Heavenly Bodies: Met Gala Best Dressed 2018

What were you doing on the first Monday in May? Were you glued to the interwebs hunting down every single photo from the Met Gala red carpet? Well, that’s what I was doing! It was after all fashions biggest night of the year. If you don’t know much about the Met Gala, you can learn a little more from my past posts (here and here), but at a high level, all you need to know is that it’s a night for the biggest who’s who in fashion to work the red carpet with their most extravagant looks.

The gala is always held on the first Monday in May, is themed around the opening of a new fashion exhibit at The Met, and is held to raise money for the Costume Institute. This years theme was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. The fashionistas that attended the Met Gala took this theme to heart, or should I say heaven, and really dressed to impress. Some years it’s hard to tell what the theme is based on what the attendees wear, but this year it was quite obvious, and there were some beautiful translations into the garments worn. The Catholic Imagination theme is already garnering a lot of feedback and getting flack for being a controversial topic. I however thinks it’s pretty incredible to see how people have translated the old world detailing of the Catholic church into fashion. (Maybe I could borrow one of these ensembles to wear to church next week?) Below are my picks for best dressed.

It’s incredible to see so much fun and excitement about fashion, and it’s even better to see it all done to raise money for a great cause. If you will be in NYC between May and October I recommend making a stop at The Met and sending up some prayers to the heavenly bodies on display. It is bound to be an interesting exhibit! After all, it’s not every day you get to hear about Fashion and the Catholic imagination.
