Ezra Miller & Harry Styles turned heads at the Met Gala

The motto of this year’s Met Gala was camp and camp it was. Ezra Miller and Harry Styles fit right in as you can see below. The New York Times has an extensive slide show of many of the creative outfits worn that night if you’re into that kinda thing ;)

  1. “Non-binary” Ezra Miller was amazing indeed, way above all others.
    Rapper Cardi B’s dress was great too, even after you knew it was supposed to represent women menstruation…

    There were a lot of horrors at this gala, though, or people wearing their costume without any conviction or style, like Harry Styles.
    Model Emily Ratajkowski was very sexy, but the NYT does not have good pictures of her.
    Celine Dion didn’t have a clue what “camp” was about and thought the theme was “camping”, like a party in the gardens of the Met. She learned about “camp” shortly before the gala, just in time.

    “Camp” comes from the French “se camper”, meaning knowing how to dress and behave and handle oneself like you belong at the Royal Court of Louis XIV in Versailles, standing up to the other rivals. Ezra Miller with his extravagant make-up and his mask was perfectly keeping with this theme.

    1. That’s not what it’s meant in the USA since the mid-50’s when it first came into use here.

    2. ““Camp” comes from the French ‘se camper’, meaning knowing how to dress and behave and handle oneself like you belong at the Royal Court of Louis XIV in Versailles, standing up to the other rivals.”

      That may be, but throughout my life, it’s always been to represent …. a [generally] feminized over the top attitude and gestures.

  2. ” … if you’re into that kinda thing ;)”

    Sorry. I’m not. But if I may draw a casual conclusion, a lot of New Yorkers have too little to do, and seem to have way too much time on their hands.

    1. For such a huge country USA is not exactly overflowing with artistic endeavour.
      Art is important.
      Art is extremely hard to define, certainly cannot be put into a shoebox but like music there will be moments where some human creation will just make you gasp and get your heart bouncing. Amazing how that works.

      Goofy dress up events maybe only goofy dress up events but difference is always worth it.

      It’s easy to be comfortable in baggy bluejeans and a buzzcut — that does nothing for humanity though. Zero thinking outside the box required.

      Wasting your life being stuck in a rut — conformity is of course the essence of organised religion and that is something you seem to hold on to. (Noting your posts on such topics)

      1. “It’s easy to be comfortable in baggy bluejeans and a buzzcut — that does nothing for humanity though. Zero thinking outside the box required.”

        So true.

  3. Sorry, fellas, I just think that all the talent herded together for the Met Gala could have better used that time and money to really benefit humanity, the arts, and civilization itself than staging a second Halloween – especially one sans Reese’s, Snickers. and M&Ms. WTF are they thinking?

    Let there be no confusion – I’m not against having fun (I have plenty of it). I just find this particular event silly, but far be it from me to decide the appropriateness of it – to each his own. It’s just not for me.

      1. Trump won’t be assassinated unless he either wins reelection, or beforehand if it appears in the polls that he is likely to win.

        1. He won’t need to be “assassinated” — The combination of his horrid diet, his weight and his narcissistic fear in the next 1.5 years will probably do it …. not to mention that he doesn’t have that much chance of winning THIS TIME.

  4. Well, it looks like when Harry Styles left One Direction, he clearly went the opposite direction.
