One of the world’s biggest fashion events is back and it hands down beat the Mets that took place in the last few years. Not only was the theme a bit out of the box “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” this year, but even the carpet laid out for the A-lister was adorned in dashing pink. Why pink you ask? Well, the said theme was inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay, which defines camp as “love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration.” And what defines flamboyance more than pink?
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, welcomed the A-listers dressed in over the top make up choices, theatrical accessories, and flamboyant of them all costumes.
We would say dresses, but let’s be honest.
Lo and behold the campest and wackiest of looks Met gala 2019 had to offer
● LADY GAGA- In Brandon Maxwell and Tiffany & Co. jewelry
It’s the year of GAGA. If winning Oscars wasn’t enough, here she goes and wins the Met gala 2019 with her four different looks that she strips down to in a 16 minutes long dramatic pink carpet walk.
● Kendall and kylie Jenner- In Versace
3 million orange and purple feathers! We can already think of tons of memes that both these girls are going to get post-gala.
● Janelle Monáe- In Christian Siriano
If tons of hats and an EYEconic bra piece don’t make you campy, then nothing else works. Hats down this is wacky.
● Cardi B- In Thom Browne
The weather in New York was too chilly, so Cardi-B thought to bring her own quilt. With her red madness, she surely made heads turn with her crazy ensemble.
● Katy Perry- In Moschino
Second look of the night
Well, Perry doesn’t even need an occasion to be campy. A chandelier and a burger for the Met Gala? We bow down to the queen.
● Priyanka Chopra- In Ralph Lauren
Look at that hair. Look at that detailed makeup. Look at that eye candy by her side in diamond-studded shoes. Campiest, wackiest and downright bonkers award for the night goes to Mrs. Chopra Jonas.
● Gigi Hadid- In Michael Kors
Snow white, Is that you? OR was there a snow storm that Gigi passed on her way to Gala?
● Zendaya- In Tommy Hilfiger
Zendaya is MOOD. From getting her gown lit up to leaving her glass slippers on the stairs, she made us all gasp and awe at her highness. No one will ever recover from this.
● Lupita Nyong’o- In Versace
Designer: So which colour would you prefer going in this year? Lupita: Yes. This neon rainbow blast with the gilded picks in her hair was vision this year.
● Emily Ratajkowski- In Dundas
Channeling the supreme camp icon, Cher, Emily was one of the bold A-listers who adorned a hardly there crystal gown with a winged headpiece. Damn woman!
● Deepika Padukone- In Zac Posen
This camp Barbie in her gown with 408 embroidered pieces made her third Met gala appearance. And we have nothing to say after seeing this candy floss extravagant.
● Cara Delevingne- In Dior
This British model’s bodysuit was a pride inspired get up, with a hint of bananas on her head. If this beauty can rock bananas she can rock campy.
Met gala 2019 was the campest of them all, hands down.
This celebrity gala has satiated our thirst for fashion that will last for a year. It had burgers, outfit changing, glass slippers left on stairs, light up gowns, cut off head as accessories and triple-eyed psychedelic makeup looks.
