Why is this supposed to be controversial? The Vatican is involved with this even!

I thought subby was joking, but according to TFA ecclesiastic garb is actually part of the show (though not the majority).

... cool, I guess?

I'm not a judge of high-fashion most of which I find horrible but that is not bad. A little sacrilegious maybe but meh

So, man.... like, could God make a woman so hot that, like, His own fist would vaporize if he tried?

Woaaah.

It's an icon, but I can't tell whom.

Chariset: gilgigamesh: I don't know about it as a dress, but that one picture in the article that looks like an illuminated manuscript is farking cool.

It's a Roman Catholic style icon of Mary.  You can tell because of her cloak.  The blue is always representative of her humanity, and the red inside the cloak is representative of her queenship of heaven.  Eastern icons usually have the colors reversed (showing her divine royalty on the outside, humanity on the inside).  I can't tell much else from the picture.

Icons like that aren't physically sacred or anything, but they do represent scripture as a visual story (it is as correct to say that the image is written as it is to say painted, as it is considered on the level of sacred text), so if it's done respectfully as a way to highlight Catholic culture and art I'm not sure there would be much to clutch pearls about.  If it's done like most pop culture does Catholic imagery I could imagine someone determined to be offended could call profaning the sacred or cultural appropriation or something, but given the involvement of the Church I doubt that is the case.

I've heard the metaphor of the window.  You see divine realities when you look at an icon, but the icon is not itself divine.
