The 2018 Met Gala had a controversial theme set to it. Each year, the Gala is themed based on the new exhibition at the Met’s Costume Institute. This year’s theme, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, has been met with controversy but the curator of the Costume Institute Andrew Bolton said “dress is fundamental to any discussion about religion”.
The Met Gala is the biggest event on the fashion fundraising calendar, and is renowned for attracting the world’s biggest stars. The Anna Wintour-hosted ball is an opulent celebration of style, and this year’s benefit is no exception.
Held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Gala was founded in 1948 by publicist Eleanor Lambert and has since evolved into a night attended by some of the biggest names in fashion and show business.
