Jared Leto was compared to Jesus for his Met Gala look as he was pictured alongside Lana Del Rey on the red carpet.

The singer and actor wore a blue Gucci suit with navy lapels, as well as a pink shirt and a golden headpiece.

Leto topped it off with his trademark long hair and a floral brocade – a fitting look for the gala, which this year had a theme exploring the relationship between religion and fashion.

The striking ensemble led fans on Twitter to compare him to Jesus.

Meanwhile, Del Rey wore a halo sprouting wings on her head while a gold heart on her chest had several knives sticking out of it.

The singer also held a wand to go with her white Gucci dress.

The pair were joined at the gala by Gucci designer Alessandro Michele.
