Celebrities, models and designers packed in the iconic Stonewall Inn ahead of the hotly anticipated Met Gala.

The Met Gala – known as the fashion Olympics – celebrates the opening of the spring exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It is one of the most popular fashion exhibits in the world and its opening is one of the most watched fashion events.

This year’s theme is ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’ a nod to the queer history of design. Notable LGBTI celebrities will be in attendance including, RuPaul, Indya Moore and Lena Waithe.

But the grand event may have been upstaged by Vogue’s pre-Met Gala Party. Called Cotton Campy, Vogue hosted the party at Stonewall Inn which this year celebrates the 50th anniversary of the infamous riots there which would go on to spark a global LGBTI rights movement.

RuPaul’s Drag Race winner, Aquaria, hosted the event. Other celebrities to attend included Tracee Ellis Ross, Laverne Cox, Kacey Musgraves, Marc Jacobs and Keiynan Lonsdale.
