The first week of summer might have kept us less eventful in Bollywood, but it was definitely not the case on the other side of the world. New York City hosted the 71st Met Gala on 6th May, at the Metropolitan Museum of Arts. The theme for this year was ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’.
Met Gala 2019 was inspired by Susan Sontag’s essay ``Notes on ‘Camp’. The theme introduces the idea of Camp Fashion which is defined by stylization, artifice, dramatization, irony, playfulness, and exaggeration of fashion which is appealing for its quirk rather than its content.
This international fashion extravaganza sees a lot of Bollywood stars participating in the celebration of fashion and art. This year, taking the center stage with world celebrities were two superstars of our own – Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra. Known for their feat in global fashion, the two leading ladies stole all the attention on social media for their red carpet looks. And thus, they have become the Newsmakers of the week.
