The Met Gala in the fashion world is the equivalent of the Oscar awards for cinema, but with more hype and ostentation. It is the most expensive and scenographic of the charity evenings and every first Monday of May it inaugurates the annual exhibition of the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of New York. Guests are invited to dress by taking inspiration from the topic of the exhibition, which this year was the "camp", a concept that is a bit difficult to define but that could be summarized, simplifying a lot, in the aesthetics of exaggeration and artifice. It is often associated with the kitsch world, but to the point of being so ugly that it becomes beautiful. To get an idea of ​​how this concept was interpreted: Katy Perry dressed as a chandelier, Lady Gaga performed in a show by changing four different dresses (all by designer Brandon Maxwell), Jared Leto had two heads and Harry Styles worn a woman dress. But no description is as good as the following photos.
