This year’s Met Gala theme was Camp. Camp is an ode to Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay, “Notes on Camp”. It is a combination of the flamboyant and the dramatic. 

The guest list for the Gala is determined by Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue. Making Wintour's guest list is no easy feat. She won't choose celebs that don't capture the theme, won't receive attention, and aren't recognizable. 

Some celebs such as Lady Gaga, Cardi B, and Billy Porter embraced this year’s theme to the max: 

Lady Gaga came in with a huge, hot pink gown, which she suddenly stripped off to reveal outfit after outfit (in a true nesting doll style). Cardi B wore a feathery and thick burgundy dress complete with men to carry the train. Billy Porter was decked in gold and entered with shirtless men carrying him onto the red carpet. 

Obviously, there were many Asian celebs who made Wintour’s picky A-list! Let’s see how they embraced Camp!
