In most cases, ladies are the ones who get the most of the attention on the red carpet. That’s understandable because ladies have more room to experiment with their outfits. After seeing all those outstanding gowns we tend to forget about the tuxedos. So, to stand out as a man on the red carpet is not an easy task. This year’s Met Gala theme was all about the avant-garde which made the task even harder. So, how can you wear a tuxedo and still look avant-garde? Well, here are the people who showed us how:
1. Rami Malek
Malek’s all-red Dior Homme suit was a fashion moment to remember. All the guys who are less than 6ft could learn a valuable lesson from Malek. His suit was perfectly tailored and the fit made Malek look taller than he is. Additionally, his shoes were on the edgier side and matched this year’s theme.
2. Wiz Khalifa
Wiz Khalifa smoked a blunt on the red carpet and we are still talking about his outfit. Nobody could steal the show from the black slacks paired with a white shirt, vest and a blazer. His white boots were not an expected choice but sure helped him secure his place among the best-dressed men at the Met Gala. His outfit is a creation of Thom Browne.
3. Hasan Minhaj
Hasan didn’t take any risks but made a strong statement. Once again he proved that the classic black tuxedo with a white smoking shirt is a perfect choice for any red carpet event. Every inch of his Turnbull Asser shawl collar suit fitted him to perfection.
4. The Weekend
The Starboy decided on a settled simple outfit. Everything about his classic tuxedo was on point.
5. Trevor Noah
Trevor decided on an Ermenegildo Zegna made-to-measure suit. This is another great example how a suit should look and fit.
6. Eddie Redmayne
The Oscar winner showed up in a Prada custom tailored blue tuxedo. Eddie paired the double breasted, peak lapel tuxedo with a white smoking shirt and he secured his place among the best-dressed men at the Met Gala 2017.
7. A$AP Rocky
The 28 years old rapper and producer seemed to have a lot of fun at the Met Gala 2017. He apparently grabbed Kendall Jenner’s butt. On the top of that, he was considered among the best-dressed men. His entire outfit was from Raf Simon’s first collection for Calvin Klein.
Migos is the first rap group ever who was honored to perform at the Met Gala. They debuted in all-black classic Versace tuxedos but also brought some of their swag with the designer shades and with the massive pieces of jewelry. I have to admit I have never expected that those chains would look so good on a tuxedo.
9. Aziz Ansari
The classic double breasted tuxedo by Ermenegildo Zegna Couture was the right choice for Aziz Ansari.
10. Joe Jonas
Joe is another star who reached for H&M for his red carpet look. Surprisingly, H&M got the chance to design the outfits for few other celebrities. Joe’s burgundy/black custom tailored suit paired with a black shirt and a black bow tie was a winning combination.
11. Francesco Carrozzini
Anna Wintour’s son-in-law to be Francesco literally shined on the red carpet in his blue double-breasted suit with black shawl collar. He is the son of the former Vogue Italia editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani. No wonder why he is among the best-dressed men on this year’s Met Gala.
12. Pharrell Williams
I would say that Pharrell was the one who risked the most. He showed up dressed casually in jeans, shirt, and a biker jacket and immediately got an approval from the fashion police. Wonder why? Pharrell did a good job adapting to this year’s avant-garde theme and wore Comme des Garcons from head to toes.
The rapper was wearing a custom-made H&M suit. The suit was made from sustainable materials of organic silk and Tencel. Future is simply not a person who would show up in a classic tuxedo, so H&M’s team created an eye-catchy outfit by embroidering a black skull on the back of his tailcoat and added a red Swarovski crystal heart.
14. Riz Ahmed
Riz Ahmed once again proved that you can never go wrong with an all-black suit that is custom tailored to perfection.
15. Tom Brady
Tom Brady supported his better half Giselle in a gray matching suit and black trousers. He paired his Tom Ford suit with a white smoking shirt and a black bow tie.
