Katy Perry Is a Literal Chandelier at the 2019 Met Gala

Update: she was also a hamburger.

Katy Perry literally lit up the 2019 Met Gala.  

The songstress stepped onto the red carpet on Monday (May 6) as a human chandelier in three layers of electronic candles (one of which was a hat) surrounding her glittery silver Moschino dress.   

Perry's look aligns perfectly with the costume theme of “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” curated by Andrew Bolton, which is a play on writer Susan Sontag’s seminal essay, “Notes on Camp.” The theme aims for guests to explore fashion's tones of theatricality, humor and exaggeration, complete with over-the-top designs.   

Update: Perry then changed into a hamburger outfit for the after parties -- toothpick and all -- making the switch in the Metropolitan Museum of Art bathroom.

See her looks below.
