With the 2018 MET Gala theme being “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”— fashion’s biggest night is bound to be either controversial or awe-inspiring. The theme is, in fact, a harmonious meeting of fashion and religion, which, acccording to Harper’s Bazaar, is approved by the Vatican. Along with over 150 designer pieces, the Costume Institute’s next big exhibit will also include 50 garments and accessories loaned from the Vatican.

“Every show we do at the Costume Institute has that potential,” said Andrew Bolton, the curator in charge. “This one perhaps more than any other. But the focus is on a shared hypothesis about what we call the Catholic imagination and the way it has engaged artists and designers and shaped their approach to creativity, as opposed to any kind of theology or sociology. Beauty has often been a bridge between believers and unbelievers.”

Finally, the MET Gala was held last night and it was nothing short of bold, beautiful, and outrageous. Here, we countdown the best and interesting looks on the red carpet:
