The best-dressed men at the Met Gala stole the show: Harry Styles in sheer ruffles, Billy Porter in all gold and more
From wildly sheer shirts to fringe, glitter, and feathers, this year's Camp theme seems to have brought out the inner fashionistas in these stars.
It's not every day that men show off their couture sense on the red carpet but this Met gala was different. From wildly sheer shirts to fringe, glitter, and feathers, this year's Camp theme seems to have brought out the inner fashionistas in these stars. They looked amazing and gave us some serious outfit goals!
Check out the most fabulous men from the night.
1. Harry Styles
The former One Directioner walked the pink carpet with Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele and of course, wore Gucci. Styles is the face of Camp Gucci, so it does make sense that he would show up in it on the biggest night of the year. Styles chose to wear a black lace top with sheer sleeves and a pair of super high waisted pants and a tiny drop pearl earring. He looked so good and we are lowkey wondering why he never thought of this before.
2. Billy Porter
Billy Porter takes the mantle of being gorgeous very seriously. The 'Pose' star went with an exaggerated gold winged look that is inspired by Diana Ross in 'Mahogany'. The look was styled by Sam Ratelle, and the theatrical design duo The Blondes. The bodysuit is made with sequins and Preciosa crystals and the look took five hours to prepare.
3. Jordan Roth
There aren't enough words to do justice to Jordan Roth's custom couture but we'll try. Part soul lost in the desert, part camp. This extremely fluid dress was designed by Iris van Herpen and Roth carried it off with a nice slicked back hair and raw, pure, utter fabulousness.
4. Ryan Murphy
Does Ryan Murphy ever do any wrong? The legendary creator wore a Christian Siriano outfit to create a stunning look for Monday’s star-studded affair. He wore a bejeweled orange tux and matching bowtie, complete with a spectacular cape that took two months to make. If that wasn't shocking enough, he revealed later that it also weighed a 100lbs!
5. Jared Leto
He may have carried his own head to the pink carpet as an accessory, there's no denying that Leto looked absolutely gorgeous! Dressed in Gucci, the actor wore a silky red high-neck gown complete with shoulder pads and a jewel-encrusted body chain. His accessory was a concept that the brand showcased in the Fall 2018 runway at Milan Fashion Week where models carried their own heads, remember? So campy.
6. 21 Savage
This look isn't exactly one of the most out there looks of the day, but it's important. This was the rapper's first ever appearance on the Met Gala carpet and he wore his history with Harlem couturier Dapper Dan's creation. He also wore Gucci, but that was pretty obvious. "This is [his] opportunity to be a part of the golden age of hip-hop. When you see the gold and black that I encouraged him to use, all that is a holdover from the streets. Everyone on the streets wants to be shiny, they want gold, and the outfit he’s wearing is a reflection of that," the designer said about his inspiration to GQ. The gold and black outfit made 21 Savage look like royalty.
7. Cole Sprouse
Cole Sprouse looked so vintage and 'Mary Poppins' this year. With girlfriend Lili Reinhart on his arm, the actor looked like he had just stepped off the runway in a red embroidered suit paired with slicked-back hair and a peach shirt. Salvatore Ferragamo’s creative director Paul Andrew dressed the former Disney star this year.
8. Benedict Cumberbatch
He's played a variety of roles through the years but this one, that of a rich gentleman who probably owns an island and will slay you with a stick is unheard of. But, of course, we are just guessing from what we see. He stepped on to the most Monday of the year in an all-white suit, paired with a white hat and a cane and a striking green brooch and that's all we needed to see.
