Most people have no idea what all these uber super stars are overdressed for every first Monday of May. They just know it potentially will supply us with all the memes we will need for the duration of the year. It’s the MET gala; a black-tie event that raises money for their costume institute.  Every year there is a theme, usually considerably over the top but so much fun to see many of our favorite celebrities go all in with it. Some are really good and some you wish they stuck to a t-shirt and jeans. Nevertheless, this star-studded event of who’s who did not disappoint this year. This year’s MET gala was hosted by Anna Wintour of Vogue, naturally, Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele, Actor, singer-songwriter and newly added to his set of skills ear-piercer, Harry Styles. Along with Lady Gaga and the serve queen herself Serena Williams.

 

The theme this year was Camp. No, like just hockey mask, machetes, horny teens and khaki shorts. Camp has in a style of personal and creative expression, unnatural and exaggeration.  I promise I’m not making this up google it for yourself.  Fuse that with some pop-culture and world-class designers and you have yourselves the must-see for the 2019 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute benefit.
