Met Gala: Best Fashion From Lady Gaga to Kendall and Kylie Jenner

The glitz was on full volume Monday night as celebrities showcased their best interpretation of camp at the Met Gala.

The Costume Institute Gala, put on annually by Vogue’s Anna Wintour on the first Monday of May, brought both wonky and chic looks to the carpet this year as attendees tried to fit the this year’s theme: “Camp: Notes on High Fashion.” In reference to Susan Sontag’s 1968 essay “Notes on Camp,” in which she gives a variety of definitions of the word “camp,” the event’s theme was meant to bring out exaggerated, artistic, and out-of-the-box sartorial choices.

And viewers were certainly not left disappointed. From Jared Leto holding his own fake severed head as an accessory, Katy Perry showing up as a real-life chandelier, and Lady Gaga making four outfit changes before even entering the museum, the theme was taken seriously by most. Other notable outfits included Lena Waithe’s custom suit which read “Black Drag Queens Invented Camp,” alongside Diana Ross lyrics serving as pinstripes, and Billy Porter’s Egyptian-inspired catsuit which made its appearance when the Tony Award winner was carried onto the carpet like a king.
