Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.
I know, I know. I saw the theme and balked too. 
But, if you think about, the influence of Catholicism on art is immense. The Renaissance, in particular, was a period that attempted to express and understand the religion by putting its most iconic imagery into pieces of artwork, whose splendour has lasted centuries. If you focus on it in this way, as opposed to thinking that the only way you could dress appropriately for it would be to turn up dressed up as a nun or the pope (I am looking at you, Rihanna), then a whole host of other imagery comes to mind - velvet, gold. Very ornate, very luxe, very heavy, very Versace. 
It is no wonder that Donatella is one of this year's event chairs.
