The biggest night in fashion came and went last night, but we still can’t get over how these Latinos brought high fashion to the pink carpet this year. The theme was “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” formally in reference to Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay, Notes on “Camp.” Celebrities showed up and gave us all of the playful campy vibes we could handle.

Believe that while many guests played it safe–including most men who showed up in black suits, these Latinos came to deliver.

Cardi B stole the show and wore the red carpet.

The carpet this year was pink, in homage to the playful theme. In Cardi’s Instagram story later that evening, we see her eating pizza and watching Met Gala coverage while shouting, “Thom Browne! Thom Browne!” at the TV. She, and the rest of us, are in love with the designer, too.

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez captured the theme with all the elegance.

J.Lo wore full-length Versace gown and apparently, fiancé Alex Rodriguez asked his Instagram followers to vote between a pink or a black tux. We’re glad he went pink.

Maluma arrived at the Met Gala for the first time looking dashing, even though everyone ignored him.

Maluma understands fashion like nobody. Apparently, Celine Dion didn’t understand what the ‘camp’ theme meant until the last moment. Bravo, Maluma. We see you and we love it.

Camila Mendes and boyfriend Charles Melton were looking chic af.

“I feel like a nugget amongst chicken selects,” Mendes told W Magazine as she was prepping for the Gala. She’s wearing head to toe Prabal Gurung and real ostrich feathers!

Meanwhile, Tessa Thompson’s ponytail was an actual whip.

Needless to say, everyone is feeling like Paper Magazine in this tweet:

Dear @TessaThompson_x,
You could step on me. 
Sincerely,
The lesbian behind this account 

Indya Moore appeared to her first Met Gala in full camp regalia.

Facts: camp culture is queer culture, and our queer family showed up tonight. Billie Porter himself was carried by six men on a chariot into the show.

We were so excited to see MJ Rodriguez at the Met Gala for the first time!

And she was excited too! Check out her Instagram caption:

BIG SHOUT OUT TO GALAM

Salma Hayek wore tulle tutu’s around her arms.

She also had a crown in her high bun. We loved this elegant yet daring look for this kind of event.

Bestie Penelope Cruz wore a stacked skirt gown.

The color choices here are the furthest away from camp we’ve seen, but the longer you stare at the skirt, the more daring it seems. Of course, Cruz is as bella as ever.

Zoe Saldana gave us a sequin dress with orchids in her hair.

We love that it’s her eyeshadow that brings both the sequins in her dress and the bright purple flowers in her hair together. Brava.

Thalia made us all wonder if her moonlit gown was lined with an ode to starry space.

@mtcjr81 / Twitter

Camp is all about sparking questions and intrigue. Thalia delivered and got us all excited about the rest of the pink carpet. Get it, Thalia.

Meanwhile, La La Anthony’s dress was inspired by that dinero.

The consensus is in: Latinos brought their A game and collectively won the 2019 Met. But this is all just appearances. Wait till you find out the drama behind the scenes.

Anyone who ever doubted whether or not Cardi B makes bloody moves ought to see what she wore to the Met Gala last night.

The “Please Me” rapper ruled the red carpet at last night’s big event in a massive quilted gown by Thom Browne. She looked stunning, sexy, wondrous, campy (to match the gala’s theme)… she looked like a walking, talking campaign for Kotex.

Cardi B stunned in a massive gown that featured a train and a whole lot of ox-blood-colored dye.

If you didn’t already know, this year’s Met Gala theme was “Camp: Notes on Fashion” which is in the simplest of terms a display of flamboyance and the push of boundaries. No doubt, Cardi B took hold of the reins of this concept and went flying.

Like, if that cape couldn’t take off…

We always knew pads had wings… but we didn’t know they were feminist/ fabulous.

According to Vogue, the rappers gown took 35 people and over 2,000 hours to make. It took 10 people to hold her train for her as she walked the carpet.

And we’re not the only ones who have this theory about Cardi’s theme.

Just about everyone on Twitter is saying she looks like a period dream.

And of course Cardi got some praise for her husband Offset.

The rapper praised his wife for setting fire to the Gala last night.

Or at least the one you wake up to on your period.

Yas girl be the queen who displays her POWER. Literally the bloodiest costume of all time.

Some fans had other theories…

In an interview the gown’s designer KIND of confirmed the period theory.

Brown told Vogue in an interview that he “designed this dress for Cardi specifically because she has the ultimate beauty in a woman’s body, and that is what the dress is about for me: taking advantage of that beauty.”
