Rihanna Will Host 2018 Met Gala
Rihanna will host the 2018 Met Gala. The singer and actress will be joined by Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace, who will also host.
The annual event, held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, will take place on May 7, 2018, with a theme of “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.”
The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each year’s event celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night, since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit. Each year, celebrities are chosen to serve as the event’s honorary chairs.
