Met Gala Best Dressed

Grace Hager, Staff Writer

The Met Gala is an annual fundraising to benefit the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. Celebrities are formally invited to attend every year, and dress according to a certain theme. This year, the theme of the Met Gala was ‘camp.’ Camp was a confusing theme for some this year, but the actual meaning of camp is “a certain mode of aestheticism” or, in other terms, being as truly yourself as possible. Here are some that made my best dressed list for the 2019 Met Gala.

Anna Wintour at the Met Gala.


Anna Wintour: as the editor in chief of Vogue, who plans the Met Gala, Anna had to make a grand entrance. This year she wore a beautiful beaded silhouette and feather cape designed by Karl Lagerfeld before his tragic passing earlier this year.






Zendaya goes Disney princess for the Met Gala.

Zendaya: The former Disney Star graced the pink carpet of The Met by embodying                      Cinderella herself. Her dress was designed by Tommy Hilfiger, complete by actually                       lighting up. She walked the carpet with her stylist Law Roach, who was dressed as a fairy godmother.





Darren Criss interprets “camp” for the Met Gala.


Darren Criss: This actor did not shy away from truly embodying the term ‘camp’. Criss wore a custom Balmain suit and accented that with some colorful eye makeup.



Billy Porter makes a statement at the Met Gala.

Billy Porter: Billy Porter is known, for always making an entrance at any event. After making

a dramatic appearance in a half suit, half ball gown dress at the Oscars, he had to live up to the challenge. He showed up to the Met Gala in head to toe gold made by The Blonds, accompanied by 6 men carrying him in on a litter. Porter certainly kept things interesting this year.
