PHOTOS: Here’s every campy masterpiece (and miss) we could find from the Met Gala. Dig in.

On Monday evening, we got glamorous, glittering eyefuls of ridiculously over-the-top fashions as celebrities worked the red carpet at the Met Gala’s celebration of “camp,” a slippery concept defined by exaggerated, superficial style over substance.

Andrew Bolton, head curator of the Met museum’s Costume Institute, said that defining camp is like trying to sit in the corner of a circular room. But a whole flock of queer celebrities and allies definitely tried, giving us some of the most playful and unforgettable fashions we’ve seen all year.

We already mentioned Billy Porter appearing a a golden-winged Egyptian pharaoh being carried by six shirtless men in gold pants, bracelets, face-coverings and boots. But he was just the tip of the camp iceberg, darlings.

Let’s see how other celebs wore their own versions of “camp”:

The Met Gala and All Things Camp (Part 1) Blog ? [Excerpt] The first Monday of May, which means Met Gala Day! The theme for the 71st anniversary of the gala is Camp: Notes on Fashion, based on the 1964 essay written by Susan Sontag, about Camp, the aesthetic. Before we dive into Camp style in art, here’s a brief backstory about the Met Gala, also known as the Costume Institute Gala; In 1946, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Costume Art merged together. Due to questions of whether or not fashion is considered a form of art, the latter is still the only department of the museum that has to fund itself. The annual “Party of the Year,” founded by Eleanor Lambert, brought in the funds necessary to maintain the Costume Institute. Diana Vreeland changed the way the public viewed costume design, allowing it to be seen as art and connecting it to contemporary fashion rather than historical garments on display. The party turned into a “grand fête for both the social and art worlds,” around the early 70s, with Diana’s direction. The gala marks the opening of the annual fashion exhibit that remains open for a few months of the year. Anna Wintour has been co-chairing the Met Gala since 1995, and will be co-chairing this year’s gala with Lady Gaga (singer, songwriter,) Serena Williams (tennis player,) Harry Styles (singer, songwriter,) and Alessandro Michele (creative director, Gucci.)
