For since 1995 the event has been hosted by US Vogue editor and chief Anna Wintour and this year marks it the 71st anniversary.

This years co-hosts along with Anna are the likes of Lady Gaga and Harry Styles.

There role is to act as chaperone for the event and bring the them to life on the red carpet which isn’t unfamiliar to the unorthodox Harry as he’s known for his unusual suits.




The theme for this year’s Met Gala is Camp.

Although Camp can be seen as flamboyant, exaggeration, ironic, anti-serious and sometimes distasteful.









Many celebrities and performers have a Camp dress sense or style, for example Elton John, whose music and stage performances have been put under that category. Another person in the industry that influences a lot of fashion is Creative director Jeremy Scott. Jeremy is known for the brand Moschino which featured a bunch of the wildest styles in his recent fashion show for the new collection Model Gigi Hadid. Who modeled as a bouquet of flowers.
