Prepare for a controversial theme for the upcoming Met Gala: Art and Religion. Religion can be a sensitive topic for many. This may be why the committee chose to make next year’s gala theme centered around the topic. Celebrities have used the Met Gala as a platform for not only haute couture looks, but also powerful political statements. Next year’s red carpet is sure to be full of such moments. Following the gala, the Met will display an exhibit featuring the influence religion has had on the world of fashion. We expect the exhibition will include pieces from designers like Dolce & Gabbana and Gauthier who have shown overt references to religion in their past collections. So will you travel to see this controversial exhibition?
