It is finally the first Monday in May!

The Met Gala and my favorite of the Dress to Room Pairings because of the outlandish, daring and wild fashions. This year is beyond over the top.  See all the looks HERE or HERE. There are so many to see.

 The Met Gala is a pinnacle of iconic style and the BIGGEST NIGHT in fashion of the year. A fundraising benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the event welcomes celebrity stars, young creatives, and industry paragons alike. And the excitement doesn’t stop there—the gala also signifies the highly anticipated grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibition.

“Camp: Notes on Fashion” is the theme this year. It’s based on writer Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay titled “Notes on ‘Camp.’” “The essence of Camp is its love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration,” she wrote. Andrew Bolton, curator of The Costume Institute (aka the person who basically runs the Met Gala alongside Anna Wintour) explained it a little further in an interview with The New York Times:

We are going through an extreme camp moment, and it felt very relevant to the cultural conversation to look at what is often dismissed as empty frivolity but can be actually a very sophisticated and powerful political tool, especially for marginalized cultures.

Whether it’s pop camp, queer camp, high camp, or political camp—Trump is a very camp figure—I think it’s very timely.
