The most important event on the red carpet of the Met Gale two years ago was certainly the appearance of Lady Gaga, who wore as many as four different editions, and which she took off one by one in front of cheerful photographers.
Very similar fashion performance was made this year by American musician Lil Nas X who last night exchanged three gold combinations in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute with the signature of designer Donatella Versace.
He appeared on the red carpet in an oversized royal cloak under which he wore gilded armor. With the help of security guards, he removed the metal construction in order to reveal the richly decorated overalls.
But he wasn’t the only man on the red carpet of the Met Gale to push the boundaries of men’s fashion and appear in a bold release. Never before has the red carpet been so rich in distinctive creations.
The famous guys wore extravagant editions spiced with skirts and dresses, daring colors and cuts. Even those who chose black suits complemented them with unexpected details that are rarely seen in public.
And while some applaud fashion freedom and express their own personality through eccentric combinations, others question whether such pieces are suitable for men.
Men and wearing dresses is already a well-known debate that divides people on social media since Harry Styles appeared on the cover of Vogue in December 2020.
