  • Harry Styles to Co-chair for the Met Gala 2019 with Lady Gaga and Serena Williams for a Timely Theme

Harry Styles will be welcoming guests at the Met Gala 2019 along with Lady Gaga and Serena Williams to a trendy theme of “Camp: Notes on Fashion”

The preparations for the Met Gala 2019 are officially underway. Among the few things that are confirmed before each event are the celebrity co-chairs of the event with Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

The celebrity co-chairs for the Met Gala 2019 have been announced which include; the boy band sensation turned Rockstar, Harry Styles, the fashion icon and possible Oscar contender next year, Lady Gaga and the force on the tennis court, Serena Williams.

All three celebrities join the ranks of great celebrity co-chairs of the past which include names like Rihanna, Beyoncé, Amal Clooney, Donatella Versace, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and Marc Jacobs. Harry Styles have immersed himself in a ‘David Bowie-esque’ style that compliments the high end risqué fashion that Lady Gaga has supported throughout her career and, mixed with the sporty goodness of Serena Williams; the theme for this year makes these celebrity co-chairs a very sensible choice.

The theme for this year is “Camp: Notes on Fashion”. The theme is based on Susan Sontag’s seminal 1964 essay “Notes on ‘Camp’”, explained Alessandro Michelle, creative director of Gucci while he was interviewing with New York Times. He further explained the theme, “Camp really means the unique ability of combining high art and pop culture; it is not kitsch.

The Met exhibition will give contemporary significance to Sontag’s perspective,” Bolton also explained why the theme is significant at this point in time, “We are going through an extreme camp moment, and it felt very relevant to the cultural conversation to look at what is often dismissed as empty frivolity but can be actually a very sophisticated and powerful political tool, especially for marginalized cultures. Whether it’s pop camp, queer camp, high camp, or political camp—Trump is a very camp figure—I think it’s very timely.”

The idea behind the theme is to highlight the cultural diversity through the scope of fashion. Fashion has become an expressive form of art which helps in signifying the historical benchmarks.

While stars may struggle to make their outfits for this year’s Met Gala as significant as the theme while also taking caring to not overstep any boundaries. The co-chairs chosen for the themed event are inspiration themselves.

With Harry Styles representing an open minded youth susceptible to change, Lady Gaga is a strong spokesperson for equality while Serena Williams is a strong figure in women empowerment movement. It would be interesting to see what looks Harry Styles, Lady Gaga and Serena Williams flaunt on the red carpet of the event.
