From Katy Perry to Jared Leto: Photos of the most dramatic outfits at Met Gala 2019

The Met Gala, which sees celebrities dressed in extravagant fineries, is an annual fashion event which is held on the first Monday of May. This year, the most significant fashion fundraiser was hosted on May 6. The Costume Institute’s spring 2019 exhibition explored the theme ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’. As defined by Merriam-Webster, Camp is a style or mode of personal or creative expression that is absurdly exaggerated and often fuses elements of high and popular culture. Here's a look at celebrities doing justice to the theme.
