2001 Naomi Campbell included.
You guys. The Met Gala is on Monday! This year’s exhibit, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” is, according to Vogue, “designed to create a dialogue between fashion and the masterworks of religious art in the museum’s holdings,” and will be presented at the Anna Wintour Costume Center and the Met’s medieval galleries, as well as in uptown NYC at the Cloisters.
We’ll be sharing a first look of the exhibit on Instagram tomorrow, and bringing you some some very glam getting ready and red carpet stories (stay tuned!) but to get in the spirit beforehand, we’re looking back at our favorite looks from years past—that iconic Rihanna look included.
“Alexa Chung regularly knocks it out of the park when it comes to the Met Gala, but her look for 2016’s Manus X Machina is my fav by far. I am an absolute sucker for women in suits. It’s such a boss move in the usual sea of glamorous dresses. Even better that her usual choppy bob was slicked back and showcasing a killer pair of statement earrings. Add to the mix a plunging neckline and a few pounds of sequins, and I am SO on board.” —Hannah Baxter
