Met Gala 2019: Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian flout no-selfie rule

Leave it to selfie-obsessed Instagram stars Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez to flout Anna Wintour’s social media ban inside the Met Gala on Monday. 

Professional photos taken inside the New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art show the two celebrities posing for a pouty snap together with their partners. 

Lopez’s fifth fiance Alex Rodriguez took the shot while Kim’s third husband Kanye West joined in too. 

Wintour is widely reported to have a ‘no phones’ rule at the event, but many celebrities couldn’t resists posting photos and video on social media. 

The invitation-only event, famed for its A-list celebrities and haute couture gowns, is a benefit for museum and also marks the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit.

Kanye, who is known as a fashion maven and shoe designer as well as a rapper, went for a sedate ensemble featuring a Dickies jacket and matching charcoal trousers.

Inside the invite-only Met Gala: Anna Wintour approves the guest list… and stars pay $35,000 per seat

 The annual Met Gala extravaganza raises money for the museum’s Costume Institute kicks off the Met’s annual major fashion exhibition — look out, because the theme is ‘camp.’

And the more outrageous the outfit, the better for the Met Gala red carpet, where the A-listers strut their stuff, usually in the most eye-popping ensemble they can find to match the theme.

Last year, Rihanna showed up in full papal-esque regalia, and Madonna wore a regal black gown – with a see-through cross in the bodice – to go along with the ‘Heavenly Bodies’ concept.

Want a seat? They go for $35,000 a piece.

Attendance is by invitation only, and word has it that Vogue editor extraordinaire Anna Wintour has the final say over each person on the guest list.

Organizers did reveal a smattering of names last month — members of the so-called ‘host committee’ — and so expect to see Jennifer Lopez, Bradley Cooper, Katy Perry and Priyanka Chopra.

Wintour co-chairs the event this year with an eclectic mix of boldface names — Gucci designer Alessandro Michele, pop diva Lady Gaga, British singer Harry Styles and tennis superstar Serena Williams.

 

Met Gala 2019 theme: So what does ‘Notes on Camp’ mean…?

Lady Gaga’s dream theme! The pop star embraced ‘camp’ on the Met Gala red carpet 

So what exactly is ‘camp’?

The museum’s exhibition is based on ‘Notes on Camp,’ an essay written in 1964 by American author Susan Sontag.

‘Camp is by nature subversive (…) confronting and challenging the status quo,’ the Costume Institute’s head curator Andrew Bolton said Monday at a press event about the exhibition before the gala.

‘In the end, the purpose of camp is to put a smile on our faces and a warm glow in our hearts.’

Some of the items in the exhibition might best explain the theme: the ‘swan dress’ worn by Bjork to the Oscars, a glittering costume worn by flamboyant US singer Liberace, a shower head necklace designed by the late Karl Lagerfeld for Chloe in the 1980s.

‘We’re experiencing a resurgence of camp — not just in fashion, but in culture in general,’ said Bolton.

‘Camp tends to come to the fore in moments of social and political instability. The 1960s was one such moment as were the 1980s.’

The exhibition ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’ — a play on the title of Sontag’s essay — formally opens at the Met on Thursday and runs through September 8.
