Ezra Miller and Keiynan Lonsdale Featured in “Vogue” for Upcoming Met Gala
The Met Gala is one of the most anticipated fashion events of the year. While the event itself is a fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, the highlight of the night for those who can’t attend is seeing the incredible themed designs worn by actors, philanthropists, and other celebrities.
This year’s Met Gala will be held on Monday, May 9, and the theme is “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” inspired by Susan Sontag’s essay “Notes on ‘Camp.'” The essay explores the meaning of camp and its presence in fashion, most closely defined as esoteric, kitschy, and exaggerated, among other things:
What is extravagant in an inconsistent or unpassionate way is not Camp. Neither can anything be Camp that does not seem to spring from an irrepressible, a virtually uncontrolled sensibility. Without passion, one gets pseudo-Camp – what is merely decorative, safe, in a word, chic.
Not only is Ezra Miller known for his talent in acting, but he’s also been widely recognized for his eccentric and flamboyant fashion sense, which made him perfect for Vogue‘s feature ahead of this year’s Met Gala.
Miller is quite the style icon – some of his most memorable looks include his feathered poncho worn to the London premiere for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and his puffed dress from a Moncler x Pierpaolo Piccoli collaboration worn to the premiere in Paris.
In his Vogue feature, he poses with triple threat Keiynan Lonsdale wearing a piece from Thom Browne’s Spring 2018 collection, while Lonsdale wears Thom Browne Fall 2019. The rest of the article goes on to highlight true pioneers of camp in their respected areas like Andy Warhol and Oscar Wilde and the exploration of queerness in the world of campy fashion.
