Rihanna, Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace to Host 2018 Met Gala

Rihanna, Amal Clooney, and Donatella Versace will join Anna Wintour to host next year’s Met Gala, it was announced on Wednesday. The theme was also revealed: “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.”

This year’s Met Gala was hosted in May by Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Gisele Bündchen, and Tom Brady alongside Wintour. The annual fashion event raises funds to benefit the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City.

In addition to their consistently glamorous looks that paparazzi and photojournalists eagerly capture, Rihanna, Clooney, and Versace have attended the Met Gala for years. Many people in the worlds of fashion, arts, and entertainment are anticipating the reveal of the stars’ sure-to-be-dramatic outfits at next year’s gala, which will take place on May 7.

Rihanna has attended seven Met Galas since making her debut at the event in 2007. She has also performed at two of the galas over the years. She put Chinese designer Guo Pei on the fashion world’s radar in 2015 when she wore a yellow dress by Pei that also blew up the internet with memes.

Versace’s first recorded Met Gala appearance was in 1995 and she has now attended 16 galas. At this year’s event, she presented a Spring 2018 tribute collection to mark the 20th anniversary of her brother Gianni Versace’s death. Clooney has attended one Met Gala; she made her debut in 2015 in a custom gown.
