The first Monday in May is always a day of joy for stylish New Yorkers, Hollywood fans, and fashion aficionados. It is the day everyone’s favorite A-listers dress up in their finest and wildest outfits to walk the red (or in this case, pink) carpet on the Metropolitan Museum steps. This year was no different. The bash’s theme was Camp: Notes on Fashion, a slogan which stars took to mean flashy, colorful, and over-the-top.
Actors, models, and media personalities showed up in wild movie-inspired looks and couture ensembles made to fit the vibrant party dress code.
When it came time to pose for photos at the 2019 Met Gala, the stars brought their A-game, and many of them went equally hard when it came to choosing their afterparty looks.
Lady Gaga turned heads with her four-piece outfit, and the Kardashian-Jenner clan made jaws drop with their sexy red-carpet looks and even sexier afterparty dresses.
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner made their red-carpet debut as a married couple at the event, but were not spotted at the high-profile afterparties. The newlyweds — who shocked everyone by tying the knot in a secret Las Vegas ceremony after the 2019 Billboard Music Awards — matched in colorful geometric Louis Vuitton by Nicolas Ghesquière looks. Sophie, 23, wore a jumpsuit, while Joe, 29, looked cool in a skin-tight turtleneck. The Game of Thrones actress finished her look with a shimmering metallic hairdo and glamorous blue eye makeup.
Friends In High Places
One of the hottest afterparty stars was Rita Ora, who, for the afterparty, who wore an elaborate head piece, a black top, and matching pants to the post-gala bash. After strutting down the pink carpet, she attended the party held at the Standard Hotel in New York along with famous model friend Kate Moss.
Serena Williams ditched the yellow skirt and cape she wore on the red carpet and kept only her corset top and red booty shorts for the bash. She paired the look with some matching sneakers and let her hair down for a more relaxed look.
Hungry For Attention?
Style Of A Billionaire
Bella Hadid looked stunning in an elegant black gown with jeweled cutouts on the pink carpet, She finished her look with a series of jewel encrusted bracelets and Emerald drop earrings. For the bash, however, she went for a more relaxed, street vibe, rocking a graphic print semi-sheer two piece with the word “forever” across the front.
Her sister Gigi Hadid looked like a snow queen in a silver Michael Kors Collection jumpsuit with a custom hat made for her by Stephen Jones. Her white eye makeup was dramatic and glamorous, just like the rest of her extraordinary look. The supermodel wore the same outfit to the afterparty but removed the elaborate cape that was attached.
Less Is More
Kendall Jenner matched her sister on the pink caret by wearing a bright orange Versace feathered gown. But for the afterparty, she kept it minimal and elegant with a white skirt suit and black heels.
Hailey Baldwin ditched her beautiful pink Alexander Wang gown and diamond thong for an oversized white dress shirt and sequined boxer briefs. She was all smiles while showing off her relaxed, modern style at the Met Gala afterparty with her pals.
Kim Kardashian also gave up her skin-tight nude Manfred Thierry Mugler dress — which looked like it was dripping wet — for a bright blue latex mini-dress, matching gloves, clear platform heels. She topped it all off with a shimmery silver-and-blue tinsel fringe wig.
