Lady Gaga returns to the Met Gala red carpet after 2 years and stuns everyone with her multiple ensembles.
After a brief hiatus, Lady Gaga was back at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala 2019. Her grand entrance made everyone take notice of the A Star Is Born actor. She left everyone at a loss for words with her wardrobe of not one but four different outfits at the red carpet. Gaga played all her cards right and proved to be a pop icon with the multiple ensembles she chose to appear in.
The Oscar-winning singer truly held up the theme of this year's Met Exhibition, “Camp: Notes on Fashion.” Based on Susan Sontag's 1964 essay Notes on Camp, it defines 'camp' as "its love of the unnatural, of artifice and exaggeration." This can be definitely translated into being extra in terms of style and fashion. And Lady Gaga was all about the grandeur. She stepped onto the red carpet submerged in a hot-pink sea of a caped gown. Of course, the dress had the iconic met-gala train, only it was longer than most. The look was completed with a matching fuschia bow fixed on her head.
Gaga is known for her exaggerated style statements, and this year's theme proved to be the best opportunity to channel her inner goddess with the help of her designer friend Brandon Maxwell. The lengthy trail that sat gracefully on the steps of the Met Gala perfectly complimented her dramatic eye makeup. Gaga pulled off the huge golden eyelashes with utmost finesse. This was just the beginning of what was to come. From here on she started peeling layer after layer, mimicking a Russian doll to show off what was underneath it all.
With the help of her assistants, she quickly took off the initial pink layer of her ensemble revealing couture black own underneath it. This timeless strapless gown featured a molded hip that was accessorized with a black umbrella which added to the effect. It didn't end there as she quickly slipped out of the black number revealing a Barbie-inspired pink gown number along with a chunky retro block cell phone. The singer posed as if she was on a phone call with someone wearing her oversized Linda Farrow sunglasses which lent itself to the scene very dramatically.
Finally, it was time to strip it all off. Lady was seen in her sexy black lingerie which had to be the perfect of this year's theme. The sparkly black bra matched her underwear and was accompanied by a pair of sky-high boots and glittery stockings. She rested her whole body on the steps as lay on her back in her final outfit. Each outfit carried the theme of Camp perfectly and the pink bow, in the beginning, was the perfect homage paid to her Poker-face and Just Dance era of music. Every dress represented a phase in her career and it was delivered flawlessly.
Lady Gaga was the co-chair of this year's Met Gala alongside Serena Williams, Anna Wintour, Harry Styles, and Alessandro Michele the creative director of Gucci. She last attended the Met Gala in 2016 and didn't hesitate to pull all the stops when she arrived this year after a gap of after two whole years. During her plane ride over she wore the '90s inspired lemon-printed dress along with was held together by a plaid flannel tied around her waist. A pair of black Dr. Marten’s boots is exactly what she needed to complete her look.
She uploaded this picture on her Instagram account and captioned it: "Met Gala here we come. Destination “Camp,” so excited to co-chair Anna’s event. #MetGala #MarcJacobs #(and I didn’t shave my legs for 4 days which really completes the look) #ZoomIn #ladygaga #fashion thank you @sarahtannomakeup for the jacob’s shwag." Gaga chose to wear a number from Jacob's 2019 fall collection for Vogue's pre-Met Party. She appeared in a black and white striped, short tulle dress along with a "baby" bag which was a significant contrast to the oversize black fascinator. Of course, the award-winning singer chose to go old-school with her sky-high, lace-up black platforms.
Here's what people thought about her appearance. @cosmicloverxxwent as far as to call her the "Queen of camp."
