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?

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn

College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.
