Every year, on the first Monday of May, a night of total fashion extravaganza takes place in the form of the Met Gala. The fashion fundraiser is held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute, New York and sees the crème da la crème of Hollywood donning the best of outfits interpreting the theme of the event. This year’s theme was ‘Camp: Notes On Fashion’. Before you assume it has anything to do with camping, cargo pants and boots, let us explain what ‘Camp’ actually means. It is actually everything unnatural, over-the-top and heavily made up. The Met Gala press release defines it as “a style which is somewhat difficult to define but includes elements of irony, humour, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality, and exaggeration…”
No wonder, the looks we spotted were so iridescent, enchanting and overstated. Scroll down as we list our favourite beauty looks from the red carpet of Met Gala 2019...
Zendaya turned a modern-day Cinderella in a blue light-up ball gown. She teamed this look, which looked like it was straight out of a fairy tale, with pastel blue eye makeup, an updo with a hairband and a tiny carriage purse.
JLo outshined all in a shimmery silver fringe gown from Versace that came with a veil. The purple smokey eyes and nude pout are totally on-point with her bling-y look.
DP brought Barbie back to life in a Zac Posen metallic pink gown, big poufy hair and an embellished hair piece and jaw dropping makeup. We are crushing over her bold winged eye makeup and bold burgundy lips.
The supermodel walked the red carpet looking like a glamourous show girl in a bright orange feather gown by Versace. Her gravity defying lashes, glossy nude lips and sleek updo tied the whole look together.
Halsey brought warrior princess back to life in a glamorous avatar in a Prabal Gurung red ensemble. Her look was all the more gorgeous with crimped hair, bronzed cheeks and gold shimmery eyes.
Kylie matched her hair with her dress yet again, and totally pulled it off. She sported purple hair to go with her feather mermaid gown from Versace and looked incredibly gorgeous.
The Riverdale star arrived in style in a blue dress with exaggerated sleeves and big hair adorned with a pink floral head piece. She slayed in the pink monochrome makeup and looked like a dream.
We saved the best for the last. The campiest look yet, it had to be rocked by none other than the Queen of Pop, Lady Gaga. Her OTT golden eyelashes, bright pink lips and that big AF bow all scream EXTRA. And the fact that she changed costume 4 times in under 15 minutes… well, that’s just Lady Gaga for you!
