Welcome to the world’s most elaborate celebrity ball with an equally elaborate theme. MET Gala 2018 has arrived and the theme this year was ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion & The Catholic Imagination’.
What the hell indeed. Nonetheless the annual event makes easy work of bringing together the hottest celebrities and the creative industry elite for what is often deemed the fashion world’s biggest night out. The men of MET Gala 2018 certainly didn’t hold back, donning their finest threads which were thought-provoking, attention-grabbing and at times conservative (looking your way Gary Oldman and Colin Firth).
Leaders of pack were none other than Donald Glover and Michael B. Jordan, two of the hottest men in the entertainment world at the moment thanks to the former releasing a new song yesterday and the latter filming Creed 2. They also dressed perfectly for the event with Jordan in a pinstripe suit with military detailing and Glover in a purple tuxedo with gold detailing in the back.
Other notable men in attendance included Chadwick Boseman, Virgil Abloh, Ansel Elgort, Andrew Garfield, Shaun White, Colin Firth and Jared Leto just to name a few.
Hit up the gallery to see all of the best dressed men from MET Gala 2018 or revisit some of the most ludicrous looks from MET Gala 2017.
Glover goes purple in a Gucci tuxedo with white bow tie and matching white loafers. The back also features large gold embroidery detailing
Michael B. Jordan
Jordan went down the military route with a hint of luxury streetwear thanks to Off-White
Lewis Hamilton made sure to bleach his elaborate three-piece suit which was further tarted up with diamonds and stark white military boots – also with diamonds of course
Snowboard champion Shaun White went green with a hint of sprezaturra styling in this very cool look
Andrew Garfield channeled evening wear with a striking red velvet jacket paired with a classic tuxedo look
Gary Oldman played it conservative at this year’s event and he did it well
The king of Wakanda rocked Versace at this year’s event and it was enough to satisfy the ‘Catholic’ potion of the dress code. He also gave Jared Leto a run for his money in the most outlandish look
Diplo walked out in white with proper sprezaturra styling and religious accessories
Off-White creator and newly crowned Louis Vuitton head Virgil Abloh showed off the perfect way to balance formal and streetwear wardrobes. Note the ‘For Red Carpet Only’ tag on the sole of his Jordans.
Firth kept things cool and simple with a classic tuxedo at this year’s MET Gala
Another conservative dresser of the night was Mr. Skarsgård. Some may say it’s boring. Others just say it’s pure class
Rising artist Shawn Mendes took to the event in a purple number sans bowtie. Simple, clean and cool without going overboard
Baby Driver scrubs up alright in a purple velvet tuxedo number
Speaking of overboard, Jaden Smith has done it again, this time going so far up his own ass that he decided to create a fake gold record, frame it, and use it as an accessory. He also rocked LV and chunky dad sneakers, but we couldn’t tell behind his tacky Blue Steel look
The king of fashion showed up to the MET Gala as…you guessed it. A goddamn king. Massive lapels, floral clerical garments, an old English pink shirt and gold crown topped off this wild look which only Leto can pull off
