With the theme of Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, this year’s Met Gala was literally a religious experience—but not everyone got their #fashioninspo from the church.

We saw plenty of Vatican yellow, crosses, stained-glass inspo and cardinal red but a select few celebs opted to channel a completely different aspect of Catholicism and its history. Shailene Woodley, Zendaya and Michelle Williams all went for a strong, steely looks inspired by historical icon Joan of Arc.

Forget cereal—dietitians say pizza is a healthier breakfast option

  Forget cereal—dietitians say pizza is a healthier breakfast option Yep, a slice of that cheesy goodness in the morning is probably better for you and your kids than pouring that bowl of sugary cereal.Most cereal commercials mention that a bowl of cereal is part of a complete breakfast, and on the screen, you’ll see a bowl of cereal surrounded by whole wheat toast, fruit, a glass of orange juice and a glass of milk (although, who would want to drink OJ and milk in the same meal? And why would any drink a glass of milk when there’s already milk in your cereal? Confusing, but let’s move on).

In case you missed grade 10 history, here’s a quick recap: Joan of Arc was born to a poor French family in 1412, at a time when France was at war with England. At an early age, the peasant girl began having visions of saints guiding her to help France win the war. She was ultimately burned at the stake for her efforts for being a heretic, but she was later pardoned of all charges and officially declared a Roman Catholic saint in 1920—a casual five centuries after she was killed.

Basically, she was a badass—as Woodley, Zendaya and Williams recognized.

Woodley wore a long-sleeved, military silver Ralph Lauren that was v reminiscent of medieval armour, complete with a high ponytail and riding boots. Unfortunately though, not everyone thought she looked like Joan of Arc…

"I’ve always loved to cook, but I do it more now because she needs to sit down more," Legend said. Chrissy clarified his statement in the most Chrissy way possible, correcting it to "lay down" more.

“Wow,” was the collective gasp from the MarieClaire.com team when Zendaya stepped onto the red carpet at the Met Gala tonight. “Zendaya’s look was inspired by the power of Joan of Arc and the opulence of Versace, who dressed her this evening," said Stephen.


Zendaya on the other hand absolutely nailed the “Joan of Arc but make it fashion” look in a Versace gown and blunt red bob. Fun fact: in the process of becoming a fearless leader, Joan of Arc chopped off her hair and dressed in men’s clothes—inadvertently creating an iconic look of feminist power.

“When I knew the theme and Versace, we started the conversation, there were a lot of sketches from Versace and I started thinking about strong women who had a connection to religion,” Zendaya’s stylist Law Roach told WWD. “I dreamt of Joan of Arc one night and called Versace and was like, ‘What if we did something to reference Joan of Arc?’ They came back with really, really great sketches.”


Williams went with a more simple take in a floor-length Louis Vuitton armoured dress with leather cap sleeves and studs. It was strong yet demure—and effortlessly elegant.

While we loved the over-the-top church attire, seeing three women dressed as a literal hero had us feeling truly #blessed.
