One of the fashion world’s biggest events and fundraisers has taken over the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, showcasing a variety of extraordinary and evocative designs.

This year, the Met Gala celebrates its 71st anniversary and the launch of a pivotal exhibition opening May 9 —  “Camp: Notes on Fashion.”

Named in reference to a 1964 essay by Susan Sontag, the exhibition is set to explore more than 250 objects dating from the 17th century to the present, and the origins of camp’s aesthetic.

“We always try to come up with a theme that speaks to the zeitgeist and reflects the times in which we’re living. But camp resonated to me beyond what we’re seeing socially and culturally. Certain art forms better lend themselves to camp more than others, and fashion is one of them,” Andrew Bolton, the Wendy Yu curator in charge of the Costume Institute, told Architectural Digest.

Celebrities dressed in couture, interpreting their meaning of the theme. Co-host of the evening, Lady Gaga, pulled out all the stops on the red carpet with not one but four outfits.

Billy Porter made the most elegant, Ancient Egypt-inspired entrance by arriving on a litter raised up by shirtless men sporting golden pants accessories. Meanwhile, Jared Leto carried a replica of his own head under his arm — beard and all.

Before we say any more, here’s a look at the celebrities who held the Met Gala 2019 camp theme down.
