Camp: Notes on Fashion was the theme for the 2019 Met Gala. This camp theme is not what you would expect at all. According to Bazaar, the night was inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay, with a more over the top definition of camp. As usual, this awesome night of fashion was filled with over the top styles worn by our favorite celebrities. What stood out to me though, were the celebrities of color who came ready to SLAY!

Here are my favorite black celebs of the night.

I rarely dislike anything Cardi B wears, she is very unique and allows what she wears to reflect that rarely caring what anyone thinks. This Thom Browne dress is a bold reminder of who she is.

Does anyone else get Diana Ross vibe here? I got it immediately, and it has been there reference made again and again about this stunner rocked by Ciara. And the hair!

Lupita Nyong’o is my favorite celebrity of color. Her empowering story is one that many young black girls can relate to and her rise to fame has been an exciting one to watch. So, of course, she has to be on the list. She was a vision with her eccentric, bold look. Another natural hair style to behold.

A revamp of the mad hatter? I get serious Alice in Wonderland with a twist vibes here and I love it. Janelle Monae oozes confidence and it is contagious.

Haven’t heard of Lizzo? Enter her name in your spotify search and thank me later. I haven’t been that huge of a fan of pink in a long time, but Lizzo makes it look great!
