Wizarding World Stars Bring Magic to the Met Gala

On May 6, stars from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts movies attended the Met Gala, an annual event that aims to raise funds and celebrate the theme of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s newest exhibition. Keep reading to find out how the stars brought the magic to the pink carpet in true wizarding world style for this year’s theme, “Camp: Notes on Fashion.”

After paying tribute to Hedwig with his Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald outfit, the bar was definitely set high for Ezra Miller’s (Credence Barebone) Met Gala look. Speaking to Vice, Miller aired his thoughts about this year’s theme, and what “camp” means to him.

The celebration of camp is almost funereal…it’s almost like it dies as it walks in the room. But I think it consumes the other as well. I think it’s like fire and oxygen.

Miller certainly didn’t disappoint, wearing a pinstripe corset and cape that even Cornelius Fudge would be proud of. The main feature of this look, however, was the additional five eyes on Miller’s face! Some will say it’s makeup, but we’re sure it’s magic.

 

 

Miller’s Crimes of Grindelwald costar Zoë Kravitz (Leta Lestrange) also attended this year’s Met Gala, wearing a stunning black sequined gown.

 

 

Kravitz took to Instagram to share her look with her fans, posting some pictures taken before stepping onto the pink carpet.

Gemma Chan (Madam Ya Zhou) also took to the Met Gala pink carpet with an extravagant silver ensemble inspired by actress Elizabeth Taylor. Speaking to British Vogue, Chan spoke of her excitement to attend her first Met Gala, “I was very happy to go all out. If you’re invited to a party and there is a theme, it’s good manners to have a go at it.”

 

 

Finally, this was also Hero Fiennes-Tiffin’s (young Tom Riddle) first Met Gala appearance. He took to the pink carpet wearing a black suit with a blue ruffled shirt and laces as a bow tie.

I was given a copy of Philosopher's Stone in 2001, and instantly, I was hooked. Since then, my passion for Potter has been equaled only by my passion for fair access to education (and watching motorsport). A spell I wish could exist in the Muggle world is the summoning charm because this Hufflepuff is not a "particularly good finder"!
