The Met Gala that took place on May 7, 2018, gathered several celebrities who wore religious-like outfits. Paris Jackson, the King of Pop’s daughter, was one of them.
According to Daily Mail, the 20-year-old model arrived with designer Stella McCartney and Miley Cyrus with a copper-colored dress that attracted a lot of sights. Apart from her number, what captured people’s attention were her tattoos.
Since the gown was sleeveless and had a deep V-cut, all the tattoos Jackson has on her arms and chest were visible. The lower part of the dress exposed her legs as it was made with a semi-sheer veil.
Just as most people did, Jackson wore a crown that added a halo of shimmer to her outfit and her blue eyes were highlighted thanks to the dark eyeliner she chose.
McCartney, who not only designed Jackson’s dress but also the one Cyrus wore, put on an opulent emerald gown. The aspect that attracted more sights about it was its sleeves that were bigger than usual.
The one Cyrus wore was black and, just like Jackson’s, it showcased the singer’s tattoos. It had a deeper neckline and didn’t cover her back at all, an aspect that Cyrus knew how to use in her favor as she posed showing off her fit figure.
At the end of the event, Jackson was seen heading back to the hotel where she stayed wearing sunglasses and without her heels. Other celebrities including Rihanna, Amal Clooney, and Donatella Versace were also present at the star-crowded event.
Since this year’s theme was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, their intention was to examine 'fashion's ongoing engagement with the devotional practices and traditions of Catholicism.'
This gala was tied to an exhibit at the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art that will show the combination between fashion and religion and will include 50 ecclesiastical masterworks on loan from the Sistine Chapel sacristy at the Vatican.
