The American singer’s evolving "camp" costume started things on a high note at this year's Met Gala

One of five hosts of the Met Gala this year, it’s no secret that Lady Gaga is a bonafide expert in the art of marrying fashion with showmanship. Already a ‘camp’ icon in her own right (let’s not forget that we’re talking about the woman responsible for introducing the term “meat dress” to the cultural glossary here) Lady Gaga’s red carpet performance at this year’s Met Gala was unlike anything the prestigious Costume Institute’s annual event has seen before.

Showing up in a hot pink parachute gown by designer Brandon Maxwell, complete with a 25-foot train channeling what we can only describe as Southern-belle-gone-wild, Gaga’s entourage of tuxedoed backing dancers performed a perfectly choreographed sequence, bowing and kowtowing around her using umbrellas as props. It is perhaps important here to note that the red carpet area was covered and it was not raining - extra camp points for Gaga.

But one look simply was not enough for Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta. The A Star is Born actress then began revealing layer after layer in a series of dramatic transformations, becoming a real-life Russian doll in the process. The first layer; black gown with an asymmetrical sweetheart neckline and a side bustle.

The second; an eye-searing hot pink, strapless column dress, which she accented with an enormous mobile phone prop that looked as though it was from another century.

But in true Lady Gaga form, her final sartorial-morph was the pièce de résistance. An ode to the campest of cabaret performances, she ended her red carpet romp in a sparkling bra and fishnet stockings, all the while pulling a pink wagon full of Maxwell’s bottles, hairspray, and clear purses, strutting up the stairs before retreating to strike a pose.

If there was ever any doubt as to who would own the 2019 Met Gala red carpet, make no mistake, Lady Gaga has stolen the show.
