The theme is supposed to invoke a conversation about fashion in relation to the religious artworks at the Met. After the Gala, the on-theme exhibit of over 150 garments will be on view in different parts at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cloisters and the Anna Wintour Costume Center. The displays will feature pieces on loan from the Sistine Chapel — some of which have never been seen outside of Vatican City, Vogue reported.
The annual celebration is essentially a fund-raiser for the Met’s Costume Institute and has earned the reputation as the biggest party of the year with a long invite list of the world’s most fashionable celebrities.
The Met Gala will take place the evening of May 7, 2018, and the subsequent exhibit, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” will be on view May 10 – Oct. 8.
