Met Gala 2019 photos: Best dressed, worst dressed and so-so

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is co-chairing this year's gala with Lady Gaga, Serena Williams, Harry Styles and Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele.

Tanno says she's been prepping Gaga's skin with the product before launch, starting all the way back when Gaga started doing press for A Star Is Born, and throughout awards show season.

The theme of Camp: Notes on Fashion was inspired by Susan Sontag's 1964 essay, in which she describes it as something that shouldn't be talked about. The theme is the basis for the Costume Institute's spring exhibition. It's apparent that "camp" means different things to different people, though, as some took it to mean "campy".

See pics of Katy Perry's human chandelier outfit at the 2019 Met Gala below. That included Zendaya, whose Cinderella Tommy Hilfiger dress went aglow with the wave of a magic wand. It took him five hours to get ready. Porter stole the show at this year's mega event when he entered draped in gold and was carried on a velvet litter by six shirtless men wearing shiny gold trousers and headpieces.


"I bring my own snacks because previous year I was starving and I learned my lesson", she said.

Designed by Moschino's Jeremy Scott, it was already an impressive-looking if not highly impractical outfit.

Whether she's wearing a tracksuit, lingerie or an embellished gown that's the length of a flight of stairs, she is always and forever a queen. Then in a move which no one was expecting, she removed her black gown to reveal a body-hugging pink dress and menagerie of Tiffany & Co diamonds.

Other odd outfits included Katy Perry's chandelier dress, which to me channels Lumiere off Beauty and the Beast.
