CAMP AT THE MET GALA
The Met Gala which was formerly known as the costume institute gala (Met Ball) is an annual fundraiser gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Arts Costume Institute in New York. The event which holds on the first Monday of May, held on the 6th of may 2019. With past themes like Heavenly bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination and Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, this years theme is Camp: Notes on Fashion and as usual this leaves everybody trying to decipher what exactly it means.
Camp can basically be described as exaggeration. It simply means taking an idea that is truest to who you are, how you feel at a particular moment and how u wish to express it and pushing it to the limits of your imagination. like billy porter here
Anna Wintour, the US Vogue editor in chief chaired the event and as usual the enlisted celebrities to serve as co-chairs.Beyonce, Rihanna and Katy Perry have all previously served as co-chairs, but for this year which marks the Met Gala 71st anniversary, the honour of co-chairing went to Lady Gaga, Harry Style, Serena Williams and Alessandro Michele.
CARDI B. Cardi wore an oxblood dress made by Thom Browne, complete with half a million dollar worth of nipples. The dress was made from tulle and silk organza. The hand embroidered dress is also decorated with 30000 burned and dyed Coquet feathers. It took 35 people more than 2000 hours to create and was finished off with a bugle beaded headpiece.
