Spring gala season in New York City has all the makings of a great night out — party guests are dressed to the nines, the champagne flows freely, and the dance floor is always full. Yet, among the hundreds of worthy causes holding their annual celebrations, it’s the Metropolitan Museum of Art and its Costume Institute that garners the most attention thanks to its sheer star power.
At the behest of Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, legions of bold-faced names from the worlds of fashion, film, stage, and sports converge to raise staggering sums at the annual Costume Institute Gala. This year, partygoers got a first look at the latest “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and The Catholic Imagination” exhibit.
Here, we’ve highlighted the newest crop of merchandise, courtesy of the Met Museum Store, that lands perfectly in line with this year’s theme.
