Jennifer Lopez and Donatella Versace's Met Gala outfits had jaws hitting the floor as they stepped out on the pink carpet at the 2019 Met Gala on Monday, May 6.
The duo arrived at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on fashion's biggest night, proving that they are impossible of being found guilty of any fashion faux pas and proving that they are experts at the event’s theme, "Camp: Notes on Fashion."
For the outing, Lopez wore a crystal encrusted, low-cut, high leg slit dress, while Versace donned lime green locks and a matching gown, which boasted an array of colors on the sheer bodice and the words “divine” on the skirt.
The night’s theme was inspired by Susan Sontag's 1964 essay in which she defines the phenomena as a "love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration,” and according to Twitter users, both Lopez and Versace nailed the theme right on its head.
The duo’s style choices even landed them on a number of best-dressed lists compiled by fans who were tuning in for the night from home.

“You made me feel so beautiful so many times. So perfect. Your attention to detail, your talent and your love will never be forgotten. Thank you, Luigi, we will miss you,” she had concluded.
