She wore a short dress designed by Stuart Vevers for Coach. It had a high neckline, pearl buttons, and numerous prints from top to bottom.

Gevinson completed the look with heeled sandals, a black clutch, and statement red lipstick.

Liza Koshy made her first appearance at the fashion event in 2018.

On Instagram, the YouTube star said she was dressed by Vogue and Anna Wintour in an Alessandra Rich ensemble. She wore a long-sleeved minidress made from black lace, which made her outfit almost entirely see through.

Koshy also wore a black leotard underneath, a sparkling belt, red lipstick, and velvet ankle boots for the “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination Costume Institute Gala.”

Lilly Singh, who got her start on YouTube, walked the 2019 red carpet in a gradient gown inspired by lily flowers.

“Since people always spell my name ‘Lily’ I wanted a dress that represented me and who I am for my first #MetGala and @moschino came through!” the influencer wrote on Instagram at the time.

“For the hair, I wanted to pay tribute to them good Indian genes so I almost doubled the length of my regular hair with a long braid, topped with fresh orchids,” she continued. “And you better believe your girl is wearing sneakers under that dress 🤫😉.”

James Charles was also at the “Camp: Notes on Fashion” event in an Alexander Wang outfit that later caused some controversy.

His look included a see-through top made entirely from safety pins, a bandana necklace, shiny black cargo pants, pointed black boots, and an Alexander Wang logo belt and purse.

After the event, however, critics pointed out that Charles’ outfit was similar to the gold-and-black mesh ensemble Zoë Kravitz wore to the 2019 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, which the influencer criticized in a video with fellow YouTuber Tana Mongeau.
