This year, “camp” is being celebrated at the Met Gala with this year’s theme being Camp: Notes On Fashion.” Looks like Bjork’s iconic swan dress will be on exhibition as other more serious, political and historical items will be featured. It is actually Susan Sontag’s essay from the 60’s “Notes On Camp” that was dedicated to Oscar Wilde that is the inspiration behind the theme! This “camp”, isn’t that of tents and roasted marshmallows it’s that of standing out and a love for the unnatural. Curious about what this entails?

As one of the co-chairs of this annual fashion event Gaga is making waves on the Met Gala Red Carpet, yet again. As one of the most influential artists of the year, her bright blonde bob and bright pink dress, and then the lack of it, is totally turning heads.
From pink to black and then back to pink and then black again – ending in a black bra and underwear set and fishnet stockings. What we loved even more than her longer than life lashes were the bows in her hair that matched her dress!
Chin Grazing Goodness
Making her Met Gala debut in a beautiful Tory Burch gown, Ella Balinska wears silver layers of tiered fabric with s sparkly finish! The shape of her dress mimics the silhouette echoed in her "clean bob". The hair was created by the talented Nai'vasha. Using minimal product, this allowed the style to have an effortless effect.

Get The Look:
- After cutting Ella’s hair into a bob hair cut, I used a nickel size of Thermasmooth Sleek Guard Heat Protectant
- Smoothed the hair with my flat iron
- Finished the look with MIZANI HRM Styling and Lived-In Finishing Spray
- Lastly used 25 Miracle Nourishing Oil on the ends for extra shine
The Long & Short Of It
When it came to men’s fashion, Harry Styles showed up in a sheer bowed blouse, black trousers and patent heeled boots. Walking the red carpet with Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele who donned a pink set with a plethora of bows itself. When it came to hair, their looks greatly juxtaposed each other showing off the short and long of things, leading the way for a season of “anything goes” when it comes to men’s fashion and styling!
The color that is proving the most popular this year is platinum blonde! From Kris Jenner to Mindy Kaling, blonde bobs and lengthy platinum locks add flair to any outfit. We absolutely love the way Mindy’s blonde hair accentuates her gold gown.
Add A Little Sparkle
Celine Dion deserves her own exhibition! Not only is that woman a fabulous performer, she looks absolutely amazing, dripping in sparkles from head to toe! With a fabulous headpiece and a smokey eye, we don't think accessories will be going anywhere this season!
The Olsen Twins - with their always iconic style, prove that laid back vibes are always in style. With varying shades or blonde and bronde, we're absolutely loving their leather getups and their mermaid locks.
