The 2018 Met Gala is behind us, but the excitement is still strong. There might not be any way for us regular people to be a part of this lavish event, but this year there is one way to get closer to the opulent gala.

“The Costume Institute’s exhibitions are legendary, and I am thrilled to be able to present this exclusive range of products inspired by this prestigious exhibition. Religious history and artifacts have always been vital influences on my work, and it is an extraordinary honor for me to be unveiling these new pieces alongside this breathtaking exhibition as the first-ever beauty brand at New York’s iconic Met Store. I feel incredibly close to this year’s show, [‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’] — many of the extraordinary pieces featured are from shows and campaigns I worked on, so to me, it represents some of the most beloved, groundbreaking moments throughout my career as a makeup artist.”- the iconic artist said.
The collection was completely inspired by this year’s theme- “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”. McGrath has shown her appreciation for religion and opulence numerous times before. The most interesting part of the collection is, of course, the makeup products. No one else does makeup releases quite like the iconic Pat. The line includes the Mothership IV: Decadence Palette that debuted at the beginning of 2018. McGrath reworked the packaging to fit the Heavenly Bodies theme of the Met Gala. She and her brand are also launching a new Lust Gloss in the shade of “Aliengelic”. We’re talking about a super shimmery topcoat that will make your pout shine as bright as the sun.
The merchandise collaboration includes two black shirts. One of the designs is long-sleeved, the other one is short-sleeved. The first shirt is decorated with a metallic gold arm graphic on the sleeves that is an actual statue from the Met Museum. When it comes to the short-sleeved style, it features an oversized gold crown print. It pays homage to the Cloisters art collection. The Pat McGrath x Met collection is released for sale online on the museum’s website and at the Met store. The stunning palette will cost $125, the gloss $28 and the shirts $82 each.
The 2018 Met Gala was full of opulent, out of this world dresses that are hard to miss. It’s almost impossible to choose the best dressed of the night, but there sure were celebrities who stood out. Check out the most beautiful ensembles in the pictures below.
This stunner once again shut down the Met Gala with her mesmerizing Margiela ensemble. Just like all the previous times, Rihanna completely nailed the Heavenly Bodies theme.
The 2018 Met Gala, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” is without a doubt one of the museum’s most spectacular events yet. The opulent show took place on a total of three locations: The Anna Wintour Costume Center, the medieval galleries at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and uptown at the Cloisters. This year the event took it’s guests to Church and naturally the A-listers donned their best “service” outfits. From actual papal vestment worn by no other than the co-host of the Met Ball Rihanna to mind-blowing angel wings brought on the red carpet by Katy Perry, the 2018 Met Gala left us a lot to talk about.
Besides the overly exciting red carpet appearances, the real deal was inside the Met Gala. Twenty-five galleries took over sixty thousand square feet of space. The exhibition featured pieces from designers who were raised Catholic or were inspired by the religion throughout their career. Iconic couture designs by Gianni Versace, Raf Simons, Riccardo Tisci, Valentino, Coco Chanel, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Alexander McQueen, Cristóbal Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent, Raf Simons, Rick Owens, Givenchy and more were displayed at the galleries. The event’s Chief Curator, Andrew Bolton explained that these pieces were “intended to evoke both the concept and the experience of a religious pilgrimage”. The highlight of the exhibition were the treasures on loan from the Sistine Chapel Sacristy, many of which have never left the Vatican before.
Since this year’s Met Gala carried a religious theme, the event wouldn’t be complete without a representative of the Church. His Eminence Cardinal Dolan, the archbishop of New York was there to help the Met open the “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The place itself was decorated with over-the-top elements such as a giant wall of red roses, a stairway covered in hundreds of tall lit candles, giant vases filled with flowers, luxury tablecloths and more. For the performances, the guests were invited to sit on plush golden chairs with velvet cushions. One of the most iconic performances was delivered by the actual Sistine Chapel Choir. Boys aged 9-13 accompanied by adult singers from around the world performed at the event leaving everyone in awe. Additionally, Madonna gave a surprising performance dressed in a monastic cloak and later in an angelic white dress. Naturally, she opened her show with her “Like a Prayer” and then sang “Hallelujah”. The pop diva was also accompanied by a choir.
