The 2018 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala (a.k.a. the Met Gala) is just days away! The event, which always takes place the first Monday in May, will be hosted by Amal Clooney, Rihanna and Donatella Versace. As for the theme, it’s “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” which could not be more apt given the influence religion has had on the sartorial, and of course, the Met’s rich body of religious artwork.
How the celebs in attendance will interpret that theme, we’ll have to wait to see. In the meantime, we invite you to take a trip down memory lane of Met Galas past. From Taylor Swift’s iconic 2016 makeover to Lupita Nyongo’o’s stunning flapper dress in 2014 there have been oodles of chic and outrageous moments to choose from.
