It’s the most sought after invitation in the celebrity universe – and on Wednesday singer Rihanna was announced co-chair of next year’s glittering Met Gala in New York.
Rihanna‘s fearless red carpet fashion always ensures that she is queen of the Met Gala, so it’s only appropriate that the bad girl will be taking her rightful place as one of this year’s official hosts of fashion’s biggest party.
The singer will be joined by Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace as co-hosts. The latter is a 62-year-old legendary Italian designer while Amal, the British-Lebanese wife of Hollywood heartthrob George, is an international human rights lawyer also famed for her impeccable fashion sense.
The singer has been showing up in the most unpredictable outfits to past Met Galas and we simply can not wait to see what she will bring to the 2018 edition.
Held every year on the first Monday in May, the black-tie extravaganza is attended by the most elite coterie of A-list Hollywood actors, best-selling music superstars, top models and fashion designers.
The Gala’s 2018 theme is “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” The exhibition, which will open May 10, will feature papal robes and accessories flown from the Vatican that will serve as the “cornerstone” and showcase the influence of liturgical vestments on designers. The theme seeks “to create a dialogue between fashion and the masterworks of religious art”
Designers in the exhibition will include Balenciaga, Chanel, Givenchy, Karl Lagerfeld, the Versaces and Vivienne Westwood.
