Celebrities, designers and fashion insiders all come out wearing the most showstopping looks for the annual fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute and this year is no exception.

This year's theme is "Camp: Notes on Fashion" and no, we’re not talking about tents or the outdoors. Described as extravagant, fun and tongue-in-cheek, the camp theme provided some of the most eye-catching and outrageous looks. From Lady Gaga's entrance featuring not one, not two, but four separate looks, to Billy Porter's arrival on a pedestal channeling Cleopatra, the gala served as a defining moment for the camp aesthetic.

Here are some of our favorite looks from the night:

Lady Gaga

Kicking off the night in camp style, Gaga, a co-host of this year's event, arrived at the gala in the most grandiose way, revealing not one but four separate and epic looks on the red carpet.
