The 2019 Met Gala was held in New York on Monday, May 6 and Hollywood’s top stars and fashion icons were dressed to look their best.
The Met Gala is an annual event where culture and fashion elite mingle to celebrate The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute newest exhibition. This year’s exhibit, “Camp: Notes On Fashion”, explores the origins of camp’s exuberant aesthetic. Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on ‘Camp'” provides the framework for the exhibition, which examines how the elements of irony, humor, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality, and exaggeration are expressed in fashion.
But, while some of the male attendee’s had the courage to step out in full camp attire, a lot of them chose to play it safe, and as a result, fell flat in their efforts to embrace this year’s theme.
