Last Night in NYC was the Met Gala Ball 2019, there were so many outrageous and over-the-top red carpet outfits this year. The theme of the Costume Exhibition was “Camp: Notes on Fashion.” Yes camp, as in exaggerated fashion. The exhibit is inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay that defines camp as “love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration.” Camp fashion can be humorous, ironic, or simply extreme.
