The dress-over-pants look is polarizing, at best, but after you see Amal Clooney‘s 2018 Met Gala ensemble, we’re sure every hater will be a convert. The human-rights attorney and honorary co-chair of the event arrived on the red carpet on May 7th with her husband, George Clooney, wearing a rose-print dress by Richard Quinn cut out at the front to reveal a pair of navy satin pants beneath. The look was polished and poised — like Amal — and captured the essence of the event’s theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.”

Florals, of course, feature heavily in Catholic imagery — the Virgin Mary is often pictured with roses, as is the Virgen de Guadalupe.

Clooney’s Met Gala gown features a dramatic, flower-print train, as well as flowers at the center of her metallic bustier.

The Met Gala is fashion’s biggest night, hosted by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and celebrated at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. This year’s event was “designed to create a dialogue between fashion and the masterworks of religious art in the museum’s holdings,” according to Vogue, and is also being co-hosted by Rihanna and designer Donatella Versace.
