What is the theme of the 2019 Met Gala?

Rihanna stole the red carpet show last year with her papal garb

A woman after our own hearts, Gaga has been too busy to worry too much about her appearance at the 2019 Met Gala, admitting she hasn't shaved her legs for four days in the lead up to the red carpet. This photo was made even better by her caption.

Last year's guests didn't disappoint, from Rihanna's pope-inspired ensemble dripping in diamonds to Blake Lively walking the red carpet in $2 million worth of jewelry.

This year, the exhibit and gala are dedicated to the idea of 'camp, ' as defined by Susan Sontag's 1964 essay Notes on 'Camp'.

First held in 1948 when it was attended by New York's upper class, the Costume Institute Gala is held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on the first Monday of May annually.

Cardi B made her first appearance at the Met Gala a year ago and it was a triumph, the rapper - who was pregnant at the time - dressed in a custom embellished golden gown by Moschino's Jeremy Scott and a matching headdress.

Met Gala 2019 is going to be one star-studded event with fans getting a glimpse of their favourite celebrities and fashion designers looking their stylish best at the red carpet.

The Met Gala, formally known as the Costume Institute Benefit, is always chaired by a team of high-wattage celebrities, and this year is no exception.

Theresa May used Huawei leak ‘to show leadership’
Penny Mordaunt, former minister for global development, has now been named as defence secretary in place of Mr Williamson. May said an investigation had left no other credible explanation for the leak except that he was responsible.

It's the final countdown to the Met Gala 2019.

The crowd could top 600 and has likely been talking about camp for quite some time as guests, Wintour's co-hosts and the evening's committee members worked to personalize their fashion spins on the theme.

The night of the Met Gala, when the stars arrive, Vogue will stream the carpet on Instagram Live.

Rihanna showed up for cocktails and dinner in a silvery custom Maison Margiela dress, cape and papal hat to mark last year's exhibition, "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination".

An avant-garde style icon, Solange is never afraid to push the envelope at the Met Gala while still sticking to the theme - which can't be said for all attendees.

Jaden Smith will do something bizarreJaden Smith at the 2018 and 2017 Met Gala.

Speaking to NBC's Jenna Bush Hager ahead of this year's Met Gala on Monday, the Vogue editor-in-chief confessed: "I would love to have the Duchess of Sussex and the Duchess of Cambridge together".
