Jared Leto Just Became A Victim Of Mistaken Identity On Met Gala Red Carpet

·2-min read

Jared Leto is known for turning heads on the Met Gala red carpet, but changing into an entirely new human being isn't one of them yet - as far as we know.

On Monday night several Twitter fans mistook entrepreneur and self-proclaimed fashion addict Fredrik Robertsson for Jared Leto after the Swede arrived on the red carpet in what can only be described as a sea creature-inspired look.

Seemingly eschewing the 'Gilded Glamour, White Tie' theme, Robertsson - who is the editor in chief of Boy magazine - appeared in a silver Iris Van Herpen jumpsuit, complete with silver structured wings/fins and a white blonde hair do.

Unsurprisingly the look resulted in some rather bemused and bewildered reactions from Met Gala fans on Twitter, including the majority of whom mistaking him for the Oscar-winning actor Leto.

Hours before the Gala, Robertsson took to Instagram to give his 27,000 followers a sneak peek of his look, captioning a getting ready photo: 'We are getting ready for the Met Gala 2022 and I am so lucky to have my Swedish dream team in New York with me - transforming me into…well - you will see [sic].'

Of course, Robertsson's OTT look is exactly something we'd expect from Leto at the Gala, so it's understandable why many of his fans might have confused the pair.

In 2019 Leto, dressed in a red Gucci ensemble, celebrated the Gala's 'Camp: Notes on Fashion' theme at Metropolitan Museum of Art by carrying his own head in his arms (inspired by Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele's Milan Fashion Week AW19 show), before tossing it over to a surprised Shawn Mendes on the red carpet.

Leto was later seen arriving on the red carpet alongside Michele in twinning - quite literally - in matching Gucci ensembles with coordinated accessories and doppelgänger hair.
