Ah yes, the most anticipated day in fashion has finally arrived and it is more heavenly than ever.
The 2018 Met Gala was a site for holy eyes with this year’s exhibition theme of Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination (let the church say amen!) Fit to the theme, the holy trinity of prestigious fashion Donatella Versace, Amal Clooney and Rihanna were the co-hosts of the evening along side Anna Wintour.
Arguably one of the MET’s most controversial theme thus far, Heavenly Bodies was the chosen topic to evoke a dialogue between fashion and religious art – what could be a better cross collaboration than the holy cross itself? It is safe to say that our (fashion and art) prayers were answered last night as attendees came draped in vails, crowns and of course immaculate gowns.
The show was presented in three locations: the Anna Wintour Costume Center, the medieval galleries at the Met’s Fifth Avenue location, and for any New York natives, uptown at the Cloisters. Scroll below to view our Sunday’s best favourites presented on the first Monday of May.
