The Met Galaâ€™s theme for 2019 is camp â€” which implies you’ll be able to count on to see some wild appears.
The theme, based mostly on the title of this yrâ€™s Costume Exhibit, performs off Susan Sondagâ€™s 1964 essay â€œNotes on Camp.â€
â€œCertainly the essence of Camp is its love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration,â€ wrote Sondag within the influential essay. â€œI’m strongly drawn to Camp, and virtually as strongly offended by it.â€
However this gainedâ€™t be the primary yr that Met Gala attendees sported appears with a decidedly campy twist.
Gucci is one model that embodies this theme, and because it serves as one of many sponsors of this yrâ€™s exhibit, we are able to count on to see many attendees outfitted within the label. (Alessandro Michele, Gucciâ€™s artistic director can be a co-host).
In 2018, Lana del Rey and Jared Leto hit the pink carpet in Gucci kinds. Leto sported a blue go well with with a gold crown, whereas del Rey had on an embellished, long-sleeved white robe and a blue feathered headdress.
Camp is commonly over-the-top, with Sondag presenting â€œSwan Lake,â€ Tiffany Lamps, King Kong and Artwork Nouveau as examples.
Rihannaâ€™s Maison Margiela search for final yrâ€™s gala was decidedly campy. The Fenty x Puma designer stepped out in papal-inspired headgear with a silver gown and an elaborate, floor-length cape. Christian Louboutin heels accomplished her daring ensemble.
Over time, Katy Perry has typically adhered to the camp theme as effectively. Her 2015 look would have been excellent for this yr. Stepping out with Moschino designer Jeremy Scott â€” himself the king of camp â€” Perry wore a pop-art impressed gown and carried a sprig paint bottle purse.
