My religion isn’t your fashion piece, critics knock Catholic-themed Met Gala 2018

From Katty Perry’s dress designed with six-foot angel wings, to cross-emblazoned, boobs-barring Kim Kardashian’s ensemble, and Rihanna’s papal crown and cape with substantial flesh showing up and down, the Met Gala boasted of copious religious imagery.

The reason is simple: The 2018 Met Gala theme was Heavenly Bodies — Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.

The hosts for the Monday evening event were Rihanna, Amal Clooney and
Donatella Versace.

The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City.

The event holds annually every first Monday in May. And it marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit.

Each year’s event celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night, since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit.

Although the 2018 Met Gala has come and gone, many respondents have offence at the theme and the attendant fashion that greeted the red carpet, with some calling it “sacrilegious.”
