The Met Gala had a Catholic theme this year, and many celebrities chose to embrace it with heavenly looks. However, Miley Cyrus went for the opposite side by wearing a seductive black gown at the event named Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. The 25-year-old artist, known for her transition from Disney princess to pop queen in 2013 at the VMAs, accidentally flashed her backside while arriving at the prestigious event.
What a bold move! Miley Cyrus appeared at the Met Gala in New York City donning an incredibly stunning black dress that revealed a glimpse of her behind as she walked along the red carpet.
In a daring fashion move, the famous star decided to flaunt her figure in a dress with a neckline that plunged low and a backless cut that was nothing short of dramatic. Miley Cyrus opted to forego wearing a bra, revealing not only her tattoos but also a number of stunning necklaces, including several from Gabriel NY. Her outfit for the gala was both simple and understated, yet refreshingly bold, reflecting the emotional complexities of Catholicism. To add a touch of religious symbolism to her risque black dress, Cyrus donned jewelry in the shape of various religious symbols.
Miley added a delicate touch to her outfit with a slender gold cross necklace that gracefully wound its way along her back.
Miley Cyrus dared to go braless in a revealing black dress which showcased not just her tattoos and necklaces from Gabriel NY, but also ample amounts of skin. It was a bold move on her part to show off her dark side.
Getting a lift: A helper held up the train of the famous singer’s dress while she went up a flight of stairs.
A kind gesture: The celebrity received aid while ascending the stairs of the Metropolitan Museum.
The enticing blonde exhibited just the right amount of skin, complemented by gold crosses on her ears and neck. It’s possible that the cross on her neck symbolizes the Christian belief that we are all sinful and seek redemption. While other attendees dressed up as Jesus or the Pope, Miley opted for a more relatable interpretation – that of a Catholic struggling with human vices while still yearning for purity. Instead of focusing on the divine aspect, Miley showcased a more realistic representation – that of the guilt often associated with being Catholic. This fashion statement reflects her ongoing battle to distance herself from her previous image as a wholesome, American sweetheart, and instead create music with deeper meaning.
She was in her element, the stunning blonde, as she elegantly posed on the red carpet.

The atmosphere was light and playful as Stella McCartney, the celebrated designer, playfully gave a friendly squeeze to the famous star’s derriere during a conversation with Paris Jackson, another one of her muses.
Great friends: Miley reciprocated the kind gesture by giving the designer a loving peck on the cheek.
Each year, the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art hosts an annual gala that corresponds with their exhibit. The latest exhibit focuses on the relationship between fashion and Catholicism, exploring how the two intertwine in religious traditions. It’s a unique combination of fashion designs alongside sacred works of art. To add to the experience, 50 of these sacred works have been loaned from the Sistine Chapel sacristy at the Vatican.

She was a natural in front of the cameras, her stunning smile capturing the attention of all. The Anna Wintour Costume Center galleries will soon showcase a range of religious items, including papal vestments and various accessories like rings and tiaras, dating from the 18th to the early 21st century. With over 15 papacies represented, the exhibit highlights the enduring relationship between fashion and religion. Andrew Bolton, head curator of the institute, expressed his thoughts on the intertwined nature of fashion and religion in a statement.

The crowd was in awe of Miley’s sultry outfit as she entered the venue. The fashion industry has a complicated and debated history, however, it has also produced some of the most imaginative and groundbreaking designs of all time. The showcased collection of 150 outfits is sourced from various prominent designers such as Coco Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, and Gianni and Donatella Versace, to name a few. This highly anticipated exhibition, curated by the Costume Institute and the Department of Medieval Art and The Cloisters, will be on display from May 10 to October 8.
