Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination

Today I went to the Met with Evan and a friend. I wanted to share some of my snapshots from the Costume Institute’s brand new exhibit, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. This exhibition was more spread out than usual, spanning the actual institute in the basement, where they housed the more religious garments from the Vatican, through the Medieval collection. They even have some stuff uptown at The Cloisters.

It was a sight to see! I loveeedddddd looking at how the designers pulled inspiration from the religion of Catholicism. And we all reveled in the irony of the opulence of the papal garments. Seriously people, can you be any more material?

Either way, I really enjoyed the exhibition as a whole. It was very dramatic — exactly what I expect from the Costume Institute.
