HOUSTON - Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander’s wife, supermodel Kate Upton channeled the look of a nun -- a bedazzled one -- at the 2018 Met Gala in New York Monday night.

The look was a glam take on this year's theme: "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination." The event is a benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute.

Upton wore a forest green gown with tie at the waist and jeweled headdress that connected to her gown. Her shoes matched the headdress's jeweled motif.

The gala, which is annually held on the first Monday in May, was hosted by Rihanna, Amal Clooney, Donatella Versace, Anna Wintour and Stephen and Christine Schwarzman.

Upton shared photos of her completed look and shoes on Instagram.
