The Most **EXTRA** Lewks At The Met Gala 2019: CAMP
The best Monday of 2019 (that you still have to work on) has come and gone after the 2019 Met Gala took over New York City (and the internet) on May 6, 2019. The gala, which is a benefit for The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, takes place every year with a different theme and this year was “CAMP: Notes on Fashion.” For those of you who think “khaki shorts and navy blue tee-shirts” when you hear “camp,” you’re not alone. (In fact, Tiffany Haddish said she was going to be wearing a white tank until someone told her what the Met Gala-approved meaning of “camp” is). Essentially, camp is when something’s so over-the-top bordering on ironic that it’s trendy. (Think TV shows like Glee and Riverdale.) IMO, the Costume Institute wanted to make the theme “so extra” but had to make it sound classy and high-brow — which is campy in and of itself.
We’re breaking down the most extra lewks from The Met Gala 2019, showing you which celebrities really got the theme.
