The 2018 Met Gala will combine religion fashion and art and be hosted by three women well-known for their stylish looks.
Vogue reported that Rihanna, Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace will join Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour to host the event, officially called the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit.
“(It is) designed to create a dialogue between fashion and the masterworks of religious art in the museum’s holdings,” according to the fashion publication.
“The Catholic imagination is rooted in and sustained by artistic practice, and fashion’s embrace of sacred images, objects, and customs continues the ever-evolving relationship between art and religion,” Met President and CEO Daniel H. Weiss said in a statement, according to The Wrap. “The Museum’s collection of religious art, in combination with the architecture of the medieval galleries and The Cloisters, provides the perfect context for these remarkable fashions.”
“Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” will be May 7.
