The 2019 Met Gala was " Camp " themed, which meant celebs showed up in giant shoulder pads I guess. Shoulder pads sort of came back in style in recent years, but in a truly campy way: It winked at the And so, naturally, there were some big shoulders on the red carpet of the Met Gala this year.

Most Hollywood red carpets are exhausting and repetitive. But on Monday night, the Met Gala proved some of the biggest stars on the planet weren’t afraid to take some severe — and silly — fashion risks in the name of having fun.

The theme for this year’s event, hosted by Vogue editor Anna Wintour, was “camp,” which to be fair, most celebrities who attended the charity dinner interpreted broadly. But that didn’t really matter. At what other industry event (certainly not the Oscars or the Golden Globes) could you see, in a single evening, Jared Leto holding his own prosthetic severed head, Billy Porter sprouting golden wings, Katy Perry wearing a chandelier from “Beauty and the Beast” and Zendaya donning a Cinderella dress that glowed in the dark?

No. Could she walk in it? Carefully.

The Met Gala has kicked off at its campy best, with Lady Gaga working the pink carpet to its fullest, in long golden eyelashes and a huge fuchsia dress, then peeling off layer after layer until she was down to a bra, panties and fishnet stockings. Brandon Maxwell, who created the reveal, helped Gaga navigate

See the campiest looks from 2019 Met Gala pink carpet . It’s the first Monday in May, and you know what that means — the biggest names in fashion and entertainment are gathering at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to celebrate the opening of its annual fashion exhibit.

It was like Disneyland’s Main Street Electrical Parade had invaded the pages of Vogue. And, for the most part, the sights on display for three hours on a pink carpet on Manhattan’s Upper East Side were thrilling, sometimes horrifying, but never boring. Here are the biggest secrets and surprises from this year’s event.

1. Lady Gaga Won the Met with An Interpretative Dance and Four Costume Changes

Usually, the best looks at the gala arrive late into the evening, but not this year. No sooner had Wintour stepped off the carpet at around 5:30 p.m., that the streets of Manhattan erupted with cheers. One day soon, Twitter will dissect the deeper meaning behind Gaga’s 20 minutes of choreography. But standing on the sidelines of the Met, it was like being at a concert, as Gaga peeled off one magnificent gown (pink) for another (black) for a third (red) with a plastic telephone as her prop, before crawling up and down the steps of the museum in a bra and fishnet stockings.

Brandon Maxwell, who created the reveal, helped Gaga navigate the stairs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as she posed with several helpers carrying large umbrellas. Maxwell undressed her further, revealing a black strapless asymmetrical ballgown underneath with a huge side bustle.

There's no red carpet like the Met Gala with some of the biggest celebrities wearing extremely unique gowns.

Was it camp? Who knows, but it was a glorious performance. Even Wintour, who usually quickly disappears inside, couldn’t resist lurking at the top of the steps for the entire charade. When asked by a journalist how anyone else could compete, she yelled back: “They can’t!”

3. What Happens If You Don’t Speak Camp?

Celine Dion (who stunned in a gown from the closet of “Fosse/Verdon”) admitted that she initially thought the theme referred to camping. And indeed, not everybody was in on the joke. A few celebrities looked like they were wearing leftover frocks from the People’s Choice Awards. Frank Ocean wore a plain Prada poncho as he (in a campy gesture) took photos of the photographers shooting pictures of him. Mayor Michael Bloomberg also went with a safe, classic tuxedo. “You have to work with what God gave us,” he said, about not embracing a splashier look.

4. Kris Jenner is a Devoted Mom

Jenner showed up early on the carpet, with the first batch of celebrities. But when Hollywood’s favorite reality TV mom got to the top of the stairs, she waited and waited … and waited. More than an hour went by, as she made small talk with random designers and even welcomed Michael B. Jordan with a kiss on the cheek. Finally, it became clear what she looking for. As soon as Kim Kardashian made her way up the Met staircase, Jenner took out her phone and started recording.

5. Keeping Up With the Kardashian-Wests

Remember when it was controversial for the fashionistas to celebrate America’s No. 1 reality TV family? Those days are history. In fact, the Kardashians — Kim (in brown latex), Kendall Jenner (orange feathers) and Kylie (a purple dress with a boa) — treated the Met Gala like it was their own Cannes Film Festival red carpet. After the three daughters made it to the top, joined by mom Kris (and with Kayne by Kim’s side), they turned around and walked down the stairs and then walked back up them as a family. No movie star or singer could compete.

6. The One Thing Katy Perry Wouldn’t Say

“I’m retiring the word ‘lit’ tonight,” the singer confessed, as she slowly wobbled up the carpet in a gown that resembled a chandelier, fitted with lightbulbs.

7. An Entrance Suited for Cleopatra

Six shirtless men carried Billy Porter on a caravan to the entrance of the Met. Once he arrived, he spun his arms to reveal a pair of golden wings attached to his costume. He said that it took him five hours to get dressed.

8. Is Fashion Political?

Lena Waithe wore a suit with the words “Black Drag Queens Invented Camp,” written on the back. It was a pointed political reminder that the night owed its inspiration to a group of people that somehow weren’t included on the list of invitations.

9. Couples That Stayed Close

Jennifer Lopez clutched A-Rod’s hand as she made her way up the stairs. Kanye West lovingly kept a hand on Kim’s back as she talked to press. Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra did a few interviews together. And fresh from a secret wedding ceremony in Morocco last week, Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre beamed as they accepted congratulations.

10. All Hail, Queen Nicki

Being the last to arrive at the Met Gala is always a power play move. Just ask Madonna. This year, that honor went to Nicki Minaj. At around 9 p.m., the Queen Bee rapper was still slowly chatting with reporters as the carpet closed down, proving — in case you had any doubts — that she had the stamina to outlast everyone else on New York’s biggest night for fashion.
