The first Monday in May might as well be a holiday for true fashion lovers. It’s the date for the annual Met Gala, which raises money for the Costume Institute. Each year, the gala has a theme, along with prominent celebrity co-hosts and fashion designers, where tables go for a quarter of a million dollars.
This years’ Met Gala theme is Camp: Notes on Fashion. In an interview with the New York Times, Andrew Bolton (Head Curator of the MET Costume Institute) revealed, “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.”
While undoubtedly the the dresses are sure to stun and give us many jaw dropping red carpet moments, we’re taking a look at dresses from the past that we just can’t get enough of.
