Say hello to your 2019 Met Gala hosts!
The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute revealed Tuesday that this year’s event will be hosted by not two but a trio of co-hosts — Lady Gaga, Serena Williams and Harry Styles.
The institute also announced this year’s theme which is “Camp: Notes on Fashion.” The theme was inspired by the essay, Camp, which was published in 1964 by Susan Sontag. According to E! the essay describes the love of the unnatural: “of artifice and exaggeration… style at the expense of content… the triumph of the epicene style. The ambiguity of the theme is sure to inspire a fantastic variety of interpretations and styles.“
Every year A-listers and fashion powerhouses join forces to stun with theme-inspired ensembles. The annual event is hosted by Anna Wintour is one of the most celebrated red carpet events of the year.
Last year’s Met Gala was hosted by Amal Clooney and Rhianna. Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams hosted in 2017, Taylor Swift in 2016 and Beyoncé in 2013.
