For this 2019 edition, Met Gala’s costume exhibition was entitled; Camp: Notes On Fashion. But why such a name? The theme was actually inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay, defining camp as the love of the unnatural… love for exaggeration! And we surely did have a whole load of exaggeration on the red carpet. Here are those who managed to keep up the trend while becoming the stars amongst the “galactic” show!
Lady Gaga – When One Dress Is Too Mainstream!
The Camp theme was created for Lady Gaga! She didn’t resort to any meat dress this time… Mother Monster preferred being the extra in extravagant with four Brandon Maxwell dresses! She entered Met Gala with a giant Barbie-pink gown with five valets holding onto the trailing draperies. Just where everyone is supposed to pose for the pics, she revealed a stunning black strapless gown with a black umbrella. Third time was a charm, since she appeared in another barbie-pink slip dress and finally, Lady Gaga dropped the covers for some chic lingerie with sparkly tights. That’s quite a way to mark a presence!
Kylie And Kendall Jenner – Cinderella’s Evil Sisters
Met Gala 2019 saw Kylie and Kendall Jenner in Versace. These two did not shy from the theme… after all, they’re the Kardashians. The sisters decided to show up on the red carpet with a look inspired from Cinderella’s Wicked Stepsisters. Kylie went for a purple slick gown with matching coloured hair. As for Kendal, orange was her new black. She boasted a slick orange gown with feathers. Both pointed out on their own Instagram stories that they’re representing the evil sisters of Cinderella! Hmmm… we wonder who Cinderella in their story is… definitely not Kim!
