A New Testament to Fashion: MET with ordinance


Religiously, fashion's fiercest commits to an ethereal theme for the MET Gala. This year, we sing the praises of the "Heavenly Bodies" that graced the carpet, crossing couture with catholicism. Before you pass judgement on these theme-followers, I must say that this congregation delivered.

Though she went from being a contemporary christian singer to a sin-sational pop artist, Katy Perry gave the gospel in this angelic get-up.
