The Best 2019 Met Gala Looks From This Year's Camp-Themed Event

Share

The first Monday in May marks a crucial event for the fashion world: it's Met Gala night. This year's theme, Camp: Notes On Fashion is an ode to the quirky, funny, and subversive corners of fashion, which means that attendees weren't afraid to break out their most over-the-top ensembles on the red carpet. With Lady Gaga co-hosting the evening — alongside Serena Williams, Harry Styles, and Gucci's creative director Alessandro Michele — it was pre-destined to be one of the boldest years to date. The best Met Gala looks of 2019 are all plenty glamorous, but more than that they're bursting with irreverence and an unusual sense of fun.

From the moment that Lady Gaga arrived on the red carpet accompanied by dancers and wearing not one, but four entire looks, any of the attendees' pre-Gala jitters melted away and everyone walked their way up the Met stairs ready to celebrate (and maybe even sneak in a A-list bathroom selfie). And though, many years the theme feels like more of a loose suggestion than required dressing, this year the fashion world's biggest trendsetters were right on the mark. Below, find a breakdown of the night's most memorable looks from a roster of impressive designers that range from Miuccia Prada to Virgil Abloh.
