Every year the highly-anticipated Met Gala gathers celebrities from all industries for one night to step-out onto the red carpet in most daring creations.
The fundraising event kicks-off the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit.
When is the Met Gala 2018? This year’s event falls on Monday May 7. The red carpet starts at 7pm local time in New York, which is 12am in GMT.
What is the theme of the Met Gala 2018? This year`s theme is “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” Designed to create a dialogue between fashion and the masterworks of religious art in the museum’s holdings, the show will be presented in a trinity of locations: the Anna Wintour Costume Center, the medieval galleries at the Met’s Fifth Avenue location, and further uptown at the Cloisters. 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, even in the 1983 Met blockbuster, “The Vatican Collections: The Papacy and Art.”
