At one time i had no idea what the hype was about the Met Gala. I get it now.
It’s the opportunity to do something wild and uncomfortable – art on your body, out of the ordinary, the chance to embrace a theme.
The hosts: This year’s hosts are Rihanna, Amal Clooney and Donnatella Versace. They’re a nice combination; Rihanna is a bit of a wild child that takes fashion risks, Donnatella loves prints and Amal’s aura is very classic and chic.
Rihanna in 2017’s Comme de Garcons avant garde theme.
2018 Theme: Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. My guess would be that based on the style of the Catholics and the Vatican, the Gala will be very opulent with an artful display of fantastic, expensive jewelry and rich colors like red, gold, and green. We shouldn’t be surprised if we see crucifixes either.
The date: May 7, 2018 for the Met Gala fashion event
