Katy Perry arrives at Met Gala as a CHANDELIER… before hamming it up in BURGER costume

Katy Perry had a real light bulb moment on the red carpet at the Met Gala on Monday.

The pop star was determined to outshine other stars at the iconic New York event dubbed ‘fashion’s biggest night.’

The 34-year-old pop act came dressed as a chandelier, swanning about in a Moschino ensemble covered in Swarovski crystals.

Her ensemble featured two tiers of lightbulb flames around her waistline, plus another one encircling her towering headpiece.

Katy, who is currently engaged to Pirates Of The Caribbean heartthrob Orlando Bloom, was stag when she attended this year’s Met Ball.

Her mini-dress was hemmed at mid-thigh, and a few jeweled straps connected it to an elaborate choker that clashed against her platinum bob.

Katy, who was reportedly paid $25 million to join the American Idol judges panel, could be seen sharing a handshake with Diane Von Furstenberg this Monday.

Diane, the fashion designer and wife of Barry Diller, wore a Statue Of Liberty costume complete with a fake torch she held up for the cameras.

Once she got to the afterparty stage of the evening, the Swish Swish singer switched outfits and dressed up as a hamburger.

Rita Ora used her Insta Stories to give her fans a glimpse of Katy’s outfit, which included a toothpick sticking out the top.

The glittering silver base of her headpiece appeared to be recycled from the Moschino chandelier outfit she modeled earlier in the evening.

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

Anna Wintour has the final say over each person on the guest list

 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…?

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.
