From The Vatican to Versace, Get Excited For Next Year’s Religious Themed Met Gala Hosted by Amal Clooney on May 10th 2018

It is no secret that the Metropolitan Museum of Art’sGala (formally known as the Costume Institute Benefit) and the Costume Exhibition are a few of the most anticipated fashion events of the year. Well, as of last week, the world-renowned museum announced its 2018 Costume Exhibition, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. It will be presented at The Met Fifth Avenue in the medieval galleries and the Anna Wintour Costume Center as well as The Met Cloisters.

The Met Fifth Avenue and The Met Cloisters will exclusively open the exhibit to Met members on May 8th and will open to the general public on May 10th, and it will conclude on October 8th. Heavenly Bodies will open with the world-renowned Met Gala on May 7th. The hosts of this prestigious benefit will be fashion leaders Amal Clooney, Rihanna, Donatella Versace, and Anna Wintour. Christine and Stephen A. Schwarzman will serve as the honorary chairs, and additional contributions are made by Conde Nast.

Andrew Bolton, Curator in Charge of The Costume Institute, released:

“The Catholic imagination is rooted in and sustained by artistic practice, and fashion’s embrace of sacred images, objects, and customs continues the ever-evolving relationship between art and religion,” said Daniel H. Weiss, President and CEO of The Met. “The Museum’s collection of religious art, in combination with the architecture of the medieval galleries and The Cloisters, provides the perfect context for these remarkable fashions. Fashion and religion have long been intertwined, mutually inspiring and informing one another. Although this relationship has been complex and sometimes contested, it has produced some of the most inventive and innovative creations in the history of fashion.”

Next year’s exhibit will feature 50 masterpieces from the monumental Sistine Chapel. The last time such items were sent from the Vatican to the Met was in 1983.

Of course, the most sought-after part of the exhibition is the fashion. The exquisite and carefully curated array of ensembles will include those of:

About the dress :

Extraordinary Gianni Versace metal mesh oroton toga style dress. A similar dress is in the Collection of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Gianni Versace celebrated rock and roll, flashiness and the nouveaux riches. he made bad taste, good taste and invented the supermodels. He was also a giant of creative talent and unique vision and the world of Italian fashion design is a lonelier place without him. This incredible metal mesh dress is from the first season Versace showed his patented material ‘Oroton’. He wanted a material that would be like the armor of a medieval warrior but to drape as a fluidly and softly as a Madame Gres gown.

Amal and George Clooney at Suberbicon after party in Venice, 02.09.2017

On Saturday, Amal and George Clooney made their first public event appearance since the June birth of their twins, Alexander and Ella, stepping out in Venice for the red carpet premiere for  Suburbicon, which George directed, co-produced and co-wrote alongside his longtime collaborators the Coen brothers.

Amal stole the show in a stunning lilac Atelier Versace gown — but her after-party look was just as eye-catching.  Charlotte Tilbury, who has been responsible for Amal’s glam on the trip, took to Instagram to share a photo of Amal’s post-premiere look: a tiered, brightly-colored one-shoulder minidress and metallic pumps.

Amal and George Clooney Attend London Premiere of Armenian Genocide film The Promise 06.04.2017

 

// via Twitter

 

Amal and George Clooney with singer-songwriter Chris Cornell attended the London premiere of the Armenian genocide film The Promise.

Amal Clooney was not present on the red carpet.

Chris Cornell, who composed the theme song for the film, posted a photo on Twitter.

Elton John, Cher, Barbara Streisand, Andre Agassi, Sylvester Stalonner, Dean Cain and Leonardo DiCaprio have all expressed their support for the film.

The Promise,” which world-premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last September, will go on wide release in the U.S. on 2,000 screens via Open Road Films on April 21.

The roughly $100-million film is considered a breakthrough after several attempts to make a Hollywood film about the Armenian genocide failed during past decades.

“The Promise” centers on a love story involving a medical student (Oscar Isaac), a journalist (Christian Bale), and the Armenian woman (Charlotte Le Bon) who steals their hearts. All three find themselves grappling with the Ottomans’ decision to begin rounding up and persecuting Armenians.
