Lady Gaga, Cardi B, Kim Kardashian and others had iconic red carpet fashion moments at the Met Gala on Monday night.
The Met Gala, an annual benefit event for the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, is considered one of the world’s biggest fashion events.
It is known for its exclusive guest list, expensive tickets and -most of all- its extravagant outfits, based on a different theme each year.
This year, the theme was ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’ – to coincide with an upcoming exhibition at the Met, inspired by photographer Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay, ‘Notes on Camp’.
The outfits this year were like the exhibition and based on “irony, humour, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality and exaggeration”.
Singer Lady Gaga, began the night by arriving in a billowing pink outfit which was not quite what it seemed at first glance.
The outfit transformed into a long black dress and then, a lingerie piece on the pink carpet.
