Met Gala 2018: A Red Carpet Review

In case you missed it, the Met Gala was last night, and the fashion did not disappoint. The stars came out to play and slay!

Co-chaired by Rihanna, Amal Clooney, and Donatella Versace, this year’s theme was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”. The topic is to explore how the Catholic faith has played a role in fashion over the years, with designers such as John Galliano in his Christian Dior collection and Dolce & Gabbana using the religion as their design influence. The exhibit will be featured in three galleries of The Metropolitan Museum of Art: the Anna Wintour Costume Center, the Met on Fifth, and the Cloisters. Fifty garments in the exhibit are on loan from the Vatican, with additional works from the Met’s own collection of religious art, and fifty garments from designers inspired by the Catholic faith.

Normally there is always the question of if the A-list guests will stay on theme with their gala looks, but they surprised many of us fashion followers. Take a look at some of my favorites below:
