Met Gala 2018: Katy Perry arrives at Met Gala in HUGE feathered wings and gold mini dress and thigh high boots

She’s never shied away from a bold look.

And Katy Perry didn’t hold back while gracing Monday night’s Met Costume Gala in New York, where she commanded attention with giant feather wings and a short gold dress by Versace.

But the American Idol judge, 33, almost didn’t make it to the affair celebrating the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination exhibit, nearly missing the festivities after her classic car stalled en route to the soiree, according to TMZ.

Apparently the starlet’s vintage Rolls Royce stalled out about a block away from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Video of the incident shows Katy’s driver trying to get the car started several times before getting the ignition to catch.

 

While waiting, Perry stood up in the backseat of the car as a stylish did some last minute primping with a handy lint-roller.

After a few nervous moments, however, the car got started again, according to people who witnessed the incident firsthand.

Vogue explained why Katy opted for her vintage wheels on their Instagram, writing: ‘@katyperry couldn’t take a normal car to the #metgala due to her stunning wingspan.

‘So she rode in a vintage convertible, giving her nearly six-foot feathered accessories room to flutter. Thankfully the Met’s halls are just as accommodating.’

Though there were a few hiccups before arriving, Katy stepped out of her ride with radiant eight-foot tall wings upon her back.

The starlet, who started her career as a Christian gospel singer, looked like a vision as she surrounded herself with champagne colored feathers, anchored into an elegant gold beaded trim across her shoulders.

Turning around, the full artistry of the hand-crafted wings was put front and center.
