The Met Gala is one of the most infamous nights for fashion. This year the theme was ‘camp’ and here are some of our favourite looks from The Met Gala 2019.
Darren Criss rose to fame in 2010 in Glee and has recently been in the Netflix original American Crime Story about Versace. Described on Twitter as the ‘gayest straight man to ever live’ he fully embodied the camp theme of the Met Gala this year.
Sporting a Balmain suit and fierce makeup, Criss really showed the men who decided to just turn up in black suits what it really means to follow the theme.
Starting on Disney channel at just 15, Zendaya really showed us what it means to be a Disney Princess with her Cinderella-inspired ensemble. Her Tommy Hilfiger dress went above and beyond with it lighting up spectacularly as her stylist Law Roach swished his magic wand as her Fairy Godmother. Her illuminated gown wasn’t the only impressive part of her performance on the red carpet as she left a single glass slipper on the stairs of the Met.
Michael Urie, a former actor in ‘Ugly Betty’, really showed gender-bending thanks to designer Christian Siriano in his half-dress half-suit outfit. One side of his outfit was a pinstripe suit, whilst the other was a pink tulle gown. His split-gender outfit had the makeup and footwear to match and really left a lasting impression on the red carpet.
It’s impossible to know where to begin with Lady Gaga’s outfit as there wasn’t just one, but four different reveals until she finally was left in her underwear, fishnets and some insane platform heels. When it comes to camp, Lady Gaga really does know how to deliver not just a look but also a show to go with it. Within the opening minutes of the Met Gala, it really can be said that Lady Gaga stole the show in her extravagant Brandon-Maxwell outfits.
Known for being in the boyband One Direction and now for his successful solo album, Harry Styles graced us with his camp ensemble on the steps of the Met. Wearing Gucci, Harry Style did free the nipple on the red carpet wearing a see-through black top with high waisted trousers and a cheeky Cuban heel as well as a pearl earring. Whilst it can be said this look was a bit understated compared to the likes of Urie and Criss, we love how simple yet effective this outfit followed the theme and left a lasting impression people. An outfit people will not forget.
