2019 MET Gala – ‘Camp’ Notes on Fashion

It is THE fashion event of the year and this year the aesthetic is going to be next level. The 2019 theme is a play on Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay ‘Notes on Camp’. As style maven Coco Chanel once said “In order to be irreplaceable one must be different.” And WOW peeps – this year did not disappoint. I’m not bored that is for certain.

We always focus on the women so I’m going to smash stereotypes here and say that this year it was all about the MEN. The guys at this years Gala really stepped up their game – aka they didn’t wear a boring black suit. Slow clap Ryan Murphy & Jordan Roth, slow clap.

Who knew right? I mean there were iconic looks from a couple of the women. I’m looking at you Gaga (outfit change heaven) and Celine (general legend) but on balance its the men who hit it out of the park.

But from Harry Styles to Hamish Bowles the men killed it in the fashion stakes.

Special mentions to Laverne Cox and Serena Williams for being generally extra.
