The annual Met Gala is an illustrious affair and always has been since its inception in 1948. For the uninitiated, it is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. And if you think it sounds fancy, it means you are averse to the visual treat that is truly is. Every year, the #MetGala brings together some of the most fashionable, iconic, innovative and whacky designers, stylists and celebrities together. Now, the list of attendees and the themes may vary each year but the one thing that remains constant is the event’s ability to leave everyone with their jaws dropping on the floor. The theme for each year’s gala is carefully selected keeping in mind its relevance to the conversation we as a society are engaging in at the moment. But sometimes it also just feels like a reason to bring out the #MemeMaster in everyone.

This year’s theme for the gala hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is – “Camp: Notes on Fashion”. No, it has nothing to do with Camp Rock or actual camping in the woods. The showcase is in fact inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay which describes camp as “love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration.” In other words, it gave the invitees a chance to bring out their most dramatic, extravagant, humourous and innovative selves. And tbh, they rose to the occasion, leaving fans awestruck and with hundreds of memes flooding their feed.

Here’s a peek at some of the incredible looks from this years #MetCamp:
