If fashion is your forte, then the Met Gala is the ultimate glory.

On Monday evening, some of the biggest names in entertainment came together for the annual fundraising gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

From the style to the beauty to the accessories, the Met Gala is home to some of fashion’s most iconic looks, as well the most out-of-the-box (and sometimes out-of-the-universe) outfits. This year the Met Gala’s theme was “Camp: Notes on Fashion” — and it looks like some celebs completely hit the mark.

Head curator Andrew Bolton, along with his team and co-chairs, choose the gala’s theme every year, and “camp” is certainly an aesthetic open to experimentation and exploration. According to NBC, the theme is a play on writer Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay, Notes on Camp.

Sontag said camp is “love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration” and “something of a private code, a badge of identity.” Camp can be over-the-top, playful and eye-opening.
