The 2019 Met Gala has come and gone, but we are still in awe with the dresses from different celebrities, who did their best to incorporate the theme of the event into their clothing.
The theme for this year’s gala was “Camp”. One would think that camp meant outdoors or fishing or something that has to do with nature, but no that is not the case. Camp in this sense means doing a lot of crazy outfit, going outside your comfort zone and embracing that outside the box daring to push the envelope beyond expectations.
A lot of celebrities showed in and showed at this year’s gala but here are the top 8 looks.
1) Lady Gaga’s many looks:
Lady Gaga is known for her strangeness and innovative fashion sense which is probably one of the reasons she was picked as one of the five hosts of the Met Gala and oh boy! she did not disappoint.She first came out on the pink carpet in a fuchsia dress which had a big train and a number of suit wearing men who were all holding an umbrella but it did not end there. She, after walking up and down the stairs, removed her first dress to reveal a black gown with unequal neck line and a side bustle which she later shed to show a pink V neck grown. She eventually stripped down to her black under wears to reveal her banging body. She put on a show in front of the media for each of her dress reveal.
2) Cardi B Red dress:
One could say that the rapper Cardi B brought the red carpet to the pink carpet. The rapper was dressed in a red feathered enormous gown which was made by the designer Thom Browne. She completed her look with a helmet looking head accessory. She sure made me want to say ‘i like it like that’
3) Kim Kardashian West dripping brown grown:
Kim did not disappoint as she came out in a brown tight and fitted gown, which was covered in little crystals all over it. The crystal looked like little drops of water against a sunlight reflection backdrop which further exposed the reality star’s Cleopatra goddess figure she is known for.
4) Katy Perry chandelier dress:
Katy Perry stepped out wearing a Moschino chandelier dress. She had candles with light on them on her dress and she looked stunning, glowing like a ballroom center piece for all eyes to fest on.
5) Nicki Minaj ballerina pink grown:
This was one of my favourite looks in this year’s Met Gala. Nicki is the queen of camp but this year she toned it down and gave us a ballerina inspired pink gown (some may argue that it gives off a prom vibe) but she really held it together and dominated the pink.
6) Billy Porter’s bird look:
Billy Porter brought forth his unique style, dressed in gold, was carried onto the pink carpet on a palanquin. His dress was an Egyptian inspired look with gilded wings.
7) Celine Dion’s silver grown:
Celine Dion arrived the Met Gala covered in silver, her gown which was made by Oscar de la Renta had a lot of strides on it. The singer completed the look with a hair accessory which was a gold like peacock feather crown by the milliner Noel Stewart.
8) Serena Williams yellow grown:
Serena William did not disappoint as she arrived to the pink carpet in an all yellow gown -the grown had little butterfly shaped pieces on them. To top off her look, the athlete wore a yellow Nike sneakers underneath her gown and was fierce as a champion showing it off to the world.
