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.

  6 tricks to keep your home safe during travel 6 tricks to keep your home safe during travelAs you cross chores off your to-do list before an extended vacation, don’t forget to secure one of your most precious possessions: your home. According to the most recent data from the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics, roughly 1,515,096 homes were burglarized in the US in 2016.

This year’s theme is Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination, which has inspired Jared Leto to look like Jesus, Rihanna to channel the pope , and Katy Perry to wear full-on angel wings. But my favorite look of the entire night? Zendaya’s Joan of Arc –esque hair and outfit combo.

“I dreamt of Joan of Arc one night and called Versace and was like, ‘What if we did something to reference Joan of Arc ?’ “For me, Versace is one of the houses that we’re all waiting to see what they do this year.” See all the 2018 Met Gala red carpet looks here.

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…

While some people at the Met Gala stuck with the captial-T theme of Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination and showed up in opulent papal realness , Zendaya, who went with a deep Catholic cut by channeling Joan of Arc .

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.

Every Time You Pee, Do These 3 Things to Help You Lose Weight .
Quick fixes usually don't cut it when it comes to losing weight and getting toned, but this one-minute trick actually works! Take into consideration this little fact: the average woman pees six to eight times in a 24-hour period, so that's about five to seven times while you're awake. And if you have issues with your bladder (thank you, pregnancy!) or you drink a ton of water each day, your ladies' room visits are more like 10 times a day. So this means you have six to 10 opportunities to fit in a little fitness. Every time you hit the bathroom, whether it's to pee or touch up your lipstick, do the workout below that should take about one minute. The Workout: Complete once 10 push-ups (lower the knees if you need to) 10 squats 10 alternating forward lunges (five per side) If you're using a public bathroom, do not get on the floor to do your push-ups! Just lean your hands on the counter, then after your lunges, you can wash your hands. Maybe you can even get some of your co-workers to do it with you! If the bathroom you're using is so public that you feel weird doing this mini workout in front of anyone, find a spot somewhere else where you can pump out this one-minute bodyweight workout without feeling self-conscious. But do it immediately after leaving the bathroom. If you wait, you're more likely to forget. So let's say you use the bathroom six times in a day. That adds up to 60 push-ups, 60 squats, and 60 alternating lunges.
