Our pick of the best dressed gents from this year’s Met Gala Ball.
Let’s start by saying the annual Costume Institute Gala at Metropolitan Museum of Art – the Met Gala Ball, for short – has to be one of the most over-hyped events on the fashion calendar.
Dubbed the “Oscars of Fashion” and even the “Superbowl of Fashion” (?!) by one overexcited commentator, this year”s event launches the ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology’ exhibition at the Museum.
A who’s who of the acting and creative world turn up in their finery to be photographed on the famous steps and sent around the world for us all to gawk at.
Men are generally expected to tux up for the evening. But as is the modern way, deconstruction of that idea has well and truly been embraced. Someone, for example, clearly forgot to show the invitation with the dress code to Kanye West, who turned up looking like he was taking wife Kim Kardashian to the local Bowl-a-rama for a beer and a few games. Other likes English actor Tom Hiddleston did the right thing… even if if it’s the kinda boring thing.
You be the judge.
