The Met Gala 2019 has finally started after it had us waiting anxiously to know what celebrities had in store for the red carpet – well, it is technically the ‘pink’ carpet this year. To explain the theme , ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion,’ is going to be a tad bit difficult because this year the Met is all about aesthetic style camping.
According to Met Gala press release, Camp spans from the 17th century to today, tracing its origin from Versailles to “the queer subcultures of Europe and America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries”.
Met Gala 2019 saw some interesting thought put into this year’s theme. Even so, there were some celebrities who didn’t get it entirely right – here are some of the worst dressed celebrities of the evening.
Dressed in Dapper Dan from Gucci, model Ashley Graham sported a pink and green outfit for the Met Gala this year, but we’re not entirely sure that this is working out. It doesn’t fit into the theme of Camp for this year and is so risk-averse, we’re simply unimpressed. There is no doubt that Graham looks neat with her sleek hair-do and perfect make-up, but the outfit is ‘meh’ given the theme.
YouTuber Liza Koshy made her appearance at the Met Gala in a feathery pink ensemble with a pair of pastel footwear and glittery accessories. We couldn’t help but draw similarities between her and the Met Gala presider Anna Wintour in her pink and feathered outfit. And if we have to pick one from the both of them, there is no doubt we’re going with Wintour.
We’re thinking the ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Bodyguard’ star did not get the memo for this year’s theme for the Met Gala. Wearing a simple black suit to a charity gala that has set its theme as Camp is not the best of ideas. If you switch those boots for a more formal tone, we wouldn’t even know if he had lost his way to an award show.
The supermodel and entrepreneur has our heart on most days but today is not that day. Kloss chose a simple bodycon dress to the Met Gala 2019 – the most she accessorized was adding some flared sleeves. For Kloss’ standards, her appearance wasn’t impressive at all.
The Chinese heiress, investor, patron of the arts, and philanthropist ended up looking very much like an heiress and less like someone who is going to a charity ball with the theme as ‘Camp’. We are all for the fusion of pastel shades, but Yu chose to play safe and that’s honestly not working for us.
Director and producer Ava DuVernay sported a satin green ensemble with a random floral embroidery on the dress. The sapphire-encrusted belt doesn’t go with the green of her outfit either. We do wish she had given it more thought.
Dressed in a white full-length dress, the Portuguese model and actress sure looked gorgeous in her appearance at the Met Gala 2019, but an outfit this ordinary – of course, in comparison to what her colleagues have brought to the charity ball – we only wish she’d have at least accessorized it further.
Hey French Montana, you look like this in your music videos as well – what is new that you’re bringing to the Met Gala?
What’s up with the wings on the face, Emily? This dress is a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen as it looks like just strips of fabric put in strategic places to give the appearance of clothing. The dress designed by Peter Dundas had a skin-toned lining which made it look as if it were sheer. Oh, and does it not remind you of Cher’s past dresses?
The devil works hard but Kris Jenner works harder might ring true in most cases, but for the Met Gala 2019, her outfit failed to impress us. Dressed in a dark navy blue ensemble paired with a feathery jacket, Kris could have done better, we know she could have done better.
