Life is a party. Dress for it.*


"The things that make us different, those are our superpowers - every day when you walk out the door and put on your imaginary cape and go out there and conquer the world; because the world would not be as beautiful as it is if we weren’t in it."
- the extraordinary Lena Waithe, who wore a rainbow flag chasuble to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute annual Gala, which, to coincide with its new exhibition, was on the theme “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.”

Among many others from the ranks of the great and the good and the not-so-good; also in attendance at this fanciest-of-fancy-dress parties were Rihanna as a diamanté Pope:



Queen Madge as... The Madonna:



Zendaya ["Whooooo?"] as Joan of Arc:



...and Katy Perry as a fallen angel:



My invitation obviously got lost in the post.

*quoth Audrey Hepburn.

  1. I like the Joan of Arc and Fallen Angel. The Pope hat is fantastic, but I want to tell Rihanna, "Kameron Michaels wore it better."

    As for Madge, it seems well, expected. Nice but meh. Nobody's mistaking her for a virgin...

    Would it have been too much if I had gone as an alter boy? Or Maria von Trapp?
