Many went over-the-top at the 2019 Met Gala in celebration of the ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’ theme on Monday evening (May 6) in New York City. Cardi B went the extra mile — literally and figuratively
— with her dramatic look.
The ‘Please Me’ rapper filled much of the floor space at the event with the exaggerated train of her Thom Browne gown.
Add in the feathers, embellished headpiece, and figure-enhancing quilting and you have a look that is the definition of camp.
It also earns points for juxtaposing a moodier oxblood colour with carefully-placed contrasting panels.
Subversion is something that the designer does very well.
