Our Favourite Looks from the Met Gala

The Met Gala is no stranger to a campy aesthetic, which makes “Camp: Notes on Fashion” only fitting as this year’s theme. Defined as “deliberately exaggerated and theatrical in style,” designers collaborated with celebrities to create a fantasy world of exuberance, humour, and grandiosity. The pink carpet hosted a bevy of wonders, from elaborate entrances and kitschy designs to severed heads and gender-bending silhouettes. Here are 10 Met Gala attendees who didn’t hold back and dared to embody the true essence of camp.

Florence Welch and Saoirse Ronan in Gucci.
Cardi B in Thom Browne
Janelle Monae in Christian Siriano
Ezra Miller in Burberry
Tessa Thompson in Chanel
