Our Favourite Looks at the Met Gala 2019 Red Carpet

What exactly does “camp” mean?

In the western part of the world, it’s the first Monday of May, and what does that mean? The Met Gala 2019. It’s probably the most-celebrated fashion event every year, and why wouldn’t it be? Everyone who’s invited, from the biggest celebrities, including models and fashion insiders, steps out of their comfort zones and into the most outrageous and extravagant outfits for the night. 

This year’s theme is probably a bit confusing for some; “Camp: Notes on Fashion” seems to be a slippery, hard-to-define concept for those who aren’t so well-versed with the industry. It actually isn’t about embodying a camping trip and arriving in hiking boots and lugging a tent and sleeping bags—no, camp means exaggeration, extra, over-the-top fashion.  

The people on this list (and some) notwithstanding, it seems that the guests didn’t get the memo. (We’re looking at the men dressed in plain black suits, and those who went theme? What theme?, but that’s a story for another day.) Here are our favourite, campiest looks on the red carpet:
