My fondest Met Gala-related wish for 2018 is for it to turn out that someone was filming all meetings of the co-chairs — I assume Anna Wintour dragged them into Conde Nast to discuss napkins and seating plans? — and we will get to watch the trio of Rihanna, Amal Clooney, and Donatella Versace argue about who got to wear the literal Pope hat. (Obviously, Rihanna won. Obviously.)
Also, as this is the first post of the day, the theme of the night was — for your reference! — “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” although we also heard that the attendees were told they could wear “Sunday Best,” which I feel like was a gentle note to let everyone know they didn’t have to wear, like, ecclesiastical robes if they didn’t feel comfortable going Full Religious Iconography. For once, I actually feel like most people managed to give a nod to the theme — although a lot of of them sort of slid into Renaissance Painting Person Wearing a Crown. Which means we have a LOT of crowns to eyeball today. Things could be worse.
I’m also pretty sure you want to see this:

NEVER let it be said that Rihanna doesn’t commit.
