Rihanna to Co-Host Met Gala 2018

Rihanna has been selected to host the 2018 Met Gala alongside Donatella Versace and Amal Clooney.

According to Vogue, the theme of 2018’s show will be “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” and is set to take place May 7, 2018.via Vogue: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 display of these extraordinary ecclesiastical pieces will highlight the enduring influence of religion and liturgical vestments on fashion, from Cristóbal Balenciaga to Donatella Versacewho is a sponsor, alongside Christine and Stephen A. Schwarzman, of the show. (Condé Nast will provide additional support.) Among the 150 or so ensembles that will be on display are pieces by Coco Chanel, who was educated by nuns, and John Galliano, whose transgressive Fall 2000 Couture collection for Christian Dior opened with a mitred, incense-swinging pope-like figure who proceeded down the runway to a voice intoning: “Understand the concept of love.”

By placing fashion within “the broader context of religious artistic production” (like paintings and architecture), Costume Institute curator in charge Andrew Bolton, working alongside colleagues from the Met’s medieval department and the Cloisters, aims to show how “material Christianity” has helped form “the Catholic imagination.” The intersection of faith and fashion, the sacred and profane, as it were, has not always been easy—“complex and sometimes contested” is how Bolton characterizes the relationship—but the interplay between the two has inspired some awe-inspiring sartorial innovation.

We know she will step out in style and we are looking forward next year to seeing what she will be wearing for the major event!

JAY-Z & BEYONCE JAZZY UP FOR RIHANNA’S CHARITY BALL

Jay-Z and Beyonce clean up nice… lookin’ even better when it’s for charity.

Perhaps most notably, the event marked Beyoncé’s first official red carpet event since welcoming twins Rumi and Sir back in June. Though the “Love On Top” singer opted not to walk the red carpet, we were still able to get a good look at her stunning ensemble. Beyoncé rocked a green silk dress with a thigh-high slit and plunging neckline that showed off her post-baby body.

The couple hit up Rihanna‘s third annual Diamond Ball in NYC benefiting RiRi’s foundation that pours money into impoverished communities around the globe.

RiRi’s party was packed with celebs. Calvin HarrisFuture, Cardi BLil KimLa La AnthonyFabulous and Young Thug also hit up the event all for a great cause. Kendrick Lamar performed and Dave Chappelle also grabbed the mic. Earlier that night, Beyonce attended a showing of Broadway’s hit musical Dear Evan Hansen where she hung out backstage with the show’s star Ben Platt after the show.

The event’s host, Rihanna, looked just as fierce for the evening, going with a black dress with a built-in off-the-shoulder jacket and flowing train. Naturally, the “Diamond” singer shone bright with Chopard diamonds around her neck as she adorably posed with her entire family on the red carpet.
