All The Most OTT Red Carpet Looks From The Met Gala 2019

7 May 2019 by Chew Hui Ling

When it comes to the annual Met Gala Ball, it’s safe to say celebrities definitely don’t hold back on pulling out all the stops with their wildest, most outrageous looks imaginable – all in the name of camp fashion. From Katy Perry illuminating the red carpet as a bedazzled chandelier, to Lady Gaga bringing her camp A-game with not one but four different outfits, the 2019 Met Gala certainly didn’t disappoint. Ahead, check out our favourite OTT picks of the night.



Making a fairytale entrance in her glowing gown, Zendaya transformed into Cinderalla with the wave of a wand on the red carpet. As if we weren’t convinced that she’s a real-life princess, the 22-year-old did magic tricks and even left her glass slipper behind on the stairs. Boy, were we spellbound!

The Pitch Perfect 3 starlet made a tongue-in-cheek statement with her voluminous ruffled dress, which had the words “No photos please” emblazoned across her skirt while she posed with a camera bag in hand.

Cara Delevingne

You wouldn’t want to give cold shoulder to Saoirse Ronan when she was all armoured up in this badass sequinned dress – just check out her flamin’ shoulder pads!



Here’s Halsey channeling her inner Wonder Woman in a red two-piece ensemble coupled with golden cuffs on her arms. It seems like Gal Gadot’s got some competition!

Ezra Miller

Erza Miller

If there’s someone that we’d turn heads for, it would definitely have to be Ezra Miller. All eyes were on the actor when he arrived in a bizarre masked look with multiple sets of eyeballs painted on for an optical illusion effect.

Katy Perry

Bringing camp to life in a 40-pound chandelier dress, Katy Perry literally lit up the Met Gala red carpet as the singer paid homage to the theme of the night.

Lady Gaga

Can’t decide on what to wear to the Met Gala? Take it from Mother Monster, who stole the show with a total of four outfit changes – from a dramatic magenta gown, to a sweeping black number, to a vibrant pink dress complete with a retro cell phone and oversized sunnies, before finally stripping down to a matching black bra and underwear set. What a performance!
