So, the Met Gala is tomorrow, and I already have a vision for what I want to see...
The theme of the exhibit is Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, however the suggested attire is "Sunday best." I expect the black celebrities to CARRY on the red carpet. They've been preparing for this very moment their entire lives!
I'm especially excited for the women. I want to see opulent, extra hats and fascinators. Church fans and lap scarves should be in hand for extra effect. I need to feel the gaudiness of a southern Sunday church service. It should feel like Easter Sunday, and all of the church mothers are trying to show each other up. I want to be gassed and have my inner churchy nature fed.

Ah, wishful thinking. I already know the carpet will feature some Catholic-influenced gowns; Rihanna will come back to claim her red carpet title; there will more than likely be some borderline blaspheme moments; and the carpet will be cute but nothing special.
I'm still excited to see the red carpet looks though. I'm especially looking forward to all of the commentary - my favorite part, honestly.
Who are y'all looking forward too seeing? Who are your favorite looks from past galas? Leave a comment and let me know!
