Holy Fashion: 'Vogue' Just Revealed the Met Gala's 2018 Theme

The magazine - whose editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, has chaired the Met Ball since 1995 - noted that the three guests of next year's event have attended a combined 24 Met Galas.

The Met Gala is to fashion as the Oscars is to acting.

We are sure that this will be inspiring a lot of outlandish ensembles on the first Monday of May when the event is set to take place. Versace has attended a total of 16 Met Galas, Clooney has attended one in 2015 when she stunned the crowd in a John Galliano gown and Rihanna has been an attendee along with a performer for the event. Central to the conversation will be the papal garb on loan from the Sistine Chapel sacristy, many of which have never been seen outside the Vatican, even in the 1983 Met blockbuster, "The Vatican Collections: The Papacy and Art".

The Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute is heading to church next year with ashow titled, "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination", that focuses on how religious vestments have influenced fashion for centuries.

Meek Mills was charged to court over a failed drug test and unapproved travel, stemming from a 2008 gun and drug case. Brinkley said the prosecutor was too new to the case to understand how Mill just "does what he wants".

The 2018 exhibition will be presented in both the medieval galleries as well as the Anna Wintour Costume Center at the Fifth Avenue location, and a third installment will open at The Met Cloisters in upper Manhattan.

Next Spring, the Costume Institute and all its celebrity devotees will be praising the sartorial angels and putting their most pious sartorial foot forward.

Naturally, the Institute's annual fundraiser, which will be co-hosted by Amal Clooney, Donatella Versace, and Rihanna, has followed suit, and will also have a potentially controversial religious theme.
