Last night, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York hosted the main event of the year in the fashion world – the Met Gala-2018 Costume Institute Ball.
Annually, the founders of the exhibition, led by the chief editor of the American Vogue Anna Wintour, collect an exclusive exhibition of costumes from the best designers in the history of fashion, dedicated to a certain topic. This year it was especially interesting and sounded like “Divine Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” (Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination). The entire exposition tells about the influence of Catholicism and religion in general on the fashion industry. The same direction was announced in the dress code of the event, where all the top stars of show business gathered. Some of them adhered to the theme and showed maximum imagination in styling the image, someone ignored the dress code and chose a spectacular evening dress for the evening.
Rihanna, who also acted as the host of the evening, chose an impressive dress from Maison Margiela by John Galliano with a headdress similar to a miter, like that of the Pope.
Katy Perry in a Versace golden dress with giant wings tried to embody the “divine” part of the theme rather than the religious one.
Alicia Vikander, the brand's envoy for the brand, demonstrated references to the nun's costume in her image.
Amal Clooney, who also acted as one of the co-chairs of the ball, decided not to follow the declared theme of the evening. and appeared on the red carpet in a bright floral print dress by Richard Quinn.
In a flamboyant dress with a veil from Dior, Cara Delevingne arrived, adapting the look of a more baptized woman than a martyr.
Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey came on the red carpet with Alessandro Michele, director of the Gucci brand in his own creation, reflecting the style of religious themes.
The master of spectacular appearances at festive events – the sister of Beyoncé Solange, and this time surprised everyone. She chose the bold dress by Iris van Herpen, which she complemented with a bag-bag and a headdress in the style of an iconic image.
Diana Kruger in a sky blue dress by Prabal Gurung looked like a true goddess.
Kate Bosworth in a wedding dress from Oscar de la Renta resembled a bride and Virgin Mary at the same time.
With a headdress reminiscent of a halo, Amber Heard posed for photographers, with a “holiness” of the image of which a daring red dress contrasted.
With a very thorough approach, Blake Lively came up to the dress, who chose the luxurious image from Versace with a massive decor and crown, which also refers to images with a halo.
Another celebrity who embodied the image of a fashion nun became actress Lily Collins. She chose a Gothic dress by Givench.
