Madonna nailed the monk look at Met Gala

By Dave DiPietro – Director of New Products – Museum Replicas

Well, a few weeks ago we were contacted by Vogue Magazine and were told they needed a bunch of our (Museum Replicas Limited) Monk’s Robes. Never in my wildest dreams did I think they would be worn at a surprise post-dinner performance at the Met Gala by Madonna, herself, along with a host of back-up singers! They looked GREAT!

Madonna surprised us at Met Gala!

The Queen of Pop appeared on the steps of the Met Museum’s Great Hall, incognito in the monk’s cloak and surrounded by a choir of singing monks before taking off her hood and singing her 1989 smash “Like a Prayer” and later closed the performance with a rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”. A fitting conclusion to a night that celebrated saints and sinners.

The gala, a star-studded fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, was this year themed around "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination".

I guess you’ll never know where our period clothing will wind up next?
