Each year, the first Monday of May marks the most important night of fashion. Planned by Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue Magazine, the event draws a hand-selected crowd of A-list celebrities and anyone able to purchase the $30,000 ticket to support the Costume Institute.
Guests come dressed in designer wares to reference the theme set for the night. This year, attendees wore looks inspired by the history of the Catholic Church, as the exhibition currently showcased in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, entitled "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination."
While the internet is a storm of Best-Dressed lists in the wake of the event, many do not consider the symbolism in the fashion and creativity in following the theme, rather focusing on the aesthetic qualities of the ensemble. However, the Met Gala is centered around the Costume Institute and some unusual elements may add to the value of the look. This list is based on the elegance of the complete look while accounting for success in referencing the Vatican-approved theme, however subtle or overt.
