The first Monday in May marks fashion’s biggest night and fundraising event — The Met Gala.
Every year, a fashion theme is announced, and celebrities and designers spend several months and countless hours creating their signature looks.
This year’s theme, “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” was diversely interpreted by celebrities and designers as they walked the pink carpet leading to The Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan. The camp theme brought out an array of wild, gaudy, eccentric, vibrant and over-the-top styles.
Here are some of the fashion moments from your favorite celebrities:
Cardi B – Cardi hit the pink carpet with a jaw-dropping burgundy gown with a train resembling a peacock’s tail.
Naomi Campbell – The supermodel looked absolutely amazing in a pink ensemble featuring lace and feathers.
Lupita Nyong’o – The Us actress went all out with her interpretation of the camp theme. She wore a very vibrant and colorful dress with glittery eye makeup and gold Afro picks throughout her hair.
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez – The beautiful couple hit the pink carpet with glitz and glamour, but not before sharing a photograph captioned, “Here we come.”
