You Won't Be Seeing Any of These Stars at the 2019 Met Gala — Because They've Been Banned

By

The first Monday in May is just around the corner, and you know what that means: Your Instagram feed is about to be flooded in gowns, crowns, and red carpet photos of celebrities arriving at the steps of the Met Gala. Because it's essentially reality television IRL, the evening can be pretty riveting if you're the kind of social media voyeur who's curious about who's dating who, which stars are representing which designers, and above all, judging what everyone is wearing.

Especially because the point of the elaborate affair is technically to support the Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute, which dictates a specific theme each year. This year, the theme is Camp — and we're honestly more excited than we were last year, when it was "Heavenly Bodies" (AKA, Sunday's Best) or three years ago when it was "Manus X Machina." Don't even get us started about Rei Kawakubo's 2017 Comme des Garçons tribute.
