After every Met Gala, there are certain outfits that totally dominate the headlines. This year saw Kim Kardashian arrive on the red carpet in a showstopping beaded latex Thierry Mugler design, Lady Gaga go through four (yes, four) outfit changes on the pink carpet, and Katy Perry turn up wearing an actual chandelier.
Of course, this year’s theme was Camp: Notes on Fashion – a nod to an upcoming exhibition at the Met, inspired by US writer and political activist Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay, Notes on Camp – so it was absolutely a case of more is more. And just when you thought you’d seen it all, there’s always another incredible creation that you probably haven’t spotted – yet.
