What Is the Met Gala Theme for 2019?
The Met Gala theme 2019 is "Camp: Notes on Fashion."
The excitement for the 71st Costume Institute Gala at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art is real – we can't wait to see what our fave celebrities are going to wear to the event because the theme of camp will give stars like Kim Kardashian and Sarah Jessica Parker the opportunity to exaggerate their signature style.
Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton told Vogue, "Camp has become increasingly more mainstream in its pluralities — political camp, queer camp, pop camp, the conflation of high and low, the idea that there is no such thing as originality."
“Camp has been described as style without content, but I think you’ve got to be incredibly sophisticated to understand camp — look at Yves Saint Laurent and Marc Jacobs," he added.
