Asian Celebs Got Fabulously ‘Camp’ on the Met Gala 2019 Red Carpet and WOW

Asian stars shone among the brightest celebs who walked the red carpet at this year’s Met Gala.

Considered as one of the world’s biggest fashion events, the annual Gala is held in New York every first Monday of May to celebrate the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s latest exhibition.  

This year’s exhibition is “Camp: Notes on Fashion” and guests matched the theme by being extra theatrical and colorful.  

“Crazy Rich Asians” stars Gemma Chan,  Constance Wu, and Awkwafina were among the standouts on the red carpet on Monday.

Chan is flawless, wearing Tom Ford with Forevermark jewels.
