She’s attended seven Met Galas before and next year, Rihanna will get to host the annual fashion extravaganza. The 29-year-old “Wild Thoughts” hitmaker has been named one of the co-hosts of the 2018 Met Gala.
Joining her with hosting duties are Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace. Last year, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Gisele Bunchen and Tom Brady had the honors.
“Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” is the theme chosen for next year’s exhibition. Below is Vogue’s description of the theme.
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.”
The 2018 Met Gala takes place on May 7, 2018. For more, head over to Vogue.
