It’s a few hours to the 2018 Met Gala Awards and we are counting down to one of the biggest fashion exhibit in the world! According to Wikipedia, “The Met Gala, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. 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.”
The trio hosting this edition of the Met gala are Amal Clooney, Rihanna, and Donatella Versace. Yes! I felt that chill too. Three very influential women are going to be co-chairing.
Beyond seeing the faces of musical stars, designers, actors and all other celebrities, what I crave to see is the fashion statement these celebrities would make. Have you seen the themed dresses these people wear? The fashion satisfaction is overwhelming. I’m talking about the ‘Emma’ kind of feel; The ‘Midsummer Night dream’ kind of feel.
The theme of this year’s Met Gala is ‘Heavenly bodies:Fashion and the catholic imagination’. This could be one of the most controversial and interesting themes of all times. So many questions have been going through my always wondering mind;How are these stars going to secularize the catholic church? Which celebrity is going to make the biggest fashion statement? What is Madonna going to wear? Will Beyonce be there? Let’s not forget Kanye West, who most people believe would be absent considering the recent controversies surrounding his name.
There are a number of celebrities whose look I desperately anticipate.
In 2016, Madonna made a political statement and a fashion statement of course, with her Met Gala dress, which was one of the most controversial outfits in the history of Met Gala. Madonna is famous for incorporating undisguised elements of the catholic church in her songs and music videos. She has a love/hate relationship with Catholicism. This theme seems to have been made for Madonna, and I’m wondering, what would she wear?
She is the most anticipated look for any event, any at all. She is the queen of historic cum contemporary fashion. Always dedicated to the theme, she has won the most iconic look award for two years she’s attended the Met Gala; 2015 and 2017.
I seriously want to see how iconic this year’s look would be. Rihanna doesn’t have to strive to make a statement to actually make one.
This woman is known for her out of the world, outstanding looks. She is constantly dedicated to the theme of the Met Gala. I want to see what this dramatic and ever daring fashion player has in plan tonight.
Well these three are my most anticipated celebrity looks for tonight’s Met Gala. My hands are cold, my legs are crossed. let’s wait and watch as the event unfolds.
