Met Gala: Everything You Need To Know

Met Gala: Everything You Need To Know

Yeah, that's shaping up to be pretty next-level too, with a host roster that includes the aforementioned Rihanna along with Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace.

While Donatella and Rihanna are Met Gala regulars, with the Umbrella singer regularly stealing the headlines with her bold style choices at the event, Amal is a relative rookie, having only attended once before. The glam squad takes over from last year's celebrity co-chair's Katy Perry, Pharrell, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady. On display will be a mixture of designer clothing with religious inspiration, including designs by Coco Chanel and John Galliano, and actual ecclesiastical garments on loan from the Sistine Chapel sacristy-some of which, according to Vogue, have never been seen outside of the Vatican.

Vogue reports that the theme is "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination".

Universal's monster universe is reportedly in grave danger
Movie studio Universal are reportedly on the verge of dropping the idea of a Dark Universe . In fact, the trend of building out cinematic universes might be dying out with it.

"Most people have experienced that through religious paintings and architecture".

Donatella is the Met Gala veteran of the trio, as next years bash will mark her seventeenth appearance.

"The focus is on a shared hypothesis about what we call the Catholic imagination and the way it has engaged artists and designers and shaped their approach to creativity, as opposed to any kind of theology or sociology", Bolton told the New York Times. "Beauty has often been a bridge between believers and unbelievers".

Drive for gender pay equality 'going backwards'
Nicky Morgan, Conservative MP said "We've seen the best employers make ground breaking strides in tackling gender inequality". But the job won't be complete until we see the talents of women and men recognised equally in every workplace'.

This is Amal's second Gala as she first attended the huge event back in 2015 with her husband, George Clooney.

Rihanna arrives at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute benefit gala celebrating "China: Through the Looking Glass" on Monday, May 4, 2015, in NY.

Packers TE Martellus Bennett ruled out Sunday against Bears
