Fashion enthusiasts, we have arrived at the time of year yet again.  On Monday the 2019 Met Gala took place at the renowned Metropolitan Museum of Artin the heart of New York City.  This year’s theme is based around the exhibition Camp: Notes of Fashion. Given these year’s chosen theme we were expecting to see larger than life looks, and several celebrities surpassed our expectations.  Check some of the looks that came down the flamingo pink carpet.

We knew this year’s co-host wouldn’t have issues with interpreting the theme.  Photographers clamored to get pics of her four looks. Yes, you read that right.

We were looking forward to her look and she didn’t disappoint.

That’s just a sample of some of the looks.  As usual, some celebs effortlessly nailed the theme while some just did their own thing.  Either way, we couldn’t stop talking about them.  We will see you for next year’s Gala.

Camp: Notes of Fashion exhibition will run from May 9-September 8, 2019 at The Met.   Members will receive a special preview on May 8th.
