“Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” – This is everything you should know about the most important (and fashionable) celebration of the year.
The relation between fashion and religion will embody the dress code of the 2018 MET Gala. The topic, of awkward nature, might just be the most controversial and most interesting ever seen.
A constant reference in the work of many designers – Rick Owens, Dolce and Gabbana, Jean Paul Gaultier – who will jump into the world of red carpets and mainstream culture for the excuse of the major exhibition.
To celebrate the opening of the exhibition “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”, the MET Gala will take place on May 7. The event is the main source of financing of The Costume Institute.
In 2017 Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady were some of the hosts for the night that paid homage to Rei Kawakubo and his work.
This year, Amal Clooney, Rihanna and Donatella Versace will assume the role. A well agreed and plural trio of women that encapsulates #GirlPower. An activist, a singer and a designer joined by the same cause.
At the moment only a few celebrities have been announced, but, like every year, we’ll be anticipating more details: from those who take the topic super literally (Rihanna, for example) to those who more or less carry out their own interpretation.
As of now, we know that Blake Lively is working alongside Lorraine Schwartz and Christian Louboutin for her dress, while Hailey Baldwin has affirmed in her Instagram stories that hers will be designed by Tommy Hilfiger.
