The Met Gala celebrates Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination

Well, it is May, and along with the wonderful celebration of motherhood...It is also the time when Fashion and Art collide at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York for what is fondly known as the Met Gala.  This year sees a particularly nuanced "collision" as Anna Winter,  Editor of Vogue harnesses the rich and beautiful aesthetic of the Catholic Church in "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination". It truly is Donnatella's time to shine...Vatican collaboration considered!


It's good time to be a frock lover, let me tell you! I wonder if there is a confessional for tragic like me who love to see the workmanship and lush materials paraded on the red carpet. I don't have much interest in celebrities, but I do appreciate an elegant carriage of an opulent and well designed frock! Some of my favourites below...

This is a time to see the glories of the craft of fashion design and the skill of the couturiers les petites mains, or little hands which has been honed over centuries. This is the thrill of fashion for me...this magnificent moment passes so quickly.
Atelier Versace...The boots are a bit humble, but they were very on trend for the night.

John Galliano gave Rhianna a frock to die for, perhaps others might consider it more costume than gown?

Moschino in the game, celebration of the Madonna.

Atelier Versace

Versace...chain mail forever!

It really was a night for Atelier Versace, the gowns were incredible, but then again, this is Donnatella Versace in her element.
