Rihanna, step aside: Introducing the men who rocked the 2018 Met Gala red carpet

Donald Glover

In keeping with the theme, Donald Glover donned a Gucci tux with a seriously embellished symbol on the reverse. Dubbed the ‘Eye of Providence’, the pyramid symbolises the all-seeing eye of God.
Found on the back of a dollar note, the image could also hint at the Vatican’s accumulation of wealth over the centuries. Having just dropped his new album, ‘This Is America’, he is certainly not afraid to make a statement. He finished the look with a pair of white Gucci loafers, of course. [Photo: Getty]

Virgil Abloh

Designer Virgil Abloh is hot conversation in the fashion industry RN and his Met Gala look just gave us yet another reason to talk about him. Dressed in a cream-hued Louis Vuitton suit and Nike x Off-White trainers, he proves nobody can wear his labels quite so well. [Photo: Getty]

Jared Leto

Jared Leto is a walking advertisement for Gucci so it came as no surprise to see him rock a sky blue suit and pussy bow blouse by the Italian label. In keeping with the religious theme, he accessorised the look with a floral brocade shawl reminiscent of those that priests often don. Of course, his Jesus-inspired locks and accompanying crown further accentuated the look. [Photo: Getty]

Cole Sprouse

Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart made their red carpet debut on the Met Gala stairs last night. While the actress opted for a custom-made H&M dress, the ‘Riverdale’ star donned a seriously dapper tux by Thom Browne. [Photo: Getty]

Daniel Kaluuya

Daniel Kaluuya looked smart in a powder blue tux by Prada. The ‘Get Out’ actor accessorised the look with MontBlanc cufflinks and a David Yurman ring. [Photo: Getty]

Chadwick Boseman

Chadwick Boseman nailed the theme in a bespoke cape and suit by Versace. He accessorised the brocade-effect trousers with gold Christian Louboutin shoes and Bvlgari rings. [Photo: Getty]

Pharell Williams

Leave it to Pharell to rock the theme. The singer opted for a tuxedo by Chanel and accessorised the crisp white shirt with layered cross-bearing necklaces. [Photo: Getty]


We couldn’t pull together a guide to the best dressed men of the evening without including Migos. Decked in Versace, the rap trio donned their signature sunnies and somehow made their go-to aesthetic work with the theme. [Photo: Getty]

Nick Jonas

Darren Criss

For the Met Gala, Darren Criss donned a seriously embellished jacket with co-ordinating burgundy trousers. The ‘Glee’ star accessorised his D&G aesthetic with a pair of velvet loafers. [Photo: Getty]

Last night, the A-list set graced New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s now-famous steps with feathered wings, haloes and embellished crosses in tow.

In keeping with the theme of ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’, the likes of Rihanna, Katy Perry and Blake Lively stole the sartorial spotlight decked in sequins and religious iconography. But it’s high time we turned our attention to the men.

In red carpet reportage, male attendees are often left on the sidelines. Trust us, it can prove tricky trying to track down which label they’re wearing.

But last night, they brought their sartorial A-game and addressed the theme with impressive dedication.

From Donald Glover’s symbolic Gucci co-ord to Jared Leto’s Jesus-inspired aesthetic, these are the men who nailed the 2018 Met Gala.
