It’s only a few hours away from the Met Gala night, and the anticipation for what the attendants will appear in is very high. Wondering why? The theme for the event!
The gala which will be hosted by Rihanna, has been entitled “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”.
According to Vogue Magazine, it explores the connection between fashion and Catholicism. Self-confessed fashion nerd Andrew Bolton, the Costume Institute’s chief curator is aware that the choice is controversial, juxtaposing as it does items of spiritual import with the world of more earthly, commerce-driven delights. Not that he minds. “I think every exhibition should generate debate,” He goes ahead to say, “I think it’s important to stimulate debate and to put ideas out there that are difficult to deal with or seen as problematic. That’s the role of any museum: to expand people’s ideas about a topic through objects.”
Fans have taken it upon themselves to recommend costumes for the attendants and top celebs, pleading with them not to do decent and play safe. Many are eager to see what Madonna, Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Selena Gomez amongst others will wear. See some of the costumes profered by fans below:
