Katy Perry in a chandelier outfit, Jared Leto with his head in his hands, a striptease by Lady Gaga. You cannot call the red carpet at Met Gala 2019 boring!
The annual Costume Institute Ball is traditionally held on the first Monday of May. First of all, this event is interesting for its dress code, which changes every time. This year the theme of the event sounds like Camp: Notes on Fashion.
What's camp? This concept was coined by American writer and critic Susan Sontag in the middle of the 20th century. Camp is a playful grotesque, pretentiousness, deliberate theatricality and vulgar looks with self-irony. Everything that is "too much" something is great. Forget about "Hollywood classics" and languish looks — designers let their imagination flow! The arrival of the guests turned into a real masquerade ball, so the audience has something to see and discuss.
Below is a selection of the 40 most insane, bold and memorable outfits at Met Gala 2019. Did the celebrities match the theme of the event, it is up to you to decide :)
