Stars reveal sexy Met Gala outfits at home

There is no bigger day on the fashion calendar than the annual Met Gala - the $US30,000-a-head hot-ticket ball, thrown by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

After the indefinite postponement of this year's event, originally scheduled to be held in New York today (as it is every year, on the first Monday in May), it is being mourned online.

Pregnant singer Katy Perry - who last year dressed as a human chandelier in a bejewelled Moschino dress - revealed what she would have worn … and it did not disappoint.

Perry, 35, was planning on sporting a Jean Paul Gaultier design, complete with a cone-shaped bra in an apparent tribute to Madonna.

Of course, the outfit was perfectly tied into this year's theme, About Time: Fashion and Duration.

Perry's outfit was a modern take on Madonna's Blonde Ambition tour costume circa 1983, and featured a baby bump-shaped harness and matching brassiere.

She captioned the image, "what would have been … #TheMetBall2020".
