Met Gala 2018: Here's Why We Think It's the Years's Most Exciting Event

The Met Gala is the event where designers can really let art take the reigns without any restrictions. The Met Gala's red carpet portrays the artistic side of fashion. It is the time where people recognize and appreciate fashion as an art statement not just clothes or a pretty designer dress. 

The reason we find a lot of excitement when it comes to the Met Gala is that it's the only time where it's not about liking the dresses or thinking it looks 'good' it's a lot more than that. I see it this way, the celebrities become a canvas that displays the amazing art designers have to offer. The designer takes the theme and takes their muse/celebrity and they create something that merges their personality to the dress and the theme. 

This year's Met Gala’s theme is Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. The Catholic church is known for its extravagance and its strong usage of art, paintings and clothing to portray its message and history. So seeing what fashion it has inspired is absolutely exciting and riveting. 

Designers were inspired by biblical paintings inside interiors of churches and the architectural structures during the Renaissance era. The two biggest statements on the carpet were gold and exceedingly long gown trails and Atelier Versace designs. You can almost say the heavenly bodies ( that is the beautiful celebrities) left trails of catholic inspiring art on the red carpet.

About the Author

Big thumb profile Women's World farida abdel malek

Farida Abdel Malek The first time she watched "The Devil Wears Prada" around the age of 12, Farida felt something that she couldn’t quite explain at that time. She was inspired. The clothes, the hair, the makeup and of course, Paris. It made her feel ecstatic; wanting to jump years ahead to enter the industry in a way or another. She is a makeup fanatic and spends 80% of her time looking at new products, and putting them on her wishlist. She studied multimedia journalism, and wanted to further utilize it by writing about her passion. Farida loves to take time for herself and unwinds by watching "Friends" and doing her skincare routine before bedtime.
