As Coco Chanel once said, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off. “
Since then, it has been a fashion decree. However, there is one event where it is exciting and encouraged to break the rules: the Met Gala.
Over the years, Hollywood’s A-List has climbed the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City wearing towering piles of hats, ornate hairpieces, feathered angel wings, and even decapitated heads and wicks of hair.
At the 2019 Met Gala, the Camp: Notes on Fashion theme allowed for some over-the-top additions to a sea of already daring ensembles.
Billy Porter made a unique entry, proving that a diamond bracelet is nothing compared to having handsome men as candy on your arm. The actor, channeling his inner Egyptian god, was perched atop a throne as six shirtless men carried him. In addition, he wore a dramatic 24-karat gold helmet and 10-foot wings that enveloped the red carpet.
