Met Gala 2019: Our Favorite Looks Of The Camp-Inspired Night

The Met Gala once again brought out the greatest names in the celebrity world for a night of haute couture, where the stars showed up in their best ‘camp’ inspired ensemble. This year’s theme—Camp: Notes on Fashion—pays homage to all things “unnatural, of artifice and exaggeration.” The stars who graced the iconic Pink Carpet at the historic New York Metropolitan Museum of Art certainly took the theme seriously—from exaggerated, costume-like hair and makeup to lavish, trailing gowns, millions of crystals, colorful getups and of course, grand entrances (shoutout to Lady Gaga and Billy Porter)—the looks at this year’s most coveted night of fashion were extraordinarily memorable. Here, we recap some of our favorites (and in-theme) of the night:
