Met Gala 2019 – The Red Carpet
The Met Gala’s red carpet is known for delivering some of the most daring fashion statements of the year. The charity benefit, which costs upwards of $30,000 a head to attend, has a rich history of attracting risqué outfits. Lady Gaga wore not one — but four outfits to the event while actor Billy Porter, decked all in gold, was carried in on a chaise by six shirtless men.
And then there was Lady Gaga, who really made an entrance. She arrived wearing a billowing fuchsia gown that required multiple people to hold it up as she blew kisses for the camera. The Oscar-winner also opted for some exaggerated, campy makeup to complete her look, which actually consisted of not one, not two, but four outfits.
The event’s reputation, coupled with 2019’s theme “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” has again resulted in an eye-catching assortment of bold looks. And, as the stars of stage, screen, music, fashion and sport arrived at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York Monday night, it also became clear that definitions of “camp” remain open to interpretation.
