The 82 Campiest Looks From the 2019 Met Gala
Let's go camping!
These Attendees Went Full Camp at the 2019 Met Gala
As with every first Monday in May, the coveted Met Gala took place last night.
Many of them did, though most opted for a fitted black suit or simply flowing dress. However, there were a handful of looks that went full camp.
We've rounded up the campiest looks for you to feast your eyes on from the 2019 Met Gala. So buckle up, because we're going camping!
1. Billy Porter
Our favorite look of the night was definitely Billy Porter's "Old Testament Realness." From being carried onto the carpet by a harem of gold-plated men to showing off his theatrical wings, he brought it. This looks is untouchable.
2. Katy Perry
Bringing the light in the dark world, Katy Perry went full camp with her chandelier ensemble. Inside, she transformed into a hamburger. We're not sure which is campier.
3. Lady Gaga
As one of the co-chairs for the Met and someone who has been camp for a large majority of their career, we expected a lot from Lady Gaga. Lucky for us, the multi-hyphenate brought it to the pink carpet, offering four different looks in under five minutes. That's how you do it, folks.
4. Serena Williams
Another co-chair for the event, Serena Williams was a vision in a neon yellow frock with matching Nike shoes to boot. The mix of over-the-top eleganza and stylish comfort was everything.
5. Jared Leto
Jared Leto knew there was a price on his head, so he paid it to pull off this look. Hats off (or should we say heads off) to you, sir.
Zendaya pulled a bippity boppity boo on the Met Gala steps during her entrance. We're still not quite over this.
7. Michael Urie
Not many attendees understood the theme or stuck with it to the fullest extent quite like Michael Urie. When we think of camp, this is exactly what we picture.
8. Ezra Miller
Ezra Miller offered up a costume change in the most Ezra Miller way possible. We only have eyes for this look.
9. Hamish Bowles
Hamish Bowles is the International Editor at Large for Vogue, meaning he knows better than anyone what camp is and how to exude that in a way that works for him. We weren't worried about that, but we were pleasantly thrilled at his colorful display on the carpet. Purple is the new black.

Category is... Rainbow Zebra Realness. Though we expected a little bit more from Ru, this look was still superior to the boring black tuxedos most males wore on the carpet.
This is the dawning of the age of Aquaria. We're not sure what she's wearing, but we know it's camp.
17. Violet Chachki
