Met Gala 2019: Red carpet looks

1/20

This year's Met Gala, which took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, USA, wasn’t just about fashion, it was a performance. From Katy Perry’s chandelier outfit to Billy Porter’s black throne, the pink carpet saw extravagance, glamour and over-the-top dressing by the celebrities. The theme this year, ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’ was all about theatricalisation. The theme is based on “Notes on Camp,” an essay written in 1964 by American author Susan Sontag.“Camp is by nature subversive (...) confronting and challenging the status quo,” the Costume Institute's head curator Andrew Bolton said at a press event before the gala.

While this fundraiser event was unmistakably star-studded, quite a few big names like Beyonce, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande and George Clooney gave it a miss. The hosts this year were Anna Wintour, Harry Styles, Lady Gaga, Serena Williams and Alessandro Michele.
