. YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL. Reporter: THANK YOU. THE WHO’S WHO OF THE FASHION WORLD HAS STARTED WALKING UP THE STEPS HERE. TAKE A LIVE LOOK BEHIND ME AT THE NOT SO RED CARPET, MORE LIKE GOLD. THIS YEAR’S THEME IS CATHOLIC AND HOW STYLE AND RELIGION INFLUENCED EACH OTHER. IT’S THE FASHION EVENT OF THE YEAR AND FOR THE GALA’S 70TH YEAR, THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART IS ADORNED WITH CATHOLIC IMAGERY. THE EXHIBITION EXPLORES THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FASHION, ART, AND RELIGION INSPIRING ONE ANOTHER AND RESULTING IN SOME OF THE MOST INNOVATIVE CREATIONS IN THE HISTORY OF FASHION. IT SPANS 60,000 SQUARE FEET THROUGHOUT 30 GALLERIES, 40 MASTERPIECES FROM THE SISTINE CHAPEL, MANY THAT HAVE NEVER TRAVELED OUTSIDE THE VATICAN BEFORE. WHILE THIS YEAR’S THEME IS BUN OF THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL, CURATORS SAY RELIGION AND FASHION ARE UNDENIABLY CONNECTED. WANNABES OPERATION FOR THIS — INSPIRATION FOR THIS, POPE BENEDICT’S RED SHOES. IN THE CATHOLIC IMAGINATION, THE TRUTH, GOODNESS AND BEAUTY OF GOD IS REFLECTED ALL OVER THE PLACE, EVEN IN FASHION. BEFORE THOUSANDS OF GUESTS CAN EVEN ADMIRE THE EXHIBITION, THEY WILL SHOW OFF THEIR OWN BEAUTIFUL AND OFTEN ECCENTRIC ATTIRE ON THE RED CARPET. THE LAST TIME THE VATICAN SENT A LOAN OF THIS MAGNITUDE TO THE MET WAS IN 1983. A TICKET TONIGHT COST ABOUT $30,000 BUT YOU CAN COME SEE THE EXHIBITION THROUGH OCTOBER.
