Tomorrow is the Met Gala! Lady Gaga, Harry Styles, and Serena Williams will co-chair.
This year's theme is Camp: Notes on Fashion. Apparently the theme is confusing to the celebrity guests, who did not initially understand what "camp" is. Allegedly, multiple celebrities had to ask Anna Wintour and the gala organizers what the theme meant.
"Camp" does not mean camping in the wilderness. Wikipedia says, "Camp is an aesthetic style and sensibility that regards something as appealing because of its bad taste and ironic value." Susan Sontag wrote a famous essay called "Notes on Camp."
Many A-listers were not happy with the theme. One actress was afraid that she wouldn't look pretty if she wore a "campy" outfit.
Anna Wintour personally selects every single guests. Some people have been unofficially banned by her.
The Met Gala apparently has many hoity-toity rules that everyone must follow.
No cell phones
No stinky food
