“Heavenly Bodies” descended on Monday night’s annual Met Gala, embracing the theme “Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” Among those attending the spectacular celebration was Jesuit Priest James Martin, who took note of some of the strangest comments he heard throughout the evening.

Martin, who wore his traditional vestments to the gala, was praised as “best dressed,” congratulated on his “sexy priest” costume and told “you look just like the real thing.”

The gala marks the grand opening of a temporary fashion exhibit — sharing its theme with the gala — at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, and the “best dressed” priest was pleased with what he saw.
