Met Gala 2019: The Camp Fire That Burned The Red Carpet
I. AM. DEAD. This year’s Met Gala theme is by far my favorite: Camp. And dear lord, did the guests deliver. From gold Windex bottles to 80s brick phones, this year’s fashion was fun, exciting, and full of surprises. Let us recap:
I mean, obviously. She made fashion history with four outfits in under 15 minutes on the steps of the Met. And they were all fantastic. I mean, what? Hats off to Brandon Maxwell.
Another obvious choice. He got carried in by six shirtless men. If that weren’t enough, just look at his stunning gold look complete with WINGS.
Can Céline do wrong ever? I’m thinking no. This look reminds me of a Vegas showgirl, but with the ultimate glow-up.
Lupita makes it onto most of my best dressed lists. I usually don’t like big accentuated shoulders but I’m all for them here.
I confess, I have a gigantic girl crush on Madelaine, and she did not disappoint. I’m obsessed with the pale seafoam gown and general airiness to her look.
I love love love this dress. It’s so unique and daring, but the soft feminine color palette brings it back down to earth.
I love the colors here, love her hair, love the pants, love the sleeves, just a general “yes” to the whole thing.
Literally drooling over this down. She looks like a total rock star-turned-super villain and I am here for it.
I don’t know how he pulled all of this off but then again, if anyone could, it would be Hamish Bowles.
I love all of this. The rhinestone glasses, the pink cowboy hat, the untucked shirt. It’s just all perfect.
I’m sorry, I just wasn’t feeling the flamenco number. I know he was a favorite for many, but whatever was going on this those high-waisted pants just didn’t sit well with me.
I think Kris went a little overboard and ended up too kitsch.
This was a tough one for me because her look fits in so well with the theme. However, I think there’s a way to make camp still very chic and this was not it. However, I did hear that she brought fried chicken in her purse and that is everything.
Did she lose her way to the North Pole? I love Gucci and I love Dapper Dan but… no to all of this.
I LOVE that he was going for a Liberace thing, but the color palette is not working for me. It blends in with his skin tone and into the pink carpet.
While I love the furry green coat, I feel as though she was going simply for shock factor with this outfit. And after Gaga, this one fell flat.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about a big bow. But the fit on her hips is a little strange and drowns her a bit.
I’ve never been a fan of draping like this, and the colors remind me of Maleficent in a bad way.
Can somebody just explain to me what she’s going for? Some fort of dominatrix thing? I can get on board with the hair, but the dress looks like when you’d make a wedding dress out of toilet paper as a kid.
It’s not that I don’t like this dress, I honestly would love to wear it. It’s just that it’s so boring for a theme that allows so much creativity and fun.
