Katy Perry descended upon the Met Gala red carpet looking like a literal angel, but after having to enter the hallowed halls of the Metropolitan Museum of Art by turning sideways, she retired her wings for the evening. 

You can't totally blame her for wanting to take off her larger-than-life wings for the main event. Her wingspan was so large that she couldn't fit in a car, so had to arrive at the event in a convertible. One can only imagine what it would have been like for her to sit down for dinner, the wings were taller than her, after all.

However, losing her wings didn't stop her from looking gorgeous in her gold Versace mini dress. The singer posed and shared a few good laughs with Kim Kardashian West, who also wowed in a gold Versace number, during cocktail hour.

While Perry isn't regularly seen in the KarJenner circle, she and Kim go way back. Kim is a noted Perry fan. Late last year she took her daughter North to her concert along with older sister Kourtney Kardashain and her daughter Penelope.
