It's that time of the year again—the first Monday in May—where public figures and celebrities dress to the nines according to a theme presented by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, New York. The Met Gala, which is arguably one of the most exclusive invite-only events in history, is held every year to raise money for the museum's costume institute and its spring exhibition.

The Met Gala is basically the Super Bowl for the fashion industry, being the most important night of the year for designers, models, celebrities and publications such as Vogue.

This year's gala took place on May 6, where Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele, Lady Gaga, Harry Styles and Serena Williams were co-chairs. This year's theme was "CAMP: Notes on Fashion," inspired by Susan Sontag's 1964 essay "Notes on Camp."

The notion of "camp," as Sontag put it, is "a vision of the world in terms of... a particular kind of style." She went on to say that camp is the love of the exaggerated, the "off," the "things-being-what-they-are-not."

Glen Weldon, a panelist on NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast, defined camp as "deliberately outrageous, challenging and subversive mocking." Weldon suggested that there has to be some sense of outrage in the outrageousness of camp.

With that being said, the attendees at this year's Met Gala brought CAMP to the table, from numerous outfit changes to light up gowns.

Like last year, this will be a review of the best dressed of the bunch. Here are this year's best dressed at "CAMP: Notes on Fashion."

From what was seen on the Met steps on May 6, no one is campier than Billy Porter, who was carried in by six shirtless men, and Lady Gaga, who busted out four different looks in 16 minutes. Whose looks made your jaw drop?

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
