MET 2019: Our Favorite Looks From The Pink Carpet

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at UCLA chapter.

The first Monday of May is one of the best nights of the year for the fashion industry. The Met Gala, held by the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, is infamous for its amazing themes that allow its attendees to express themselves through their outfits. This year’s theme was “Camp: Notes on Fashion” which gives a lot of room to really go wild and over the top with the outfits. Although some people stay within the theme while also looking amazing, there are others who are just plain underwhelming. However, the following celebrities proved they did not attend to play around. Their outfits absolutely slayed. Check out some of our favorite looks from the night below! 

Lady Gaga 

There are no words to describe how amazing Lady Gaga looked. She won the night by revealing 4 different outfits, before even entering the MET.

Ryan Murphy

While most of the men attending the gala chose to play it safe with a black tux, Ryan Murphy proved he could pull off any color. His outfit is the definition of camp and fashion. 

Celine Dion 

Celine Dion proving that not only is she a musical icon, but also a fashion icon. 

Rachel Brosnahan 

Marvelous she truly is. This outfit is beyond beautiful. 

Saoirse Ronan 

FIERCE is the perfect word for this look. The outfit is a bold red with sleeves that make her look like a beautiful dragon. 

Emily Blunt 

Emily Blunt can pull anything off. Whether she’s dressed up as Mary Poppins or a golden goddess. 

Alex Chung

The dress is very camp, but also very cute. Definitely one of my favorites. 

Anderson Paak 

Once again, we love it when men go outside the box. This outfit is everything, but traditional. 

Lucy Boyton 

A beautifull fairy. I love the color schemes. I love the hair piece. I love her hair. I love it all. 

Gigi Hadid

Gigi Hadid is one of the queens of the Met Gala. Ever since she started attending, her outfits have just gotten better with each year. 

Naomi Campbell 

Naomi Campbell has been slaying fashion shows for over two decades. This pink looks so beautiful on her. 

Kendall Jenner 

Although I’m not a huge fan of the Kardashian family, this outfit is amazing. Orange is hard to pull off, but Kendall Jenner is killing in this outfit.

Gemma Chan

Queen. The headpiece and the outfit are absolutely gorgeous. Gemma Chan always holds herself with so much elegance. 


Cinderella who? We don’t know her. We are here for Princess Zendaya. Easily one of the top outfits of the night. It glowed

Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse 

Can we say, relationship goals? Lili looks like a modern Marie Antoinette and Cole Sprouse is one of the unique men who chose not to go with a boring tux. 

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas 

The newly weds look like real life superheroes. Both slayed in matching outfits. 

Florence Welch 

Yet another person who looks like a beautiful fairy. 

Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter

We love a fashionable couple. Both extremely stylish outfits. 

Elle Fanning

I am loving everything about this 70s outfit. It gives me modern I Dream of Jeannie vibes, and I am here for it. 

Darren Criss

The makeup, the outfit, the confidence. It’s all great. Who says only women can rock makeup? Darren Criss is shutting that noise down. 

Madelaine Petsch

Iconic red hair with an iconic pastel teal dress. The dimensions and the colors that are popping out are truly beautiful. 

Hamish Bowles 

This outfit refuses to be ignored. It is screaming CAMP, and it’s deserving of all the attention that Hamish Bowles deserves. 

21 Savage

Although bordering on the safer side, the jacket saves the day. It’s an interesting pattern that he truly is able to pull off. 

Jared Leto 

He took the saying “two heads are better than one” and he made it fashion. 

Lupita Nyong’o 

She makes the rainbow look ugly. The colors are everywhere and so eye catching. It’s breathtaking. 

 Cardi B 

Cardi B is always here to steal the show, and her outfit does exactly that. 

Ezra Miller 

I am deceased. Ezra Miller is known for pulling off outfits that nobody would ever think of, and he proved it once again tonight. 

Nina Dobrev

Who ever said that dresses had to made out of frabric? A truly unique outfit that took engineers to be created. The lack of being able to sit down is definitely worth giving up over this awesome dress. 

Camila Mendes and Charles Melton 

Although they are not totally coordinating, the individual outfits work. The colors are great and of course, we love this relationship. Couples did not come to mess around this year. 

Katie Holmes 

One of the most beautiful purples I have ever seen. This dress is a masterpiece. 

Hailee Steinfeld

Talk about a fashion statement. 

Emma Roberts 

Last but not least, the beautiful Emma Roberts. This beautiful tulle dress is like a blooming flower. 

This year’s theme for the Met Gala offered so much room to go wild. The night allowed celebrities to express themselves in ways they might not have been able to before. It was truly a gala full of iconic outfits that will go down in fashion history.
