Met Gala 2019: Best and worst-dressed on the red carpet

It's the most OTT celebration on the celebrity calendar, and with this year's theme of 'Camp', today's Met Gala hasn't disappointed those who love a bold, borderline ridiculous red carpet.

Wearing four separate looks, Lady Gaga has turned heads at the biggest fashion event of the year.

The Oscar-winner, 32, sported a billowing Brandon Maxwell-designed gown on the dusty pink-coloured carpet in New York, before removing the top layer, to reveal a strapless black dress underneath.

But it didn't stop there. The A Star is Born actor went a step further, emerging in a figure-hugging fuchsia frock, before stripping down to her bra, knickers, and a pair of fishnet stockings teamed with huge platform boots.

She is truly living up to this year's theme Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute's theme "Camp: Notes on Fashion", with Vogue describing it as a "feather and flounce-filled fantasia".

The event, staged by US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, is being co-chaired by Gaga, along with Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele, Harry Styles and Serena Williams.

There's one word for that entire spectacle: CAMP. Lady Gaga, chantay you stay.

In true Kim Kardashian West fashion, the reality star has turned up to the Met Gala leaving very little to the imagination.

The 38-year-old business mogul, a red-carpet regular at the annual event, walked the pink carpet in a completely sheer, wet-looking short bodycon dress.

Fit with plunging neckline and dangling crystal details, Kardashian West paired her dress with wet, wavy hair and dramatic smoky eyes.
