Kylie showcased plenty of cleavage and her toned stomach in the glittering mermaid-style one-shouldered dress due to its low scoop neckline and cut-out sections just under the bust. 

A giant green feather boa amped up the drama, while her matching electric green wig tied the whole look together. 

With such an eye-catching outfit, Kylie kept her accessories to a minimum, with perspex heels and silver drop earrings.

Earlier on in the evening, Kylie headed down the Met Gala’s pink-themed carpet in a stunning  purple Versace dress. 

The reality star donned a lavender wig that matched her feathered designer frock.

Kylie showcased her ample cleavage in the pale purple number, which featured a strapless nude bodysuit peeking through the mesh design.

The mother of one’s curvy hips were on full display in the designer piece; the number had see-through elements along the skirt before becoming feathered by the bottom.

Kylie was joined by sisters Kendall and Kim  as well as her mum Kris for the annual fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. 

It is the most glittery and exclusive event on the New York fashion calendar.

It is famous for attracting luminaries of Hollywood, of fashion, music, sports, TV and the stage for an evening of fashion and charity to mark the museum’s spring exhibit.

This year, the exhibit and gala are dedicated to the idea of ‘camp,’ as defined by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay Notes on ‘Camp.’   

‘Fashion is the most overt and enduring conduit of the camp aesthetic,’ said Andrew Bolton, curator in charge of the Costume Institute and creator of its blockbuster shows. Bolton said the 2019 show would ‘advance creative and critical dialogue about the ongoing and ever-evolving impact of camp on fashion.’

The exhibit will feature approximately 175 objects, not only clothing but also sculptures, paintings, and drawings.

Designers to be featured in the show include: Cristóbal Balenciaga, Thom Browne, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Charles James, Christian Lacroix, Karl Lagerfeld, Prada, Versace and many more.

The Camp: Notes on Fashion exhibit will run from May 9 through Sept. 8.

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.
