The theme, entitled "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Logical Deduction of the Nature of Reality", featured celebrities to the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Donatella Versace, Rihanna, Gigi Hadid, Kim Kardashian, and bigtime liberal George Clooney. After wowing on the red carpet, the pop star was forced to turn sideways to squeeze the six-foot stunners through the gala entryway.
Rihanna rolled up to her own Met Gala after-party after 2 a.m. on Tuesday morning at NYC club Up & Down, having changed from her "papal chic" outfit to "pajamas". Add Met Gala as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Met Gala news, video, and analysis from ABC News.
Hadid also sported black leather, pairing a crop top with trousers by Chrome Hearts (who also designed her much-talked about Met Gala ensemble). "Christianity, it would seem, is fair game for a mocking fashion parade", Morgan continued. Despite the 2018 theme even getting the nod of approval from the big man himself (the pope, not God), Morgan still couldn't bring himself to approve... because he is a Catholic. "This is not about who you like the most", one user commented, and we couldn't agree more.
Other Kardashian family members represented at the Met Gala included matriarch Kris Jenner in a high-collared, feathery concoction and Kylie Jenner in a long, strapless black gown featuring a torso cut-out.
To which my response is: "what the hell was the Vatican thinking?"
Another noticeably absent supercouple was Beyonce and JAY-Z, but it appears there's no drama there - sources claim the pair skipped this year's Met Gala to get some rest before their joint On the Run II Tour kicks off in June. Well, I do mind.
Past themes include "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology" and "Punk: Chaos to Couture", so the 2018 exhibition is unusual in pulling inspiration from the Catholic tradition so explicitly.
"If the obvious answer is "No, of course not" then they should all be ashamed of themselves", Morgan concluded. Can we hear an amen?
