According to a report by Business Insider, the annual Met Gala, which serves as the inaugural event of the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute's spring exhibition, has traditionally been fashion's most over-the-top party of the year. However, BI reports that there was a clear lack of diverse bodies at this year's Met Gala, with many people taking to Twitter to point out that almost all of the attendees were of similar body types. While Met Gala co-chair Rihanna, actress Blake Lively, and rapper Cardi B shone in this year's theme, 'Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,' many found the lack of physical diversity alarming. Business Insider's Gianluca Russo wrote, "This is on not only designers but those who make the Met Gala invite list, to give people of all body types a shot to truly rock the theme and show that anyone, no matter what they look like, can be involved in fashion and the conversation at large."
