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?

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).
