When Lady Gaga opened this year's Met Gala by tearing through three different red carpet dresses (one on top of another on top of another) until she was left in her undies and fishnets, we knew we were in for the craziest, boldest, and most eventful Gala of all time.
For those not in the know, this year's Met Gala theme was "camp," which is a fashion term alluding to everything exaggerated, ironic, kitschy, cheesy, and flamboyant. And while most of us were anticipating that few celebrities would grasp this concept (need we bring up that time the theme was "punk"?), most of this year's looks knocked the theme right out of NYC's Upper East Side.
Below, catch just a few of the endless looks that dropped jaws worldwide.
Kylie and Kendall Jenner
The Jenners came through in full force with these matching, bright Versace gowns.
We all knew Monáe would knock this theme out of the park, and she did not disappoint with her completely functional eyeball props.
Lumiere who? Perry was no match for a dark room with her chandelier getup.
Barbie can't even compare to Kacey Musgraves, who was barely recognizable in her huge blonde wig and pink pleather dress.
Looking like a 1970s psychedelic trip, "New Rules" singer Dua Lipa worked the pink carpet in major camp fashion.
Charles Melton and Camila Mendes
And everyone's other favorite Riverdale couple followed close behind looking just as spectacular.
Steinfeld lived out everyone's fantasy of being able to wear one of those viral Viktor & Rolf meme gowns in real life. Sigh.
Last but definitely not least, Cardi B — as expected — literally shut down the entire event to make room for her impossibly long, red velvet gown.
Add these 22 looks that totally nailed to your Pinterest boards to fancy the 'Camp' theme at 2019's Met Gala!
