It’s that time of the year again where celebrities from all corners of the world gather together to celebrate the artistry of fashion. The MET Gala is a charity event that happens every year and celebrities get the chance to show off their sense of style and adventure. While many stars take the safe route, individuals like Rihanna and Lady Gaga aren’t afraid to experiment. It seems like Lady Gaga has no intention of holding back this year either, and wants to start of the MET Gala season with a bang.
She wowed everyone by stepping out in a short, ruffled dress from the Marc Jacobs runway collection of 2019. The black and white striped dress was accessorizedby a tall black hat that would’ve been amiss at a Derby. She wore black tights and black platform combat boots, to complement the outfit and completedthe ensemble with a tiny black purse.
Lady Gaga carried the outfit with characteristic aplomb when she attended the pre-MET Gala party in New York. Her social media posts indicate that preparations for the Gala are in full swing. She wore a short lemon-printed dress just a few days ago with the caption-“Met Gala here we come. Destination ‘Camp,’ so excited to co-chair Anna’s event.”
This year’s MET Gala theme is Camp, which refers to a cheesy, over the top style. The Gala has a different theme each year and most attendees are fastidious about honoring that theme. Last year’s theme was “Heavenly Bodies – Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” All the celebrities wore dresses inspired by Catholic art and architecture. The highlights of the event were Rihanna, Blake Lively, Priyanka Chopra, and several other celebrities.
This year’s theme isn’t as controversial as last year,although it is a little confusing. Most celebrities who were asked to describe Camp and its aesthetic failed to do so. Everyone has different interpretations of Camp, which will make this year’s MET Gala all the more fascinating. Experienced fashionistas agree that if you want to get a good idea of what Camp is like, you should consider Gucci. Their collections are often unapologetically campy without being too over-the-top.
Lady Gaga’s Preparations
Lady Gaga has never been one to take the easy way out when it comes to fashion. She has been notorious for pulling off some highly controversial looks. Her style has become more subdued in recent years, but you can still see the Gaga flair in it. She has been trying to get back into the New York Groove in recent days.
Lady Gaga is one of the co-hosts of the Gala along with the likes of Harry Styles, Alessandro Michele, and Serena Williams. Anna Wintour will be at the helm of the event as always and you can expect the usual line of celebrities to show up for it.
The Most Anticipated Guests
Some guests truly shine at the MET Gala and most fans have been speculating over their looks for days. Some of the most anticipated attendees include Harry Styles, Anna Wintour, Janelle Monae, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Serena Williams, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, and Chadwick Boseman. These celebrities are known to stick with the theme each year and pull off some truly noteworthy looks.
We might see a repeat of Rihanna’s iconic Rei Kawakubo look or Beyonce’s metallic sheath dress. Lady Gaga has pulled off several campy looks throughout her career and there’s no doubt she will pull off one this year as well. It is just a matter of determining how far she will push the boundaries at the MET Gala.
