What makes this all the more savory is that this year's theme "Fashion and the Catholic Imagination," all but delves into the crazy relationship of the LGBTQ community and Catholicism. Until now!
Oh, and y'all know I lost my freakin' mind once it hit social media:
And all the stans came out to let their sexy, rainbow-filled hearts glow:
And of course a lil' shade never hurt anybody:
Lena has spoken out in the past about her identity and style, telling Vanity Fair, “Being black and gay, having dreadlocks, having a certain kind of swag, and dressing the way I do...That’s dope, you’re cool. I don’t feel validated by that...I don’t want to be White. I don’t want to be straight. I don’t want to blend in...I try to wear queer designers who happen to be brown and makin’ shit.”
Her suit and cape (which I want) were designed by none other than Carolina Herrera. They're nothing short of a political statement — one that's driven by good ol' fashion.
And honestly, isn't that what fashion is supposed to be? A revolutionary act that reflects our culture and the times? If it's not, then fashion was never for the people, by the people.
