The Met has become so huge in recent years that celebs sport different looks in the main event and in the after-party. If you thought the after-party outfits would be a little bit more chill, think again.
For instance, Katy Perry went the extra mile and she clearly takes parties very seriously, so in 2019 she wore a full-on hamburger costume for the one that came after the main event. She obviously took the “Camp” theme of the party to the next level with this head-turning outfit. Perry always slays it when it comes to the Gala, and we gotta admit we love this quirky look.
The Wrong Party
As we already mentioned, after-parties got big in recent years. Kim Kardashian wasn't about to let anyone outshine her. While this look can't be ignored, we are not sure it's a good thing. Maybe she thought it was Halloween? In a skintight blue dress and a shiny wig, Kim is obviously giving a nod to Cher.
While she did go all out, we are not fans of the look. On the red carpet, before the 2019 Met Gala afterparty, the star donned a skintight tan frock with crystal ornaments dripping down to resemble water. That look was great, so we’re not too sure why she went and changed into this after that stunning little number.
A Cinderella Moment
Zendaya smashed 2019's theme. What's campier than an over-the-top Disney-inspired princess gown? Nothing! The dress was designed by legendary Tommy Hilfiger. The actress's stylist, Roach, accompanied her on the red carpet dressed as the fairy godmother. She also had a bag shaped like Cinderella's pumpkin carriage, and if that's not enough, her gown lit up on the red carpet.
The star has a great track record of religiously sticking to the event’s theme, and This enchanting look gets her an automatic ten out of ten. At the same event the year before, the star rocked up in a Joan of Arc-influenced Versace custom-made gown, which also bang on hit the theme of the party of bang on the head.
Lights, Camera, Action!
Katy Perry is never one to do things lightly when it comes to creating an over-the top look. It, therefore comes as no surprise that she made our list, and she will probably do it again at some point in the years to come. Oddly enough, she’s literally wearing lights. Back in 2010, she had lights look that was slightly more subtle, if that’s even possible, for dresses created with lights.
She’s decked out like a full-blown chandelier – headpiece and all. The outfit was designed by Jeremy Scott from the brand Moschino. We admit, it doesn’t look so much like an outfit as a Halloween costume - but the theme for that year was Camp, and that year saw the Gala go wild.
Supermodel Amber Valletta has attended many Met Gala events throughout her modeling career and often parades some of the most prominent designer names in the industry. She also holds a special place in her heart for the Models as Muse Met Gala since some of her own work was being commemorated, so the entire event really hit home for her.
But at 2004’s Gala, she arrived in this Maggie Norris Couture corset and John Galliano skirt that really nailed the "Dangerous Liaisons" theme. In no other place in the modern world would this look make sense than the Met Gala…
