The first Monday in May is only a couple of weeks away. And that can only mean that fashion designers, A-list celebrities and Vogue's Anna Wintour are going into full gear with their preparations for the 2019 Met Gala. The annual shindig is in honour of The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute exhibition, which sees a different theme each year. With the gala benefiting the Costume Institute, the red carpet is always an extravagant line-up of impracticality and pomp.
Running from 9 May to 8 September 2019, Camp: Notes on Fashion will take over as the exhibition of the year. The exhibition is made possible with the backing of luxury fashion house Gucci. Creative director Alessandro Michele will also co-chair the event together with Lady Gaga, Harry Styles and Serena Williams. This year's theme is taken from an essay by Susan Sontag, 'Notes on Camp', which explores the meaning of camp and its many interpretations.

It's a no-brainer then that with Gucci having a hand in the exhibition taking shape, there would most probably be the usual Gucci gang dressed in Gucci. We're expecting Harry Styles, as well as confirmed guest Jared Leto, to both be decked out in Gucci (a befittingly campy fashion house under Michele's artistic vision).
While we're quite sure that designers would be creating custom red carpet looks for the A-list attendees, we couldn't stop ourselves from imagining who would make an appearance and in what manner. With the magic of Photoshop and some of the campiest runway looks, we've come up with our interpretation of how the red carpet for the 2019 Met Gala could potentially look like in the gallery above.
