These celebs went blonde for Met Gala 2019, and they’re nearly unrecognizable

Drag queens, the masters of camp, are no strangers to emulating the blonde bombshells of our time: Marilyn Monroe, Barbie, Dolly Parton, Madonna, the list goes on. As Met Gala 2019 gets underway, some celebrities are using its theme, “Camp: Notes On Fashion,” to, say, get carried down the red carpet on a throne like a mythical god (we love you, Billy Porter). Other stars are celebrating campiness by following the blonde bombshell path, and these dramatic changes to their everyday looks have made them almost unrecognizable.
