The Met Gala, the biggest fashion event of the year, took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York on Monday.
This year’s theme was “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” inspired by the essay “Notes on Camp” by Susan Sontag.
According to Sontag, camp is “love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration… style at the expense of content… the triumph of the epicene style.”
Below are some highlights of celebrities’ best interpretations of camp.
