Piers Morgan, of all people, makes an excellent point.
I have some breaking news.
Next year’s Met Gala is going to have an ‘Islam’ theme.
Yes, guests in 2019 will be encouraged to wear skimpy, provocative dresses that ‘celebrate’ the Prophet Mohammad, Islamic clothing including hijabs and burqas, and the Koran.
I can also reveal that the 2020 Met Gala will have a ‘Jewish’ theme.
Yes, a bunch of celebrities and models will be posing for the world’s paparazzi dressed in all manner of Jewish attire and regalia, including dressing up as Rabbis and wearing kippahs.
Neither of these things is actually going to happen.
In fact, just by suggesting it, I’m sure I will be subjecting myself to immediate anger from many Muslims and Jews.The Met wouldn’t dream of having an Islam or Jewish themed, but Catholicism is apparently fine. Monday night was titled ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ and the stars and their designers threw themselves into the theme. Rihanna came as a silver Pope
Yet apparently it’s absolutely fine to have a ‘Catholic’ theme, as we saw at last night’s Met Gala.
Christianity, it would seem, is fair game for a mocking fashion parade.
