Fashion's biggest night out, the Met Gala, is an annual fundraising event to benefit the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute.  Each year, a different theme is set and the glitterati bring it on the red carpet for all their worth. 

At this year's Met Gala, “camp” was the theme and not summer camp but outrageous, over-the-top and extravagant. Emily Blunt went gold, wearing a gold sequin-covered dress and bespoke gold headdress.

Hairstylist Laini Reeves@laini_reeves was inspired by the wet hair look on the runway from Michael Kors, and her own interpretation of camp, which for her evoked the 1970s, Studio 54, Lee Bowery meets Grace Jones with Cher vibes.
