The Theme

Expect to see a truly outrageous and over-the-top red carpet this year. The theme of the Met’s 2019 Costume Exhibition is “Camp: Notes on Fashion.” No, not camp as in sleeping bags and tents, but 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.”

Campy fashion can be humorous, ironic, or simply extreme in its nature, meaning you can already expect Lady Gaga and Rihanna to shine on this year’s red carpet.

A large part of the exhibition will explore how irony, humour, parody, theatricality, and exaggeration are expressed in fashion. Other sections will highlight Versailles along with queer subcultures of Europe and America dating back to the 19th and early 20th centuries.

We are going through an extreme camp moment, and it felt very relevant to the cultural conversation to look at what is often dismissed as empty frivolity but can be actually a very sophisticated and powerful political tool, especially for marginalized cultures,” Andrew Bolton, Costume Institute curator, told the Times. “Whether it’s pop camp, queer camp, high camp or political camp — Trump is a very camp figure — I think it’s very timely.”
