The 2019 Met Gala co-chairs have been named!

Lady Gaga, Serena Williams and Harry Styles will co-chair the annual fashion event, alongside Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and Gucci's creative director Alessandro Michele, at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, the magazine announced on Tuesday. 

This year's theme, "Camp: Notes on Fashion", inspired by Susan Sontag’s iconic 1964 essay, "Notes on 'Camp,'" is somewhat more open to interpretation than past Met Ball themes, and sure to inspire a wide range of bold, over-the-top styles that'll make next year's red carpet the most dramatic yet. The Costume Institute's new exhibition will display the works of designers Marc Jacobs, Franco Moschino, Thom Browne, John Galliano, Elsa Schiaparelli and many more. 

Gaga, Williams and Styles join the superstar ranks of past Met Gala co-chairs, including Amal Clooney and Rihanna last year, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams in 2017, Taylor Swift in 2016 and Beyoncé in 2013, to name a few.

The choice of Gaga and Williams, in particular, is fitting, as both stars have donned gorgeous outfits at recent Galas. Williams revealed her baby bump on the 2017 carpet, where the then-pregnant tennis star wore a flowing green gown. Whereas Gaga fully embodied the "Manus X Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology" theme when the A Star Is Born leading lady attended in 2016.

Styles being appointed as one of the co-chairs doesn't come as a surprise either, considering Gucci -- an apt choice for the theme -- will be the Gala's sponsor. The former One Direction member is currently the face of the Italian brand's menswear collection and has donned countless pieces from the line on stage and on the red carpet. This will be the first time the singer attends the prestigious event, which will take place on May 6.
