Lena Dunham’s ensemble for the 2019 Met Gala was outlandish, but it wasn’t camp.

Dunham’s latex, pink Christopher Kane dress read “rubberist” and had rubber gloves printed on it.

The exhibition for the 2019 camp event was supposed to examine “how the elements of irony, humor, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality, and exaggeration are expressed in fashion,” as stated on the Metropolitan Museum website.

Although Dunham’s outfit was over the top, its overt message didn’t encompass camp.
