The Best Of The Grand Gala
Hollywood’s biggest costume party of the year just polished their crowns
The theme of the evening- “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”- celebrities only brought the saintly envision to life on the red carpet. Designers like Dolce & Gabanna, Prabal Gurung, and Iris Van Herpen, completely revamped the relationship between art and religion. This years Met Gala brings not only godly silhouettes, but a universal message much needed in today’s society. “the church and the catholic imagination, the theme of this exhibit, are all about three things: truth, goodness, and beauty. That’s why we have great schools and universities, to teach the truth; that’s why we love and serve the poor, to do good; and that’s why we’re into things such as art, poetry, music, literature, and yes, even fashion—to thank God for the gift of beauty.”, first time guest, Timothy Cardinal Dolan.
Each A-lister of the evening wore their own envision of a masterpiece (thanks to the designers themselves), but I have rounded up Sunday’s best. Swipe to see my personal favorites.
