The headless, the androgynous and the Kardashian: Met Gala 2019 fashion

Katy Perry had a “bright” idea, Harry Styles went sheer, and Kim, Kylie and Kendall… Well, they showed up. Here’s an irreverent report on the year’s most bonkers fashion event.

Celebrities of all shapes, sizes and credibility showed up at New York's annual Met Gala on May 6 (May 7, Singapore morning), dressed to impress. Or at least make an impression.

The annual by-invitation-only event, is a benefit for New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the dress code to match the evening’s theme: Camp: Notes on Fashion.

Here’s a look at the outfits we are delighted to say took the theme very seriously.
