The biggest fashion event of the year took place in New York City on Monday night.
Per tradition, stars from sports, film, television, music and nearly every single industry that represents Hollywood stopped by the Metropolitan Museum of Art to dress in some very unusual outfits.
And some wildly expensive outfits.
This year’s theme for the MET Gala?
“Camp,” which is a refefernce to to Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay about artifice and stylization.
Sontag notes that songs, movies, buildings, furniture, novels, people and, of course, clothes, all can encompass camp.
In fact, Sontag gives her own examples of “campy” things, which included Tiffany lamps, Swan Lake, King Kong and Flash Gordon comics.
Whatever. Just feast your eyes on the crazy ensembles from this annual event below!
