Lady Gaga, Serena Williams & Harry Styles set to co-host 2019 Met Gala
For the 2019 edition of the popular Met Gala, the hosts have been announced. This year, Lady Gaga, Harry Styles and sportswoman Serena Williams will join Anna Wintour as hosts.
This year’s theme has been announced as “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” a riff on Susan Sontag‘s essay “Notes on Camp.”
Alessandro Michelle, creative director of Gucci, told the New York Times about the theme:
“Camp really means the unique ability of combining high art and pop culture; it is not kitsch. The Met exhibition will give contemporary significance to Sontag’s perspective.
The choices for hosts of the 2019 gala have had phenomenal years, with Gaga giving a critically acclaimed performance in the movie “A Star is Born“; Styles being the star of Gucci’s most recent ad campaign, and Serena launching her own fashion wear”.
