Met Gala’s camp theme left a lot of us confused as to what it actually meant. However, I believe these celebrities brought the camp theme to life for us all. This year’s theme paid homage to Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay, Notes on “Camp.” The Met Gala theme, Camp: Notes on Fashion, allowed party goers to interpret the meaning through their looks with exaggerated pieces that were playful, artful, and even theatrical. It was a chance for the risk takers in Hollywood to shine! This theme gave stylists and stars alike the chance to interpret their own meaning of Camp. Let’s take a look at some stars who embodied the camp theme and certainly made a huge statement on the red carpet.

7. Lady Gaga in Brandon Maxwell

The sun is officially out! The weather is heating up. It’s time to bring out the shades to withstand the sun’s wrath! What styles are we wearing this year, you ask? Let’s take a look at some of the trendiest sunglasses for spring/summer 2019.
1. Cat eye Frames
Sunglasses with a cat eye frame formerly were worn strictly by lovers of retro style. These frames have since been reimagined from a retro 60’s look to a modernized style staple.

From the Beale Street Music Festival to Bonnaroo, there are a number music festivals happening this year. There are 2 things that you know for certain will occur at any music festival you attend: the music will be blasting from the concert stage, and the people around you will dressed in their most festive (some peculiar) looks.

Deciding what to wear to one of these festivals doesn’t have to be difficult. Here are 7 stylish show stopping festival outfits.
