  • Published at 06:53 pm May 8th, 2019

Met Gala, an annual and exclusive extravaganza for the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) in New York, is considered one of the world's biggest  events in the fashion industry.

Met Gala 2019 was as epic as every year, with A-list celebrities donning the glitziest and "campiest" attires. This year the theme was "Camp: Notes on Fashion," to refer to an upcoming exhibition at the Met, inspired by US writer and political activist Susan Sontag's 1964 essay, "Notes on Camp." The outfits this year were therefore, like the exhibition, based on "irony, humour, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality and exaggeration."This annual and exclusive extravaganza for the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) in New York, is considered one of the world's biggest  events in the fashion industry.
