WHAT TO EXPECT FOR 2019 GALA & A RECAP OF MET GALA 2018

APRIL 28, 2019

THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART’S ANNUAL COSTUME INSTITUTE GALA

EVERY YEAR, ON THE FIRST MONDAY OF MAY, FASHION’S BIGGEST FUNDRAISING EVENT IS HELD IN HONOR OF A NEW FASHION EXHIBIT.

EACH YEAR HAS A DIFFERENT THEME FOR ATTIRE.

2019 MET GALA

The whole point of Camp is to dethrone the serious. Camp is playful, anti-serious. More precisely, Camp involves a new, more complex relation to “the serious.” One can be serious about the frivolous, frivolous about the serious.

– Sontag’s 58 “jottings”

 

“WHERE DO ARTIFICE, EXCESS, EXTRAVAGANCE, IRONY, NOSTALGIA, AND INNOCENCE FIND COMMON GROUND? HAMISH BOWLES TRACES THE THREAD OF CAMP- FROM THE SUN KING TO DRAG QUEENS- IN ANDREW BOLTON’S NEW EXHIBITION AT THE COSTUME INSTITUTE.” 

– FROM VOGUE’S “BREAKING CAMP” STORY

DATE: MONDAY, MAY 7TH, 2019

THEME – “CAMP: NOTES ON FASHION”

ANDREW BOLTON HEAD CURATOR OF THE MET MUSEUM OF ART’S COSTUME INSTITUTE LARGELY CONTRIBUTES TO THE MET GALA ALONGSIDE ANNA WINTOUR. BOLTON  EXPLAINS THE CAMP THEME IS RELEVANT IN THIS MOMENT AND SOCIETY CHANGES TODAY.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS BLOG, IS TO EMPOWER AND INSPIRE INDIVIDUALS TO PURSUE THIER PASSION DAILY AND STRIVE TO BE THE BEST VERSION OF THEMSELVES. AS AN ADVOCATE FOR WOMEN, IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT BEAUTY IS NOT ONLY ABOUT VANITY AND EXTERNAL APPEARANCE, AND TO EMBRACE BEING EXCEPTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL WITHIN, BEING A “TRIPLE THREAT.” ONE WHO DISPLAYS ACTS OF KINDNESS, WELL VERSED AND EDUCATED, INDEPENDENT, EXUDING CONFIDENCE AND A HIGH SENSE OF SELF, IN ADDITION TO BEING GORGEOUS ALONG WITH AMBITION AND INTEGRITY IN THEMSELVES. I HOPE TO EMPOWER OTHERS TO ACHIEVE TRUE CONFIDENCE AND SUCCESS. NOW, TYPICALLY, I WOULD NOT TAKE ON SUCH A CHALLENGE, UNLESS I WAS HUMBLED BY LIFE WITH ONLY 2 CHOICES; SINK OR SWIM. NEVERTHELESS, I AM HERE TO LET YOU KNOW, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WAIT FOR LIFE TO HAPPEN TO BECOME THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELVES. WORK IT BECAUSE YOU’RE WORTH IT!! “DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THE WAYS OF THIS WORLD, BUT BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND.”
