However it’s safe to say the celebs have outdone themselves again, taking the Camp: Notes on Fashion and running with it.
Met Gala Camp theme
First off, a bit of context. Like previous years, the theme was an extension of the Met’s exhibition, curated by Andrew Bolton and Wendy Yu, around Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay Notes on “Camp” which amongst other things describes it as a love of exaggeration. Gucci was the official sponsor, so the fact there would be extravagant and fabulous outfits was a given.
Met Gala 2019 Lady Gaga
She pulled off not one, not two, not three but four Brandon Maxwell looks on the red carpet. All within five minutes of arriving on the pink carpet. She arrived in a hot pink ballgown, which she took off to reveal a slightly smaller black ballgown which she took off to reveal a pink column dress, and finally stripping to her black underwear, all whilst using props such as a giant Barbie-style phone, an umbrella (ella) and then a cocktail trolley. What a performance.
Met Gala 2019 best dressed
Now at this point it’s safe to say Rihanna is the Queen of the Met Gala red carpet, and this year she’s cemented her title, opting for another flashy dress. And while we didn’t think it possible for Lady Gaga to beat that Golden Globes dress, we were sorely mistaken.
Serena Williams came to serve (sorry), in a bright yellow Versace gown with matching neon Off-White Nike trainers.
