Met Gala 2019

For celebrities, the annual Met Gala is a perfect opportunity to show the world how famous, fashionable and flamboyant they are. 

I find it all very loud – but even so, Lady Gaga seemed able to surpass everybody else! 

Anyway, on Monday, Mother Monster walked the Met Gala 2019 carpet in four different outfits:

Lady Gaga showed wearing a Brandon Maxwell gown, featuring billowing sleeves, a full skirt, and a breathtaking cape. Never one to shy away from high drama, she topped the look off with a matching bow fastened to her platinum hair as she glided down the red carpet shielded by a flurry of black umbrellas. 

Naturally, her makeup was just as eclectic, with long needle-like pieces protruding from her eyelashes, an attention-grabbing cat eye, and hot pink lipstick to match her gown. But she wasn't done there – in fact, she had just started. 

She soon removed her magenta gown to reveal a black strapless dress with a full skirt. For this look, she held her own corresponding umbrella, looped around her wrist like a bracelet. 

Lady Gaga's third outfit was just as memorable: a skin-tight Barbie pink dress with spaghetti straps, in which she posed while holding a giant retro cell phone. With a set of oversized Linda Farrow sunglasses, she was full Old Hollywood glam with a side of 1980's drama. 

For her fourth and final act, she stripped down to a matching black bra and underwear set, which she paired with sheer stockings and, surprisingly, lace-up stiletto boots. She posed with a gold and pink hat-filled wagon, reading "Haus of Gaga" across the front – perhaps a nod to her new beauty line? 

It was truly the pièce de résistance of the entire look... or should we say looks. Leave it to Lady Gaga to turn the Met Gala red carpet into her own incredible performance.

The Met Gala is held every May in New York, USA to celebrate the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's latest exhibition, with guests asked to dress to match the theme. 

This year's exhibition is Camp: Notes on Fashion, and guests were encouraged to be as theatrical and colorful as possible. 

Speaking ahead of the Gala on Monday, the exhibition's head curator Andrew Bolton said: "In the end, the purpose of camp is to put a smile on our faces and a warm glow in our hearts”. 

Whatever he may want us to believe, methinks it is nothing more than a fancy dress party for the fabulously rich.
