MET Gala 2019 has to be one of the biggest fashion nights of the year. Being said that, it has become a big platform for celebrities and designers to put their best foot forward. The theme each year become bigger and bolder with a lot of celebrities stepping out of their comfort zones.


You cannot have the biggest fashion night of the year and not have queer representation. While the theme of the year was ‘Camp: Notes to Fashion’, we saw too many queer looks breaking camp!

The queer community have perfected the art of camp for decades now. The ‘camp’ is extravagant, outrageous and clearly over the top.


Cara Delvigne subtly hinted her outfit inspiration - The LGBTQ flag.

If you have to break camp, who better to do it than Lady Gaga herself. Gaga is the co-chair of this year’s MET Gala and she made sure that all the eyes were on her. In true Gaga sense, she arrived in a hot pink gown by Brandon Maxwell with an orchestra that was being played in the background.

This soon broke into a performance where she used the help of props and dancers to make sure she was getting all the paparazzi attention. She soon revealed the layers of outfits beneath her gown surprising everyone with her rather unusual red carpet moment.

Her final ‘Breaking Camp’ moment came when she exited her conservative gown revealing a skimpy sequined two-piece and fishnet stockings. While most people played safe with their outfits, this marked an important day when it comes down to the queer community.

Lena Waithe was another such person who created an impact with her strong-shouldered vintage pantsuit. What stole the show was ‘Black Drag Queens invented Camp’ strategically embroidered on the back.

After his Oscar Tux-Gown, Billy Porter made sure to steal the show in full glory. He made an appearance dressed in an over the top golden ensemble seated on a black velvet throne held by six shirtless guys. Now that’s how you do it!

This day definitely gives a huge platform to people and communities to set an impact. What are your thoughts about it? Let us know in the comments section below.
