This year's theme of the Met Gala megaevent was the motto: 'Camp: Notes on Fashion'. The theme is inspired by the 1964 essay “Camp” by Susan Sontag. It was a sort of first introduction, a journey into the world of artistic mainstream. How did the most radiant faces deal with the journey into the mainstream? Let's have a look now!
Cara Delevigne at the top
For me, the absolute best was top model Cara. Her Dior Haute Couture rainbow mini dress with a bold headband and stockings is just simply the best! Unmissable, bold and the most original concept. Plus the cane and make-up spiced with an orange stripe across her face... Not everyone could pull this off... but Cara just scored maximum points!

The boogeyman of the party Katy Perry
Beware, there is a risk of electric shock. Exactly this sign was the last thing Katy Perry was missing around her neck. Chandelier? Okay, there are luxury chandeliers in theatres everywhere... but bringing a polished chandelier by Jeremy Scott to the Met Gala? No! As if it was not enough that his last three collections were nothing extra… This is really bad all over and rather than art as such it reminds me of a costume from a bad circus performance “Panoptikum”.

Inflatable Cardi B
I consider rapper Cardi B as an African American version of Lady Gaga. Of course she had to wear something that is just too much. This monstrous burgundy robe by Thom Brown reminds me of an infomercial inflatable mattress that I was watching while night-feeding my baby years ago. Benefits? If she accidentally fell down the stairs, it wouldn't hurt!

French beauty in a Brazilian style
Gisele Bündchen undoubtedly was the princess of the evening. Her delicate pink pleated robe from Dior was just perfect! Simple make-up, smooth hair and fine jewellery. Note the snake earring detail that goes through the whole ear - in short, power in small detail. I may have really fallen in love!

Marie Sharapova's tennis out
Givenchy's black-red-and-white robe, worn by one of the world's most famous tennis players, was a bad choice right from the start, including make-up. It looks the same as an average German's holiday breakfast plate. From mayonnaise salad to pancakes with Nutella. At Met Gala like this? Such a shame!

Triple Lady Gaga
Lately, Lady Gaga has always been dressed like a lady. Whether at the Oscars or at the Golden Globes. Therefore, it is quite possible that she missed her older "wild" self. Brandon Maxwell has created a giant cloak, a seductive tight dress in the style of Marilyn Monroe, and finally sequin lingerie with transvestite shoes. My impression? It's Lady Gaga, and she just has to go through these things. I really enjoy this cheeky girl! :)
