This year’s theme – “Camp: Notes on Fashion” is basically inception, right? I mean, theatrical, over-the-top, exaggerated style is pretty much what anyone would envision when talking about the Met Gala anyway. So…maybe it would have been served better to just take a themeless year? Who knows.
One thing’s for sure, this year saw some wild red carpet moments. Check out the most exciting looks…
Ashley Graham ~ Jacket and Boots/Leggings: Gucci x Dapper Dan // Earrings: Jack Vartanian
Her legs are looking stellar in that blazer dress. Dapper Dan knows how to make Gucci’s maximalism just pop.
Lady Gaga ~ Gown(s): Brandon Maxwell
Billy Porter ~ Outfit: The Blonds // Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti
Nichapat Suphap ~ Gown: Tomo Koizumi
I am so happy this made it onto the Met red carpet!!!
Awkwafina ~ Gown, Shoes, and Bag: Altuzarra // Jewelry: Bulgari
Jordan Roth ~ Outfit: Iris van Herpen
Disturbing or inspiring? Both?
Charli XCX ~ Gown: Jean Paul Gaultier // Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Laverne Cox ~ Gown: Christian Siriano // Earrings: Anabela Chan // Rings: Le Vian
Laverne and her whole team win top scores tonight.
Saoirse Ronan ~ Gown: Gucci
This gown is total 🔥 🔥 .

Sara Sampaio ~ Gown: August Getty // Shoes: Aquazzura // Clutch: Jimmy Choo // Jewelry: Lorraine Schwartz
Regina Hall ~ Gown and Clutch: Gucci x Dapper Dan // Jewelry: EFFY and Sara Weinstock

I’m sure doors, bathrooms, and seats are tricky.

Rachel Brosnahan ~ Gown: Erdem // Shoes: Christian Louboutin // Jewelry: Selim Mouzannar
Anna Wintour ~ Gown: Chanel
Hamish Bowles ~ Outfit: Maison Margiela by John Galliano

Mindy Kaling ~ Gown: Moschino // Shoes: Casadei // Jewelry: David Webb
Florence Welch ~ Gown: Gucci
Kris Jenner ~ Outfit: Tommy Hilfiger
Madelaine Petsch ~ Dress: Jean Paul Gaultier // Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Total ethereal beauty. The pick up on one side is actually very clever, and I like the fact that it’s off center.
Taylor Hill ~ Gown: Ralph Lauren // Jewelry: Butani and Yvan Tufenkjian
Yara Shahidi ~ Outfit: Prada // Jewelry: David Webb
Natasha Lyonne ~ Jumpsuit: Jean Paul Gaultier // Shoes: Jimmy Choo // Jewelry: David Webb and Ilene Joy
This is an AMEN from me! The jumpsuit is everything, and Natasha’s makeup screams “creature ooooooof the night!”
Constance Wu ~ Gown: Marchesa
Nicki Minaj ~ Gown: Prabal Gurung
Now this is a statement dress with a crystal encrusted mini dress and billowing train. Just make sure the girls stay secured.
Georgina Chapman ~ Gown: Marchesa
Welcome back to Chapman, who made her first red carpet appearance since the scandal with her estranged husband, Harvey Weinstein. She was iced out of the social scene, and it’s nice to see her back.
Halsey ~ Gown: Prabal Gurung // Shoes: Brother Vellies // Jewelry: Jennifer Fisher
Elle Fanning ~ Outfit: Miu Miu
Emma Roberts ~ Gown: Giambattista Valli // Shoes: Jimmy Choo // Jewelry: Irene Neuwirth
Kim Kardashian ~ Dress: Mugler
This has to be my favorite “naked dress” worn by Kim Kardashian. I can’t say I’m a huge fan, but I have to admit, this look is aahhhhhhmazing. Mugler stepped it up with the falling water drop crystals so it she actually got the “wet” look she’s always going for.
Ciara ~ Gown: Dundas // Jewelry: Lorraine Schwartz
Wow, wow, wow. The hair, the green against her skin, the cutouts, her Amazon figure, just all of it, wow!
Deepika Padukone ~ Gown: Zac Posen
This is princess eaten by a princess.
Salma Hayek ~ Gown: Gucci // Jewelry: Fred Leighton
Doutzen Kroes ~ Gown: Giambattista Valli // Shoes: Alexandre Birman

Anyone for a little Breakfast at Tiffany’s?
Lily Collins ~ Gown: Giambattista Valli // Clutch: Jimmy Choo // Jewelry: Cartier
Camila Mendes ~ Gown: Prabal Gurung
Ezra Miller ~ Outfit: Riccardo Tisci for Burberry // Jewelry: Tiffany and Co.
Divine, dizzying, and disturbing. I’d say that’s camp.
Jennifer Lopez ~ Gown: Versace // Jewelry: Harry Winston
I’m telling you, they put a butt pad on JLo. She arrived with the Jenner-Kardashian clan, and I’m 90% sure of it after reviewing all the photos. Plus they trained her how to pose, but some (most) of them just weren’t working out. These were some of the best.
Janelle Monae ~ Outfit: Christian Siriano // Shoes: Christian Louboutin // Jewelry: Hanut Singh
This has Janelle Monae’s signature pop art written all over it. I recognized the look before I could even see her face! Love this girl’s sense of sartorial adventure.
Tracee Ellis Ross ~ Gown: Moschino // Shoes: Jimmy Choo // Jewelry: Tiffany and Co.
Cardi B ~ Gown: Thom Browne
How many lbs of sweat do you think Cardi lost last night? And it was allllllll worth it.
Gal Gadot ~ Outfit: Givenchy by Clare Waight Keller
Gwen Stefani ~ Outfit: Moschino by Jeremy Scott // Shoes: Christian Louboutin // Jewelry: EFFY
Gwen definitely has some Madonna Vogue coming out here.

Gucci just can’t let go of their head fascination!
Gigi Hadid ~ Outfit: Michael Kors // Jewelry: Lorraine Schwartz
Julianne Moore ~ Gown: Valentino // Jewelry: Chopard
Kerry Washington ~ Gown: Tory Burch // Shoes: Casadei // Jewelry and Headband: Lorraine Schwartz
Kacey Musgraves ~ Outfit: Moschino // Shoes: Aldo // Jewelry: Forevermark
I have to say, this is eerily doll-like. She even has the facial expressions down. Do you think that’s practice or Botox?
Cara Delevingne ~ Outfit: Dior // Jewelry: Harry Kotlar and Maxior
That eyeball and teeth headpiece is CRAZY!
Penelope Cruz ~ Gown: Chanel // Shoes: Christian Louboutin // Bag: Chanel // Jewelry: Atelier Swarovski
Katie Holmes ~ Gown: Zac Posen // Shoes: Jimmy Choo // Clutch: Tyler Ellis // Jewelry: Lorraine Schwartz
So gorgeous. I love the gown itself, and the shoulder piece adds that bit of excitement. It could have gone further, but I’m just glad to see Katie out on the red carpet looking beautiful.
Zendaya ~ Gown: Tommy Hilfiger
Uhhhh….I hate to tell you Zendaya and Tommy, but this was already done. At the Met. By Zac Posen with Claire Danes and I think they did it better. If you’re going to repeat make sure you top the last one!
Katy Perry ~ Outfit: Moschino
Lupita Nyong’o ~ Gown: Versace // Jewelry: Bulgari
Miley Cyrus ~ Dress: Saint Laurent // Jewelry: Bulgari
Emily Blunt ~ Gown: Michael Kors // Shoes: Sam Edelman // Headpiece: Stephen Jones // Jewelry: Messika
Emma Stone ~ Jumpsuit: Louis Vuitton
Regina King ~ Gown: Oscar de la Renta // Jewelry: Lark & Berry London
Regina looks stunning here, and I can’t think of any other red carpet moments of hers I’ve loved better than this. The drama of that shoulder is gorgeous, and that last beauty shot…aahhhhh!
Josephine Skriver ~ Gown: Jonathan Simkhai // Jewelry: Bulgari
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley ~ Gown: Oscar de la Renta // Shoes: Christian Louboutin // Jewelry: Lorraine Schwartz
Alicia Keys ~ Gown: Carolina Herrera // Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti

Love the dress, hate the spray tan.

Lucy Boynton ~ Gown: Prada
Jemima Kirke and Lena Dunham ~ Dresses: Christopher Kane
Jourdan Dunn ~ Dress: Zac Posen
Thalia ~ Gown: Tommy Hilfiger // Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti // Jewelry: Djula
Janet Mock ~ Gown: Alberta Ferretti // Shoes: Brian Atwood
I am in love with the “broken mirror” beading of this gown. The wings on the shoulders are definitely camp, but take those off, and I’d wear this in a heartbeat.
Kristen Stewart ~ Outfit: Chanel
Jennifer Connelly ~ Dress: Louis Vuitton
Emily Ratajkowski ~ Gown: Dundas // Shoes: Jimmy Choo // Jewelry: Messika
You can just hear the servers crashing as millions download their new motivation for dieting and working out as they both admire and secretly hate Ratajkowski for this 12/10 amazingly sexy look.
Julia Garner ~ Gown: Zac Posen // Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Both sculptural and fluid, this gown is just made for the Met Gala red carpet. And Julia Garner’s gorgeous blonde curly locks are the perfect complement, creating that Medusa, mystical creature vibe, enhanced with her golden crown.
Alessia Cara ~ Gown: Giambattista Valli // Shoes: Comme des Garçons x Nike // Bag: Tyler Ellis // Earrings: Harry Kotlar
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner ~ Outfits: Louis Vuitton
Amber Valletta ~ Outfit: Saint Laurent // Jewelry: Chopard
I’m so here for the reveals on this red carpet! And damn girl, you’ve got some guts.
Priyanka Chopra ~ Gown: Dior // Jewelry: Chopard
Wow. I don’t even recognize her!
Dakota Johnson ~ Gown: Gucci
This makes me think of that one scene in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom where the guy reaches into the other guy’s chest and pulls his heart out. Good times. So pretty!
Irina Shayk ~ Gown: Burberry by Riccardo Tisci
Zoe Saldana ~ Gown: Michael Kors // Jewelry: Jared Lehr
Dua Lipa ~ Gown: Versace // Jewelry: VRAM and KatKim
Zoe Kravitz ~ Gown: Saint Laurent // Jewelry: Harry Kotlar, Anabela Chan, Yvan Tufenkjian, Amwaj, Marli New York, and Le Vian
Multifunctional: When your gown acts as both clothing and a pasty!
Gwyneth Paltrow ~ Gown: Chloe // Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Sure, Gwyneth. Your pared back nightgown dress meets the criteria of over-the-top camp theme of this year’s Met Gala. Go ahead! Do you.
Cody Fern ~ Outfit: Maison Margiela by John Galliano
I’m starting to think it wasn’t so much his character on The Assassination of Gianni Versace, but him that creeps me out a little.
