Our fashion contributor Mosha Lundström Halbert joins us live from New York to give us a roundup of the biggest night in fashion, the Met Gala. Every year, the Met Gala marks the opening of the new fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute, which is part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This year, the exhibit is called Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, centred around the connection between fashion and religion. Last night, A-list celebrities and VIPs walked the red carpet and dressed up to match that theme. Lundström Halbert tells us who turned the most heads last night and why this is such a big event, every year. See some highlights from the red carpet below.

Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination is now on at the Metropolitan Museum of Art until Monday, October 8.
