This year’s Met Gala theme was “camp.” No, not summer camp, though that became a quickly tired joke online. The theme (in celebration of the museum’s new “Camp: Notes on Fashion” exhibit) was inspired by writer Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on Camp.”

“It is not a natural mode of sensibility, if there be any such. Indeed the essence of Camp is its love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration,” Sontag wrote, and concluded, “The ultimate Camp statement: it’s good because it’s awful.”

Celebrities were more than happy to take on this challenge — here were some of the most-discussed moments from Monday night’s red carpet.

*Lady Gaga’s many layers.

* Cardi B’s second Met Gala.

Last year, the rapper made her Met Gala debut. This year, she was determined to outdo herself — at least with the length of her train, which required its own entourage.

* Katy Perry’s chandelier.

With the shocking absence of Met Gala mainstay Sarah Jessica Parker, someone had to take the prize for most wild headpiece. Looks like Perry was one contender. (Cue the “it was lit” jokes.)
