In an exciting announcement, Lady Gaga is officially co-hosting the 2019 Met Gala alongside Anna Wintour, Alessandro Michele, Serena Williams, and Harry Styles.

Titled "Camp: Notes on Fashion", this spring the annual gala will explore the “love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration... style at the expense of content," and is shaped around the 1964 essay "Notes on ‘Camp'" by Susan Sontag. Tracing camp from the Victorian era to the Stonewall riots, "Camp: Notes on Fashion" will honor the presence and influence the tradition has on culture of past and its current state in modern times.

In an interview with the New York Times, curator Andrew Bolton says, “Sontag in her essay said not everything is camp, but since I have been working on the show, I have started to think it is everywhere, and that all fashion is on some level camp... It has gained such currency it has become invisible, and part of my goal is to make it visible again.”

It's about time Gaga gets her chance to co-host the affair and V will be waiting with bated breath until 2019's biggest night in fashion.
