Ah, the Met Gala. Each year, on the first Monday in May, the top epithets in fashion and entertainment amas to celebrate how rich and red-hot they are, and it’s always a treat. I signify, it’s technically a fundraiser, but we’re all here for the attires. Year after year, the world’s best decorators commit us some serious couture lookings based on whatever the topic is, and this year was no different. The thing is, this year’s theme (< em> Camp: Note on Fashion ) em> was kind of an enigma. What exactly is camp? It’s hard to describe, but it’s basically an artistry that celebrates all things wild, over the top, ironic, and tacky. No, it doesn’t have anything to do with tie-dye or bonfires. Basically, the only rule for this year’s red carpet was to not be bearing. Voices simple, but some of the stars had more trouble than you’d envisage (* cough* Kim Kardashian ), and that’s principally who established the worst end of the listing. None of these people looked bad, per se, but even worse garmented mainly simply borne us. Sadly, Rihanna was not in attendance, but even she did a better position than some of these snoozes. Here’s how everyone else did, for better or for worse.
Best: Lena Waithe
If you’re just learning about camp for the first time, the back of Lena Waithe’s blazer is a good place to start. Like so many things in pop culture today, the roots of what we now think of as “camp” be traced to black homosexual and drag culture, begin in the 1960 s. Cultural movements develop and transformation naturally through time, but it’s important to remember and pay tribute to those who came before us. For this important statement, Lena instantaneously had one of very good searches of the night.
Worst: Kim Kardashian
Kim is kind of the worst at the Met Gala in general because she always gazes red-hot, but that’s not the phase. She never pushes the border. This year, she merely trod straight out of her Vogue covering shoot and wore that exact look to the Met Gala. Seriously, only look at this sh* t:
For someone who does the most 364 periods out of the year, I’ll never get why Kim choice this day of the working day to do less.
Best: Katy Perry
Whether you like Katy Perry or not, when it comes to camp, she understands the job. I mean, she’s spent 95% of her vocation dressed as various types of food, so this girl hasn’t met an over-the-top costume she doesn’t like. Most years at the Met Gala Katy looks like an idiot, but this year looking like an idiot was basically the theme, so she nailed it. She looks like Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast had a major glow-up( forgivenes the pun ), and I’m 100% here for it. I’m desperate to know how she went to the bathroom in this dress, or moved at all without impaling anyone, though. Beauty is ache!
Worst: Ashley Graham
For the last time, THE THEME IS CAMP. Do something crazy. The time to come in a Gucci logo dress, lookin’ like your grandma’s strawberry sucking candy, was not today. She seems lovely, and her body is obviously to die for, but that’s not the point. Where is the DRAMA? This was a swing and a miss.
Best: Lady Gaga
Usually Tom Sandoval is the one who takes a party theme the most seriously, but it was all about Gaga at the Met Gala. Honestly, I adore all of these attires, and I especially desire the progression from” family dinner with your mothers” to” darknes out with your lovers the second largest your parents lowering you off at your friend’s .” My favorite look is probably the first one, because it reminds me of a couture comforter. But I anticipate I’m going to start bringing a portable telephone from 1987 everywhere.
Look, Halsey is gorgeous and so talented, and I don’t hate what she’s wearing–in fact, I is likely to be learn Taylor Swift copying it for the next bestows show–but wearing a large skirt does not immediately mean you have successfully done camp. Halsey looks like Jafar set her under his incantation, then dressed her. Hourglass sold separately, I assume.
Best: Billy Porter

Much like when he wore a tuxedo gown to the Oscars this year, Billy Porter proved again that he known to be to make a f* cking statement on a red carpet. I’m sure everyone else is kicking themselves that they didn’t think t0 be carried in by a crew of lovely males( me at all hours ), and the moment only got better when he exposed the huge gold wings on his outfit. Please make sure Billy is on the invite roll for every red carpet until the end of time, because he’s the only thing hold me awake for these things.
Worst: Kris Jenner
