Actors Keiynan Lonsdale (The Flash, Love, Simon) and Ezra Miller (Justice League, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them) will appear in a feature for the Met Gala's upcoming theme inspired by Susan Sontag's seminal book Notes on Camp, and they are serving lewks.
This year's exhibit "will take a look at camp fashion throughout history in the context of Sontag's definition of the style, exalting its 'love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration,'" according to Billboard.
The two can be seen in the latest issue of Vogue, which excited the hell out of Lonsdale, who took to Twitter to express his gratitude.

Michele in particular is a big fan of this year's theme, telling Billboard:
"I'm still kind of camp. I adore putting on something strange and exaggerated and worn in the wrong way. I mean, why not? It's not forbidden."
You bet it's not, and we're looking forward to seeing who pushes the envelope the most successfully.
