  • Beyonce at the 2017 Grammys

    Beyonce channeled Madonna (the Virgin Mary, not the singer) while performing in an elaborate gold ensemble at the 2017 Grammy Awards.

    The singer paired her sheer, bedazzled gown, which was artfully draped over her very pronounced baby bump, with a golden, Halo-inspired crown reminiscent of a Byzantine-era religious artwork.

    The biggest difference in Bey’s performance, however, was her replacement of patriarchal imagery — male apostles, prophets, saviors, etc. — with images of herself, her mother, Tina Lawson, and her daughter, Blue Ivy.

    Nicki Minaj made quite the fashion statement at the Grammy Awards in 2012, when she arrived in a red silk hooded Versace gown reminiscent of a religious robe. She further drove home her controversial sartorial point by stepping out arm-in-arm with a man dressed as a pope.

      Katy Perry at the 2013 Met Gala

    Stephen Lovekin/FilmMagicKaty Perry looked to Dolce & Gabbana’s fall 2013 collection, which re-imagined the golden mosaics of Sicily’s Cathedral of Monreale, for her 2013 Met Gala ensemble.

    Perry, who grew up in a Christian household, stood out in a fully beaded and embellished dress that featured a bedazzled religious figure along the torso. According to the pop star, she picked the flashy dress to coincide with that year’s “Punk: Chaos to Couture” theme. “I looked at it and I thought to myself, ‘Oh if I wore this, I feel like I would be the original punk, like a Joan of Arc,” she said at the time. She also paired her outfit with a gold crown and crucifix earrings.

    Looks like this outfit could fit well with this year’s Met Gala theme, too.
