Stars are finishing up their looks and getting ready for tonight's (May 6) Met Gala 2019.
For tonight, New York City is now the fashion capital of the world where it will be playing host to celebrities from every area of fashion, entertainment, music, and more at the famous Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The night benefits the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute. The event is held on the first Monday in May annually. The gala raises money for the Costume Institute (fashion department).

Each year the gala has a theme, this year the theme is "campy." According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary campy is "A style or mode of personal or creative expression that is absurdly exaggerated and often fuses elements of high and popular culture.” Basically, the stars will be going all out in the most excessive and extravagant way tonight with their looks. The red carpet this year is even pink! The official hashtag for the event "#MetGala" even includes a flamingo emoji.

Check out the photos and videos below of celebrities getting ready for tonight's big event. Be sure to stay tuned to see what they wear!
