Sure, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City is an awesome spot for those who love fine art and culture. It stands as one of the most outstanding destinations to head when in NY and the culture itch kicks in. But it’s also just as famous for it’s annual Met Gala, a veritable magnet for the fashion and fabulous-inclined. They don’t call it “fashion’s biggest night out” for nothing. 😉 And this year’s edition, boasting a theme many called controversial: “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” intended to provoke dialogue between fashion and the amazing religious pieces among the Museum’s collections (some never having been seen before outside the Vatican like the papal garb on loan from the Sistine Chapel sacristy) was one of its most spectacularly impressive to date. For your TRAVEL TUESDAY style-loving, creative-centered brains, some of the fashion that caught our eye … and had us worshipping at its mastery and that of its celebrity wearers …
