The best Met Gala looks of 2019
From outrageously outlandish to high-calibre camp, we've rounded up the Met Gala 2019's best looks
Fom Lady Gaga's flamboyant strip tease to Lupiya Nyong'o's prismatic, bird-of-paradise inspired number, celebrities pulled out all the stops to achieve their fix of Gala glory. From outrageously outlandish to high-calibre Camp, we've rounded up the Met Gala 2019's best looks.
Lady Gaga in Brandon Maxwell (Look 4)
Lady Gaga boasted not one, but four Brandon Maxwell outfits to host the Met Gala. She went from donning a giant pink doll's gown, to a billowing black strapless one, to a hot pink slip dress and ending in a diamante, lingerie flourish.
Zoe Kravtiz in Saint Laurent
The breathtaking Zoe Kravitz stunned in a cut-out, sequinned Saint Laurent number, accessorised with delightfully OTT chandeleir earrings from jeweller Anabela Chan.
Michael Urie in Christian Siriano
Designer Christian Siriano was behind a number of this year's best pink carpet looks, but this half-half gown-suit worn by Michael Urie really took the biscuit.
Bella Hadid in Jeremy Scott
Bella wore a bejewelled, cut-out gown from Jeremy Scott – a look she completed with jewel-drop earrings and a boyish, Gatsby-esque hair do.
Billy Porter in The Blonds
Arriving on a black velvet litter carried by six half-naked men in an up-cycled, glittering nod to Ancient Egypt, Billy Porter wore a look by by The Blonds. A gilded masterpiece. You win.
Gigi Hadid in Michael Kors
Gigi Hadid was a high-fashion alien in her embellished silver jumpsuit-and-cape from Michael Kors. Her outrageously long, white fluttering eyelashes added to the glorious absurdity.
Harry Styles and Alessandro Michele in Gucci
Harry Styles was a dream in camp, in a semi-sheer Gucci blouse, high waisted trousers, heeled boots and single pearl earring a la Vermeer. Creative director of Gucci, Alessandro Michele, arrived closely in tow, wearing a mettalic pink catsuit with matching platform boots.
Gemma Chan in Tom Ford
We couldn't wait to see what Gemma Chan would wear, and her Ice Queen ensemble by Tom Ford didn't disappoint.
Lena Waithe and Kerby Jean-Raymond in Pyer Moss
Lena Waithe paid rightful tribute to the pioneers of camp, opting for a jacket with the words 'Black Drag Queens Invented Camp' emblazoned on the back. The buttons are actually pictures of Camp and Drag icons, whilst lyrics to Diana Ross and Gloria Gaynor serve as pinstripes. Perfection.
Cara Delevigne in Dior
Delevigne was a rainbow-striped unicorn in Dior, with long, barbie-doll hair.
Lily Collins in Giambattista Valli
Lily Collins was a Priscilla Presley/Lana Del Rey hybrid in a bouffant dress of dreams, with flowers perched perfectly in her foot-high hair-do.
Lupita Nyong'o in Versace
Nyong'o was a neon rainbow in a gown by Versace, with a towering crown of five, gilded afro picks in her hair, created by celebrity hair stylist Vernon Francois.
Ezra Miller in Burberry
Ezra Miller was transformed into the Met Gala's resident optical illusion, donning a jewelled, caged corsest over pinstripes and five face-paint eyes.
Cristina and Victoria Iglesias in Oscar de la Renta
The Iglesias sisters shimmied down the pink carpet in pastel Oscar de la Renta gowns.
