The biggest event in fashion occurred last night and it was definitely one for the books: the 2019 annual Met Gala! Every year, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York hosts its highly anticipated Met Gala event where all the stars grace the red carpet in their best interpretations of the preset theme. This year’s theme was “Camp: Notes on Fashion” which left many to question: what is camp?
The 2019 Met Gala theme, “Camp”, is meant to explore the exaggerated and “over-the-top” side of fashion. Inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay called Notes On Camp, she defined the term as the “love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration”. This theme is more appropriate now than ever as many celebrities such as RuPaul, Billy Porter, Lil Kim, and Cardi B have been known to exemplify the notion of over-the-top fashion.
