Heavenly Bodies: Fashion And The Catholic Imagination

Yesterday was the Press Preview
and Met Gala to celebrate the Heavenly Bodies
 show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The Press Preview began at 10 AM and started 
with a long line. Armed men in army green
stood by and dogs sniffed all the bags and backpacks.

Inside the show is split up into the Costume Institute,
the Medieval Galleries & Robert Lehman Wing with 
another section further uptown at the Cloisters.

I enjoyed seeing Galliano being interviewed and
Donatella Versace, and of course His Eminence 
Timothy Michael Dolan, Archbishop of New York 
who gave his remarks as did Stephen Schwarzman.
