The Met Gala is the fashion event that asks celebrities to really push the envelope, and every year there are a number of stars who take on the challenge and succeed. The 2019 Met Gala, which was celebrating camp, was no different. Several celebrities totally nailed the assignment, wowing the crowd at the Gala and the denizens of Twitter as well.
Pose star Billy Porter also wowed the crowd, dressed all in gold and carried into the venue by six shirtless muscled men.
Lady Gaga, who co-chaired the event, was one of the obvious standouts, undergoing three costume changes on the red carpet and going through an entire campy performance on the steps of the Met.
Celine Dion, currently in the middle of a Las Vegas residency, said on the red carpet that she didn’t even know what camp meant, but fully embodied the theme with her stylized Vegas showgirl look.
Janelle Monae arrived in a Christian Siriano creation that played with the lines between surrealism and camp. Trans actress Laverne Cox also arrived in a beautiful black Siriano gown.
Harry Styles, another one of the Met Gala co-chairs, arrived wearing a sheer top that displayed his back and chest. Darren Criss had on a colorful blazer and an oversized bow, while both Ezra Miller and Michael Urie stood out in mind-blowing sartorial creations.
There were also a number of Met Gala disappointment. Both Taron Egerton and Rami Malek arrived wearing black suits, ironic considering that both actors have portrayed two of the campiest celebrities ever: Elton John and Freddie Mercury. Richard Madden and Shawn Mendes also arrived in unremarkable black suits.

Alas, roughly 2/3 of uniformed guys are Straight (ok, pick you figure).
But oh yeh! Roughly 1/3 are not!
Now, if there was just a definitive way to discern the two….
Nathan was Chief Medic… .
He got to know a straight boy from a gay boy. All I had to do was give a prostate exam:
the straight boy yelled and cried; the gay boy moaned and smiled!
I’m a gay man and I could not care less about women’s fashion. Let’s discuss the new Ford Bronco.
then simply don’t read the article Matt! It’s normal that all the articles are not to your taste, we don’t write only for you!
Uh, how can Matt, or anyone for that matter, know they should not have read an article, until they read the article? Just sayin’.
