This year's Met Gala red carpet will be heavenly.

After the host of the annual Costume Institute Gala, Anna Wintour, announced that "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination" would be the theme of this year's extravagant affair, we instantly thought of bridal wear (as well as angel wings). Not only does the theme call for a celebration of the Catholic tradition, but celebrities have been wearing wedding gowns on the red carpet throughout award season.

From Rihanna's draped dress at the Cannes Film Festival to Cardi B's Mohammed Ashi dress at the Grammys—white is the color to wear right now.

The Best Met Gala Looks Ever

Before we swoon over Monday evening's high-anticipated event, we're taking a look back at Hollywood's greatest weddings from our favorite movies and films that we're have inspired celebrities and their stylists for this unique red carpet.

Check out the best dresses below!

Downton Abbey

This vintage, flapper-inspired gown would add a glamorous touch to the red carpet.

Grey's Anatomy

Chandra Wilson's wedding dress would be beautiful on the stairs of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Boy Meets World

This off-shoulder silhouette is a modern twist on a classic dress.

Funny Girl

Elaborate lace fabrics, floral crowns, veils—Barbra Streisand in Irene Scharaff is a preview of what's to come.

Moulin Rouge

Nicole Kidman's Catherine Martin and Angus Strathie costume from the movie comes with a headdress made for the red carpet. 

Coming to America

It doesn't have to be white! Actress Shari Headley's Deborah Landis design is a twist on the tradition that worthy of the event.

Sex and the City

Maybe Sarah Jessica Parker, who will be in attendance this year, should channel Carrie Bradshaw's Vivienne Westwood sensation again for the red carpet.

Father of the Bride

Elizabeth Taylor's collared gown is a classic.

Catching Fire

Could you imagine if someone actually lit their dress on fire? It would be amazing, but also dangerous. So we may want to leave this trick to Jennifer Lawrence.


This Trisha Biggar design may be over the top for simple wedding, but it's perfect for this year's Met Gala. 

Fifty Shades Freed

Dakota Johnson's Monique Lhuillier dress is stunning in its classic silhouette and lace.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding

If there was ever a time so be over-the-top, it's the Met Gala and Nia Vardalos' Michael Clancy wedding dress would fit in perfectly.
