Met Gala goes ‘camp’ for the annual A-list fashion parade

Most memorable Met Gala looks, from Rihanna's 'omelette' dress to Beyonce's latex look

Lady Gaga says her unshaven legs will 'complete' her Met Gala look

Looking at these gorgeous pictures of the 22-year-old star, there is a hype about her Met Gala feat already.

The theme, "Camp: Notes on Fashion", comes from a 1964 essay by American writer Susan Sontag, and, no, it's not an ode to a summer spent tenting under the stars.

Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue, has been a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala for more than 20 years, and she has tended to stick to a fairly simple silhouette (better to let stars do their thing) for a lot of them.

Wintour said she believes this year's Met Gala to be about "self expression" and "individuality", noting that she wanted to see "outrageous, fun, tongue in cheek" fashion on the red carpet.

The theme of the annual Met Gala is probably one of the most important announcements in terms of fashion for any type of red carpet. This year's Met Gala will see Lady Gaga, Harry Styles, Serena Williams and Alessandro Michele of Gucci chair the event alongside Wintour.

She paired the look with a black vertical fascinator. She also carried a teeny tiny black purse which has social media users wondering what could possibly go into such a small bag. "Destination 'Camp, ' so excited to co-chair Anna's event", she captioned it.

Last year's Met Gala followed the theme 'Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination'.

The Camp Collection will be available in both The Met Store and online following Monday night's gala.

'Camp is by nature subversive (.) confronting and challenging the status quo, ' the Costume Institute's head curator Andrew Bolton said Monday at a press event about the exhibition before the gala.

This look declared her the Patron Saint of the Met Gala.
