The Met Gala is the biggest fashion and celebrity event of the year – and the 2019 party could be the most extravagant yet.
The Metropolitan Museum Of Art has announced that the theme of the 2019 Met Gala will be Camp: Notes on Fashion.
And no, we dont mean tents, bonfires and dry shampoo – we mean the Strictly, sequins, Alan Carr, RuPauls Drag Race, Jane McDonald kind of camp.
We. Are. Living.
The event will take its inspiration from Susan Sontags 1964 essay, in which she defines all things camp as the love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration.
Andrew Bolton, Costume Institute curator said: We are going through an extreme camp moment. It felt very relevant to the cultural conversation to look at what is often dismissed as empty frivolity but can be actually a very sophisticated and powerful political tool, especially for marginalised cultures.
Whether its pop camp, queer camp, high camp or political camp – Trump is a very camp figure – I think its very timely.
Gaga is a Met Gala pro, constantly serving over-the-top looks at the fundraiser; while Serena Williams has been dabbling even more in fashion over the past year.
More: Harry Styles
Meanwhile, Harry is known for his gender-fluid suits and boundary-pushing looks, so we cannot wait to see what he comes up with.
The 2019 Met Gala, sponsored by Gucci, will take place on 6 May 2019.
