Heavenly Bodies Part 4 "The Vatican"

All diamonds this was just really quite fantastic 
Totally beautiful 


How fabulous are these shoes!!! 
Mitre of Leo XIII (1878–1903). German cloth of silver embroidered with gold metal thread, diamonds, emeralds, sapphires and semiprecious stones, from 1887.



These items just leave you breathless 
Another angle of those shoes, they look like they could be pretty comfy! 


Tiara of Pius IX (1846-78), German and Spanish, 1854. Cloth of silver embroidered with gold metal thread, gold, diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds and pearls. 
How gorgeous is this tiara? It gives the English royal family a run for their money!

Heavenly Bodies Part 3 "The Vatican"

The diplomatic and liturgical coup of “Heavenly Bodies” is in the Anna Wintour Costume Center, which features nearly four dozen articles of clothing and other regalia of recent popes, lent from the Sistine Chapel Sacristy. The church obliged the Met to keep the religious garments separate from the fashion objects, and they wanted a clean display, as the vestments are still in use. 
Just beautiful 


It is so amazing these items were preserved for us to see all these years later 

Very cool keys 



Wonderful to see in person 



This is really gorgeous 







This was really wonderful to see and so much detail and beauty
