red scribble

Missed the mark: Lena Dunham’s Giambattista Valli Couture dress was deemed ‘too cocktail’ for an event as decadent the Met Gala. The mullet-hemmed dress appeared to clash with her smokey eye and choppy bob due to its frothy style contrasting against her cutting edge beauty regimen

Theme: The wildly popular exhibit acted as a homage to the punk movement and illustrate how the era impacted on the fashion industry.

A stand-out piece featured was the legendary Gianni Versace safety-pin dress worn by Elizabeth Hurley in 1994

Dress code: The clue was in the name for the year’s dress code – with some stars taking Punk too literally and others barely giving a nod to the look at all

Most memorable ensemble: Again, Sarah Jessica Parker stole the crown when she trod the red carpet while rocking a mohawk hat designed by milliner Philip Treacy. Speaking of that particular night, she said: ‘Me, literally sitting on the floor of the car in order to accommodate my Mohawk was pretty freaking amusing’. She perfected the look with her edgy Giles Deacon gown

Missed the mark: While she stayed true to the theme, Madonna’s 2013 Met Gala look was veering on the side of fancy dress as she dressed up in a choppy black wig, a blazer, no trousers, suspenders and staggering pink heels. The Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci look was extremely divisive yet in true Madonna-style – widely-discussed
