As usual, the Met Gala red carpet did not disappoint (except for the whole "no Beyoncé" thing, of course). Stars absolutely glowed while getting into the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination theme — from Rihanna's dazzling Pope-inspired ensemble to Zendaya's armored,\ Joan of Arc look.
And also as usual, fans did not disappoint with their commentary, comparisons, and hilarious meme reactions to the night's most fascinating styles. First and foremost, Kris Jenner gave Keeping Up With the Kardashians fans a more recent version of her infamous meme, "You're doing amazing, sweetie."
What can we say? Same hair, same Kris.

Zendaya fans were also quick to juxtapose The Greatest Showman star alongside Joan of Arc, the French heroine who inspired Z's all-gray look.

Others were quick to notice how similar the red carpet looked to an average day on set of A Young Pope. Many fans tweeted out reactionary GIFs of Jude Law from the series, either judging other peoples' outfits or walking the carpet himself. "Can we just call the #metgala what it clearly is, which is YOUNG POPE COSPLAY," one fan tweeted.

Others poked fun at why Beyoncé didn't show up in the first place. After all, she's already rocked the theme. She doesn't need to rehash it!

Yikes — Shailene Woodley's clunky outfit reminded one Twitter user of Lord Farquaad from Shrek. And not gonna lie, with those thick bangs, it's not difficult to see the resemblance.

Bey's not the only whose already done — and consequently slayed — the whole Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination theme. Lady Gaga's been there, done that, too.

Until fans finally realized, Gaga and Queen Bey were there after all with the most imaginative and impressive costumes of all: invisibility!

"Lady Gaga and Beyoncé attend the #MetGala as Holy Spirit," a user tweeted. Best look of the night!
