Near miss: Katy Perry narrowly avoided a red carpet disaster as she arrived at the Met Gala in a huge feathered angel wings on Monday night

While Jamie, who is nearly five months pregnant, opened her mouth in horror, Katy seemed completely oblivious she had hit her pal as she focused all her efforts into posing in the extravagant outfit.

Ever the true professional, Jamie dodged out of the way following the hit, allowing the California Girls hitmaker to take centre stage.  

The blunder, which was captured on the E! News livestream was spotted by viewers, with some taking to Twitter to comment on the painful-looking blow.

Katy commanded attention in the celestial wings and a short gold dress by Versace. 

The American Idol judge almost didn’t make it to the affair celebrating the Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination exhibit, nearly missing the festivities after her classic car stalled en route to the soiree, according to TMZ.

Apparently the starlet’s vintage Rolls Royce stalled out about a block away from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Video of the incident shows Katy’s driver trying to get the car started several times before getting the ignition to catch.

While waiting, Perry stood up in the backseat of the car as a stylish did some last minute primping with a handy lint-roller. 

After a few nervous moments, however, the car got started again, according to people who witnessed the incident firsthand.

‘So she rode in a vintage convertible, giving her nearly six-foot feathered accessories room to flutter. Thankfully the Met’s halls are just as accommodating.’

Though there were a few hiccups before arriving, Katy stepped out of her ride with radiant eight-foot tall wings upon her back.

The starlet, who started her career as a Christian gospel singer, looked like a vision as she surrounded herself with champagne colored feathers, anchored into an elegant gold beaded trim across her shoulders.

In 2017, she was co-chair of the Vogue-sponsored affair along with Pharrell Williams, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, model Gisele Bundchen, and as always Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

This year’s theme is Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, following last year’s Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between and 2016’s Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology.

Stars at the event spend the evening treading between three locations within the spectacular setting, as the exhibition spreads between the Anna Wintour Costume Center, the medieval galleries at the main location, and at the Cloisters, uptown.

The theme is being considered the most controversial to date, due to the fact the fashion garments being put on display are sitting alongside ancient, sacred artifacts.

Curator Andrew Bolton, defended the display, saying: ‘Some might consider fashion to be an unfitting or unseemly medium by which to engage with ideas about the sacred or the divine, but dress is central to any discussion about religion.’

Dress code: The event called for ‘avant-garde’, leading to what Vogue described as a ‘wonderfully dichotomous’ red carpet display 

Most memorable ensemble: Rihanna’s typically wild ensemble was a particular stand-out look, as she trod the famed stairs before the venue in a sculptural laser-cut jacquard piece from the Comme des Garçons autumn/winter 2016 collection – which eventually featured in the exhibit

Dress code: Branded ‘the trickiest Met dress code ever’, the evening simply called for stars to nod to ‘technology’ in their ensembles 

Most memorable ensemble: Beyonce took a break from her Formation World Tour to attend the Gala, where she stopped the world’s press while sporting a nude latex gown from Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci. The event came in the midst of her ‘Becky’ drama, in which she hinted on her Lemonade album that husband Jay Z had cheated, and hot on the heels of the lyrics: ‘I can wear her skin over mine. Her hair over mine. Her hands as gloves. Her teeth as confetti’, many speculated the dress was supposed to signify ‘Becky’s’ skin

Missed the mark: When Gigi Hadid announced via Tommy Hilfiger’s Snapchat that she had partly designed her gown, fans were excited – however she was panned for the lack of imagination in her dress as she stormed the red carpet with boyfriend Zayn Malik – who was lauded for his armour-inspired look

2015: China: Through the Looking Glass

Theme: The exhibition explored ‘the impact of Chinese design on Western fashion over the centuries’. The stunning collection meant the exhibit drew record amount of visitors – knocking 2011’s Savage Beauty off the top 

Dress code: The oriental theme saw many stars take on an array of extremely varied interpretations of the dress code

Most memorable ensemble: Rihanna made Met Gala history in 2015, when she tore the famous stairs in the iconic yellow coat dress designed by Chinese designer Guo Pei. The moment she emerged on to the red carpet the fur-trimmed, intricately embroidered masterpiece became an Internet sensation – with memes, fan accounts and unbridled glee being born worldwide

Missed the mark: Kris Jenner’s bold ensemble was widely-panned, with the Eighties-inspired shoulder pads and huge waist belt meaning she was lost in the gown. Lucky magazine editor-in-chief Eva Chen said at the time: ‘The fit of dress was not good on her. She just got lost in the dress a bit. The shoulder pads were kind of big and clunky and the dress just overwhelmed her’

2014: Charles James: Beyond Fashion 

A vision: The 2014 gala was a nod to British fashion designer Charles James, who was widely known as America's First Couturier and Sarah Jessica Parker was widely considered to have stolen the show in her exquisite Oscar de la Renta gown

Dress code: Vogue described the year’s theme as a homage to ‘the technologically advanced couturier Charles James and white tie’

Most memorable ensemble: The red carpet was indisputably stolen by Sarah Jessica Parker’s Oscar de la Renta masterpiece, which saw the Sex And The City legend’s famously petite frame exquisitely clad in a perfectly cut black bustier trimmed with acres of monochrome skirt and a checked train – with the gown rounded out with the late designer’s signature drawn out in a delicate red scribble

Missed the mark: Lena Dunham’s Giambattista Valli Couture dress was deemed ‘too cocktail’ for an event as decadent the Met Gala. The mullet-hemmed dress appeared to clash with her smokey eye and choppy bob due to its frothy style contrasting against her cutting edge beauty regimen

 2013: Punk: Chaos to Couture

Rock out! The wildly popular exhibit acted as a homage to the punk movement and illustrate how the era impacted on the fashion industry, with Sarah Jessica Parker's Philip Treacy mohawk being the perfect tribute to the time

Theme: The wildly popular exhibit acted as a homage to the punk movement and illustrate how the era impacted on the fashion industry. The show featured pieces from punk pioneer Vivienne Westwood alongside Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang. A stand-out piece featured was the legendary Gianni Versace safety-pin dress worn by Elizabeth Hurley in 1994

Dress code: The clue was in the name for the year’s dress code – with some stars taking Punk too literally and others barely giving a nod to the look at all

Most memorable ensemble: Again, Sarah Jessica Parker stole the crown when she trod the red carpet while rocking a mohawk hat designed by milliner Philip Treacy. Speaking of that particular night, she said: ‘Me, literally sitting on the floor of the car in order to accommodate my Mohawk was pretty freaking amusing’. She perfected the look with her edgy Giles Deacon gown

Missed the mark: While she stayed true to the theme, Madonna’s 2013 Met Gala look was veering on the side of fancy dress as she dressed up in a choppy black wig, a blazer, no trousers, suspenders and staggering pink heels. The Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci look was extremely divisive yet in true Madonna-style – widely-discussed
