The stairs of the Metropolitan Museum of New York were once again the stage of the red carpet of the Met Gala, which in this issue was subordinated to the theme Camp: Notes on Fashion, inspired by a 1964 essay by the North Writer Susan Sontag.
Since 1995, the event has been chaired by US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, who enlists public figures to serve as her co-chairs.
Past hosts have included Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Amal Clooney, and Rihanna. The Met Gala 2019, which marks the event’s 71th anniversary, was co-chaired by Lady Gaga, Alessandro Michele, Harry Styles, and Serena Williams.
