At long last, fashion's most important night, The Met Gala 2019, "Camp: Notes on Fashion" is finally upon us. Ahead of the coveted event, Hollywood heavy hitters, musicians, and industry insiders put their best foot forward with far-out looks at kick-off engagements over the weekend. From the Vogue #CottonCampy party at New York's historic Stonewall Inn, to an intimate dinner at Anna Wintour's Greenwich Village apartment, the 2019 Met Gala pre-parties were jam-packed with looks that set the tone for the grand affair.
Nothing is off limits when it comes to camp. A true playground for all things extra, city sidewalks were filled with party-goers dressed to the nines, turning heads while en route to each extravagant bash. From statement suits to voluminous tulle, trendsetting attendees leaned into the over-the-top sensibility that characterizes Susan Sontag's iconic essay, which the Met's newest costume exhibit pays tribute to.
Setting the tone for Monday's gala and fresh spring style, a slew of tastemakers delivered on standout ensembles adorned in sequins, satin, and stripes — and that's only the appetizer. As you wait eagerly for the main event, feast your eyes on The Zoe Report's roundup of standout looks from the pre-Met festivities.
