The biggest night of fashion was missing one of the biggest stars in the world, but you may not have recognized it when scrolling through Twitter. Although she was absent, Beyoncé was the best meme of the 2018 Met Gala. It was even better that the meme captured the theme of this year's Met Gala, which was "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination." Seriously, it's worth bowing to Queen Bey and saying a little prayer for this divine meme.
The joke was simple, but definitely heavenly. When the fans realized that they did not get access to Biblical proportions from Beyoncé, they created one for them. "Beyoncé arriving as the Holy Spirit", @ ChenelynMercad0 tweeted . "Stunniiiiiiiiiiiii!" Of course, the picture they tweeted was just an empty red carpet, Beyoncé nowhere to be seen. Therefore, she is a spirit of the holiest kind.
From then on, it did not take long for others to jump on the "Beyoncé as Holy Spirit" -Mem. "So Beyoncé finally came to the Met Gala" @nycyonce tweeted "As the Holy Spirit." In the meantime @ lindophiri05 tweeted "Beyoncé has apparently arrived as a holy spirit. We see you, sis. And we live." But it was probably actor Amber Tamblyn, who said it best : "Beyoncé comes to # MetGala2018 as a sacred apparition, everyone else can go home now, you've all lost." Others have just posted shots of the empty red carpet with photographers set up to see Beyoncé's perfect shot, which tweeted as @DRIPPINSWAGU still gave "serving looks" despite the invisibility. Let's face it, if there is someone who could do it, it would be them.
It is therefore not surprising that, despite the absence, there were still some who, like Tamblyn, thought they were best dressed at the 2018 Met Gala.
@TheYonceNews Joked BEYONCÉ KILLS TODAY ON THE RED CARPET. "Sure, it's funny, but serious, everyone knows that Beyoncé would have killed it if she did turn up in the end, the worst being that Beyoncé canceled at the last minute on the Met Gala to go on a surprise vacation with JAY-Z
Entertainment Tonight reported that it was a surprise trip to "relax before their tour." You know, the couple's tour together On The Run II begins in June, not to mention that after her record-breaking performance with Coachella, forever known as #Beychella, she might need a break.
Like the world, the Met Gala is another thing ours She became known for her breathtaking looks, such as Givenchy's 2016 peach latex by Riccardo Tisci, the year before Beyoncé was late for the Met Gala in a bejeweled transparent gown by Gi venchy appeared, which left little room for imagination. Of course, people were paying attention. Especially since this year, after Solingen and JAY-Z had their famous lift fight at the Met Gala 2014, something that Bey would rather forget. Still, most people still remember their gaze from that infamous night: a simple black Givenchy dress with a birdcage veil.
While Givenchy seemed to be her designer of choice for the Met Gala, Beyoncé had allegedly chosen a tailor-made DUNDAS dress for this year's event. According to ET the former creative director of Roberto Cavalli had "worked on the creation for weeks". Peter Dundas previously designed Beyoncé's gold dresses for 2017, which were perfect – and as some emphasized on Twitter, very much on this year's Met theme . Now fans can only imagine what the Met Gala look looked like, just like this meme.
Beyoncé did not adorn the Met Gala 2018 with her presence, but her image has still won the night. This is Beyoncé's otherworldly power. Amen about it.
