Met Gala 2018 : Fashion and The Catholic Imagination
The Met Gala is the biggest event on the fashion fundraising calendar, and is renowned for attracting the world’s biggest stars. The Anna Wintour-hosted ball is an opulent celebration of style, and this year’s benefit is no exception.
Held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Gala was founded in 1948 by publicist Eleanor Lambert and has since evolved into a night attended by some of the biggest names in fashion and show business.
Each year, the Gala is themed based on the new exhibition at the Met’s Costume Institute. This year’s theme, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, has been met with controversy but the curator of the Costume Institute Andrew Bolton said “dress is fundamental to any discussion about religion”.
According to the New York Post, the exhibition will feature “Catholic-inspired couture alongside actual religious garb from the Vatican and Sistine Chapel Sacristy”. This is said to include a papal tiara set with 18,000 diamonds that will be flown to New York accompanied by its own bodyguard.
Met Gala dresses are known for being outlandish and unique creations by renowned designers, with the red carpet being one of the most watched events of the year.
