Get dressed up! This year’s Met Gala guest lists included some of the hottest hunks in Hollywood, so it’s no major surprise that they brought the heat on the red carpet.
Famously dubbed “fashion’s biggest night out,” this year’s extravaganza took place on Monday, May 2. There were many stylish men in attendance, and their attires ranged from classic and timeless suits to bold and vibrant wares.
This year’s theme was “Gilded Glamour and White Tie” and a handful of celebs nailed it. They included Ryan Reynolds, Stormzy, Evan Mock And Riz Ahmed.
Ahmed’s look made a particularly powerful statement. The Sound of Metal An ensemble by 4S Designs was worn by the actor. It consisted of an unbuttoned shirt and a white undershirt paired with joggers. What was the inspiration? “This is an homage to the immigrant workers who kept the Gilded Age going,” he revealed on the red carpet.
“In thinking about the Met Gala theme of ‘Gilded Glamour,’ I wanted to focus on the people without whom nothing Gilded would exist: the laborers, the workers, the unseen,” Ahmed’s stylist, Julie Ragolia, told Vanity Fair. “This look is for everyone who thinks they don’t have a voice. They do.”
But that’s not to say everyone took the theme so literally. Take Sebastian StanFor example, Valentino’s Valentino was a sight to see. The Pam & Tommy star wore hot pink from head to toe, captioning an Instagram post of the look, “Spring time in New York.”
Another star who surprised fans by their, erm, lack of commitment was Fredrik Robertsson, Swedish influencer and self-identified “fashion addict.” The street-style star transformed himself into Jared Letofor the occasion and actually managed a confusion both with fans and media outlets with the actor.
Interestingly, Robertsson wasn’t the only Leto lookalike. Alessandro Michele, creative director of Gucci attended the event with the *real* Leto and the duo matched in floral tuxes from the luxury Italian label with white shirts, red bow ties, sunglasses and clutches. Their hair was styled the same: swept down, parted off-center and pinned back with matching clips.
