An exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York is on its way to being one of the most attended exhibits in the museum's history, Crux Now reported.

The exhibit, "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination," has received 500,000 visitors at the Met on Fifth Avenue in New York, and 70,000 additional visitors have seen the other part of the exhibit at the Met Cloisters.

"Heavenly Bodies" is the biggest exhibit of its kind in the museum's history, with over 110 items on display from designers such as Versace and Dolce and Gabbana, the report said.

The Met's collection looks at "fashion's ongoing engagement with the devotional practices and traditions of Catholicism," The Met's website said.
