The official opening of Eurovision will happen today with the Orange Carpet (last year in Lisbon it was Blue) at Habima Square in Tel Aviv, where this year's artists will parade and many Met Gala style outfits will circulate.
The Met Gala happened last week in New York and of course, it was spoken by the outfits the American stars used. The Met Gala 2019 theme was "Camp: Notes on Fashion." Like it or not, galas like this will be immortalized in photos that show eccentricity, power and creativity.
And here in Europe, at the most Camp Show of the Year, Eurovision, fans are the most critical! In fact, there is even a website that awards the prize "Barbara Dex Award" where the worst dressed Eurovision is awarded. This week, fans become fashion and creativity critics where sometimes they do not let people's creativity fly. What is different is often called horrible what is most appealing is sometimes ridiculed.
Yes, in this Eurovision where a woman with a beard is idolized and where it is appealed to difference and respect sometimes fans are the most cruel. Complicated this way of thinking and understanding the others! Everything is relative but let's remember the concept of Eurovision - Peace and Tolerance. Stop a bit to think, how would you go to Eurovision if you had to draw attention and to appeal to the vote in this increasingly visual event? Nobody is forced to like the way others dress but please, respect!
Happy Eurovision to all! Enjoy Eurovision!
