The Men Of The Met Gala: They Were Also There!

September 14, 2021 / Posted by:

The Met Gala is usually Ladies Night plus Jared Leto as most of the men just throw on a tux and call it a day. But this year saw a lot more fellows willing to risk it all in the name of FASHION! Ok, maybe not risking it all, but at the very least, risking falling down the stairs ass-over-tea kettle like Jason Derulo by wearing a chunky shoe. Of course, you’re gonna have your showboats like Lil Nas X here who’s outfit included two separate reveals and enough tooch-booching to make even Tyra Banks scream “THIS IS TOO MUCH!

Here is Lil Nas X’s three-for-the-price-one look:

But most of the fellows kept things slightly less exuberant. For example, here’s Elliot Page looking like a generic brand juice box that’s wearing Frankenstein’s track shoes. I’m sorry, Frankenstein’s monster’s Balenciaga track shoes. The green flower in his lapel was handed to him by Frank Ocean’s baby right before he threw it into the steam to drown. Good thing Elliot was wearing those track shoes and was able to make a quick escape!

Ben Platt also opted for a chunky Steve Madden shoe and paired it with denim by Christian Cowan. It seems he’s heard all our complaints about Dear Evan Hansen and decided to finally act his age. And considering he looks like he’s ready for a made-for-TV remake of Saturday Night Fever starring Donny Osmond, that age is approximately 65.

Pete Davidson was there and joked that the inspiration for his black and white Thom Browne dress was “slutty nun,” which I don’t see at all. Neither can he because he’s obviously gone blind! I mean I’m assuming that’s why the shades.

I somehow missed the new twink drop that brought us Australian singer-songwriter, actor, and YouTuber Troye Sivan, but he made the cut and brought some understated elegance in an LBD (little back dress) and a pair of BYN (break your necks) boots. Diamonds by Cartier. Walk by Lordy Don’t Let Me Trip Again This Is Take 25.

While Troye really did risk breaking his neck, it was Timothée Thée Chalamet who wound up taking a devastating fall. And he was wearing Converse! Vogue reports that Timothée actually walked 10 blocks to get there wearing an all-white Haider Ackermann sweatsuit. New York, you disappoint me! How was he not mugged?

I kid, of course, that was Jason for the 47th year in a row.
