The first Monday of May is known for the Met Gala, where the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art hosts the famous Costume Institute Gala. Each year embraces a new theme to kick off the fashion exhibit. Last year’s theme was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” and it’s important that celebrities follow this strict dress code.
This year’s theme is “Camp: notes on Fashion” inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay: Notes on “Camp,” which is described as not talking in “terms of beauty” but rather “in terms of the degree of artifice, of stylization.”
While watching the red carpet live on E!, there were so many celebrities who nailed this year’s theme. From dragon and snake looks to neons, Gaga’s 15-minutes of outfit changes and Kris Jenner’s blonde wig; if you missed the red carpet, then you’ve come to the right place. Here’s a recap of what celebrities wore to this year’s Met Gala.
