Lady Gaga, Harry Styles, and Serena Williams are joining Vogue editor Anna Wintour as co-chairs of the 2019 Met Gala.
The theme for the prestigious event will be ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’, based on Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay ‘Notes on ‘Camp.’
Alessandro Michelle, creative director of Gucci, told the New York Times, “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.”
Anna Wintour has co-chaired the gala since 1995, and carefully selects a handful of celebrity co-chairs to join her every year.
Last year’s celebrity co-chairs were Amal Clooney, Rihanna, and Donatella Versace.
Other past co-chairs include Beyoncé,, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and Marc Jacobs.
The annual gala in New York City will be held on May 6, 2019, ahead of the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institution’s exhibit of the same name.
