First Monday In May: Met Gala 2019 Best Dressed

Who is ready to camp? And I don’t mean in the woods in a tent. I mean get funky with your fashion, which was the theme of this years Met Gala – Camp: Notes on Fashion. If mixing the word camp with fashion makes you think of hiking gear, let me set the record straight since it is far from that. Camp is almost the exact opposite of natural. It’s what many in pop culture would say is “so bad, it’s good.” Camp is a commitment, it’s humor and eccentricity in fashion, often done in excess, but in a smart way. As Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue and chair of the Met Gala has said, “camp goes all the way from kings to drag queens.”

This year the pink carpet (yes, it was pink!) began with the co-chairs of the gala – Lady Gaga, Serena Williams, Harry Styles and Alessandro Michele from Gucci. The co-chairs are handpicked by Anna, and not only do they perform during the gala, they also must stand and greet every guest as they arrive. And if you are thinking this is just another night for celebs to get dressed up and party, think again. The Met Gala, since being chaired by Anna Wintour, has raised more than $120 million dollars for the Costume Institute at The Met.

The best dressed list below is long, and while that may seem like it isn’t a true “best dressed list,” I can assure you it is. With over 500 guests invited to the Met Gala, these fashion junkies were truly the best of the best on fashion’s biggest night. They embodied the theme, looked flawless and and walked that pink carpet in total style.

    1. I loved all the pink too Carla, so fun! Great post on your blog. Fun to read stuff from a fellow Michigander. I am from Flushing originally, but like you moved out of the state.
