Lady Gaga To Co-Chair Camp-Themed 2019 Met Gala

Lady Gaga To Co-Chair Camp-Themed 2019 Met Gala

Lady Gaga will co-chair the 2019 Met Gala with Gucci director Alessandro Michele, singer Harry Styles, tennis player Serena Williams, and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, the Metropolitan Museum of Art announced on Tuesday. The theme for the star-studded event is "Camp: Notes on Fashion," a play on Susan Sontag's 1964 essay "Notes on 'Camp,'" that brought the concept of "camp" into the mainstream.

Camp "has become increasingly more mainstream in its pluralities—political camp, queer camp, Pop camp, the conflation of high and low, the idea that there is no such thing as originality," Andrew Bolton, Wendy Yu Curator in Charge of the Costume Institute, told Vogue.

The 2019 Met Gala is set to take place on Monday, May 7 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
