It may be Thursday, but we're still thinking about the looks from Monday's Met Gala, which honored the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala's exhibit, "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination." While many celebs interpreted this theme in their own way, playing with the intersection between fashion and religion (you may remember Rihanna in her legit pope look), members of the Catholic church attended as well, in authentic garb. In fact, one in particular, Jesuit priest, James Martin, SJ, was one of Anna Wintour's "best-dressed."
The editor-in-chief of Vogue (who organizes the entire event) sat down with Stephen Colbert last night to chat about the big night, and here's what she said about James Martin.
"He is a Jesuit priest who was advising us on the exhibition, and he came in his appropriate robes. And apparently all night, people were coming up to him and saying, I really like the fact that you came as a 'sexy priest'--and you look so authentic. So that was my favorite."
Anna was quite smitten with the entire concept of the "sexy priest."
Martin also took to Twitter to chat about his look.
\u201cActually said to me at the #MetGala tonight: \n"I love your costume." \n"Is that, like, for real?" \n"Funky outfit!" \n"You're the best dressed dude here, bro." (High fives me.)\n"You look just like the real thing."\nAnd, truly: "I love that you got dressed up as a sexy priest."\u201d
