  • The 2018 Met Gala Theme Has Been Revealed!

The glam squad takes over from last year's celebrity co-chair's Katy Perry, Pharrell, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady. For 2018, the Met will host a "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination" exhibit, which will be kicked off by the annual party.

The display of these extraordinary ecclesiastical pieces will highlight the enduring influence of religion and liturgical vestments on fashion, from Cristóbal Balenciaga to Donatella Versace, who is a sponsor, alongside Christine and Stephen A. Schwarzman, of the show. "Central to the conversation will be the papal garb on loan from the Sistine Chapel sacristy, many of which have never been seen outside the Vatican".

"The Roman Catholic Church has been producing and promoting lovely works of art for centuries", says Greg Burke, director of the press office for The Holy See. Perhaps they'll celebrate a single style icon, like 2001's Jacqueline Kennedy: The White House Years Gala?

"Every show we do at the Costume Institute has that potential", curator Andrew Bolton told the New York Times of the Costume Institute's upcoming exhibition. "Beauty has often been a bridge between believers and unbelievers". Completing the holy trinity of hosts for what's sure to be a soul-fulfilling night are Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace who will also assume hosting responsibilities for the event.

Rihanna arrives at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute benefit gala celebrating "China: Through the Looking Glass" on Monday, May 4, 2015, in NY. Clooney has attended one gala, in 2015, when she stunned in a red custom Maison Margiela Artisanal gown by John Galliano just months after marrying George Clooney.

Meanwhile, Rihanna has attended the Met Gala no less than seven times, the first time being back in 2007.
