Met Gala 2019: Celebrities that took the 'camp' theme very literally
Who was a little more 'camping' than 'camp' at fashion's biggest event?
There is no doubt that Katy Perry, Harry Styles and Lady Gaga brought flamboyance to the 2019 Met Gala, in line with its theme, Camp: Notes on Fashion.
But it seems that the word "camp" may have confused a star or two, who looked dressed more for a forest adventure than an evening fund-raising for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute.
It's important to note that I have spent exactly zero nights of my life sleeping in the great outdoors, so my interpretation of camping equipment may be way off ... but here I round up the stars who may have missed the point.
It may be Prada, but that, Frank, is a windbreaker and much more suited to a day in the great outdoors than for the Super Bowl of fashion. Easy mistake.
There is no doubt that Gaga is flamboyant: she is, after all, the Queen of Camp. But Stefani Germanotta is also dressed as an actual tent – a family of four could comfortably camp out in that thing. The umbrellas are simply sensible packing for unpredictable weather conditions.
She may have made like Rihanna with her giant train on the steps, but what is it her dress is made of? That looks an awful lot like a camper's best friend, the humble sleeping bag, to me.
Perhaps not dressed for the actual great outdoors, but Kim Kardashian does seem to be soaked through after being caught unawares in a rainstorm. A classic camping mistake.
Model, Amber Valletta, came as an actual bush...
Do people eat burgers around the campfire? I imagine they probably do. After changing out of her chandelier-inspired outfit, Perry donned a hyper-realistic burger suit.
It looks as though the model is wearing a giant Graham cracker, the foundation of campfire staple, s'mores.
Face of camp, Celine Dion, originally read the invite as an evening of s'mores and tent pegs.
"At first I was a little bit confused when I heard 'camp,'" Dion told E! News. "I thought it meant 'camping'. We're going camping! We're going to be at the Met and everyone is going to stay and sleep all night together. But, no."
In the end, however, she nailed the flamboyant camp theme with ease.
