The much-awaited night just came and viewers couldn’t have enough of it!
The Met Gala 2019 extravaganza, which was already blowing away our minds, left us mesmerized when some of the most popular celebrities walked on the pink carpet of the main event in their lavish outfits. Several celebrities came down to the New York City to add glitters to the glamorous fundraiser event.
Like every year, this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute benefit was also based on a theme — “Camp: Notes on Fashion” — and the celebrities represented their own interpretation of it. While some were highly admired, some couldn’t do justice, and the rest became a meme on the internet.
Considering the theme, which is way too complex to resolve, we had to expect the unexpected!
Let’s look at the varied interpretations that some of our favorite stars represented at the Met Gala 2019:
What stormed the internet was the multiple number of outfits that singer Lady Gaga managed to represent during the event. Walking with a photographer and her makeup artists, the co-host at the event changed four attires to reveal her final look
The second co-host, the former “One Direction” member, Harry Styles came in all black. Wearing a sheer top, the singer paired it with high-waisted trousers. However, the highlight of his look was the fancy earring that he carried on his latest piercing.
Another extravagant look was Billy Porter’s golden bodysuit and wings, which was a tribute to a look from the 1975 Diana Ross film “Mahogany”.
Met Gala 2019’s third co-host, Serena Williams walked the pink carpet in a neon yellow gown. Her look stood out, as she represented her identity by carrying matching Nike trainers.
Another mind-blowing look was of Katy Perry, who came as a chandelier. With a headpiece weighing 40 pounds, the singer forced people to ask how she would sit down. However, as playful as ever, Perry replied, “You don’t sit down at the Met,” and walked away singing Sia’s 2014 hit track, “Chandelier”.
Anna Wintour, the Vogue editor-in-chief walked in the last Chanel dress that Karl Lagerfeld designed for her. When asked about what the theme “camp” means, she said, “Having fun!
While the celebrities graced the pink carpet in their stunning perceptions of the Met Gala 2019 theme, the Met Gala after-party was no where disappointing.
Vogue announced some of the best dressed guest at the after-party, including: Katy Perry, Bella Hadid, Jared Leto, Dua Lipa, Lupita Nyong’o, Miley Cyrus, Celine Dion, Hailee Steinfeld, Jeremy Scott and Gwen Stefani, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas, Winnie Harlow, Sienna Miller, and others.
The 2019 Met Gala ended too soon, but people are still not able to get over the stunning night and their favorite stars. The event this year raised a record-breaking amount of $15 million, which will remain the main source of funding for the exhibitions, acquisitions, publications and capital improvements till next year.
