Met Gala 2019 / Camp: Notes on Fashion

Tuesday, May 7, 2019

The first Monday in May is also known as Met Gala Monday. The Met Gala is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York City. Each year's event celebrates the theme of that year's Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night. The theme of 2019 was Camp: Notes on Fashion.

“The essence of camp is its love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration. The hallmark of camp is the spirit of extravagance. Camp is a woman walking around in a dress made of 3 million feathers.” - Susan Sontag

Another one of my favorite looks - the more tulle the better.

Barbie in the sixties vibe and I'm loving it.
