Met Gala

Met Gala 2019 in photos: Gender-bending looks rule at the cray, crazy and campy party of the year

The annual Met Gala is synonymous with the over-the-top outfits of the who's who of Hollywood and fashion and sports, and oh, the $30,000 ticket per head. And it didn't disappoint us this year. The black-tie extravaganza Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute benefit is an annual fundraiser for the fashion department. 2019's theme 'Camp: Notes on Fashion' is a play on US writer and political activist Susan Sontag's 1964 essay, Notes on Camp. The outfits had to be based on "irony, humour, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality and exaggeration". Check out our favourite celebrity looks from the party of the year:

IN PHOTOS | Hollywood who's who rock the Met Gala red carpet with Catholic-themed fashion

Divine designs floated up the red carpet at Monday's religion-themed Met Gala in shimmering golds, reds and fuchsia, in crowns and in crosses, and even a pair of giant wings. The annual fundraising fete in New York brings out Hollywood's elite for an evening of fashion and charity and to celebrate the spring exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute —  this year, "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination."
