The Met Gala is tonight and this year’s theme is Camp. Camp style is defined as an aesthetic style and sensibility that regards something as appealing because of its bad taste and ironic value. In a nod to tonight’s theme, we’re highlighting some of the most Iconic Celebrities who have served us Camp so effortlessly over the years.
