Rihanna Announced to Host 2018 Met Gala and We’re Not Invited

Fashion news

Rihanna alongside of Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace will be hosing one of the most sought out, star-studded events of the year, the 2018 Met Gala. This annual event is hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Its purpose? An annual fundraising gala to benefit the museum’s Costume Institute, whilst signifying the grand opening of its fashion exhibit. These three women have been selected as honorary chairs of the event by head chair and Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour. April seems so far but the planning is under way!

Every year the event celebrates the theme for the Costume Institute exhibit and guests are highly encouraged to come dressed accordingly. “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” was confirmed to be this years theme. After months of speculation and backlash Vogue states the event will “highlight the enduring influence of religion and liturgical vestments on fashion.” Papal garb on loan from the Sistine Chapel, along with 150 other catholic garments, will be one of the many highlights of the exhibit.

The industry premier red carpet cocktail hour is one of the most important parts of the night. 225 approved photographers, reporters and digital artists will all be documenting/ covering the who’s who and the question on everyone’s mind “Who are you wearing?” As the night progresses attendees are invited to peruse the themed exhibit and finally head to their seats to start the dinner party.

This high-profile event is a day on the fashion calendar that no one wants to miss. Will controversy arise? Absolutely! Mixing fashion and religion will always be seen as sacrilegious, but isn’t fashion all about pushing boundaries and taking risks? Well we’ll all be tuned in April 30th to see how celebs uphold the theme of the year.
