Met Gala 2018

Met Gala 2018

The Costume Institute Gala at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is the biggest event on the fashion fundraising calendar.

This year will see Amal Clooney, Rihanna and Donatella Versace co-hosting the gala so we can definitely expect these fashion favourites to be in attendance. This year will be the first time that Clooney has hosted and the 2018 Met Gala marks it’s 70th anniversary.

The Met Gala 2018 theme this year was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination features some 40 Vatican vestments and accessories spanning 15 papacies, which curator Andrew Bolton is said to have visited at least 10 times to secure pieces which have never left the Vatican’s possession before. Items such as Pope Benedict XV’s white silk cape embroidered with gold thread and the pointed bishop’s hat of Pope Leo XIII, will go on display alongside pieces by Coco Chanel, who was educated by nuns, John Galliano, Crist√≥bal Balenciaga and Donatella Versace, who is a sponsor of the exhibition.

Founded by publicist Eleanor Lambert, the benefit was first held in 1948 to encourage donations from New York’s high society. In its modern incarnation, the most famous faces from the realms of fashion, film, music and art come together to raise money for the Met’s Costume Institute and celebrate the grand opening of its latest exhibition.
