Met Gala 2018- All About Next Year’s Theme

By: Abby Malone

The wait is finally over! The 2018 Met Gala theme has been released- and it is definitely unique. The official title is “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” paying homage to Catholicism and the dress associated with the religion.

Throughout the years, designers have used Catholicism as an inspiration for their collections. Rich fabrics and colors are commonly associated with Catholicism so there definitely will be lots of royal-esque looks to be seen on the attendees.

However, because this theme is based on religion, there will undoubtedly be controversy regarding the choice. Those attending most likely will channel some sort of religious aspect in their outfits, and this could not go over well with those who do not necessarily follow Catholicism.

With that being said, it is a really unique theme, and I personally am excited to see how creative the attendees get! I know how excited I get the morning after the Met Gala because I can see all of the celebrity’s crazy looks- some of the ones worth watching are Gwenyth Paltrow, Frank Ocean, Rita Ora, and, of course, Kim Kardashian.

But in the meantime can May come any sooner?
