2017 Met Gala Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

As one of the biggest nights in fashion, the 2017 Met Gala boasted a number of menswear looks that rose to the occasion on Monday (May 1) in New York City.

Lewis Hamilton
: Scoring high style marks, Lewis’s green velvet Dolce & Gabbana Alta Sartoria tuxedo was graced by Buccellati Collection diamonds and metallic-laced slippers. It was effortlessly luxe with an impossibly cool edge.

Alexander Skarsgard
: I was head over heels for this impeccable, white-hot Ermenegildo Zegna Couture tuxedo.

Rami Malek: We saw many ladies in red, and I loved how Rami brought the hue of the evening in this Dior Homme suit, accented by a floral pin and shiny patent dress shoes. Handsomely on theme—in all the best ways.

Luke Evans: There’s no denying this Louis Vuitton tuxedo was at the epitome of classic, crisp elegance—even if it had nothing to do with the theme.

A$AP Rocky: I simply didn’t get the rationale for this Calvin Klein ensemble that featured a work shirt over a turtleneck and slouchy black jeans, as it was sloppy at best.

Cam Newton: Obviously going for the shrunken look, this deep burgundy Versace tuxedo just seemed overtly too small making for a rather comical showing with the gigantic top hat.

Nick Jonas: Cutting a fine profile, Nick was on point in this Ralph Lauren ensemble. The hero of the look was the tuxedo jacket with its graphic, geometric motif.

Aziz Ansari: Aziz put forth a solid effort in this double-breasted Ermenegildo Zegna Couture suit.

Diplo: Here, the cropped proportions of this Thom Brown three-piece suit struck the right avant-garde balance to play into the theme.

Wiz Khalifa: Like Diplo’s look, this custom Thom Brown ensemble featured shrunken proportions but with a far more androgynous bent. The tailored jacket and vest could nearly pass for women’s wear.

Riz Ahmed: This Dior Homme all-black look left little to write home about.

Ansel Elgort: There is something just so elegantly polished about a white dinner jacket worn right, and this Tom Ford tuxedo delivered.

Jaden Smith: This was actually a decent Louis Vuitton ensemble. Unfortunately, no one was looking at it with Jaden’s choice accessories. Carrying a mess of dreadlocks while wearing a grill is certainly one way to be provocative.

The Weeknd: Conservatively elegant, The Weeknd was polished in a traditional Valentino black tuxedo.

Michael B. Jordan: Plaid came out to play a few times in the women’s looks of the night, and Michael brought his own rendition in this Ralph Lauren suit styled with a white dress shirt and bow tie, all of which he wore impeccably.

Dane DeHaan: I appreciate the turn towards a shade other than black, but this deep emerald Prada tux still translated as a bit lacklustre. I blame the fit.

Tom Brady
: Standing alongside the gorgeous Gisele Bundchen, Tom basked in her radiance and echoed the metallic M.O. with a charcoal-silver Tom Ford jacket styled with a traditional black bow tie and dress pants.

Alexander Rodriguez: Attending with Jennifer Lopez, Alexander raised his fashion game in a midnight-navy Valentino suit with contrasting black lapels.

Frank Ocean: Despite the fact that this was a custom Balmain ensemble, I was struck with the feeling that something was missing.

Ryan Reynolds: Also wearing Versace like his wife, Blake Lively, Ryan coordinated his blue bow tie to the feathers in her skirt, winning this couple the matchy-matchy award of the night.

Corey Hawkins: Corey was sharp in a well-tailored Todd Snyder tux in a rich shade of midnight blue.

      And I was actually thinking Luka Sabbat in a red D&G tux with black trim (he caught my eye as I was looking through pics of the event). As far as the MET Gala goes, that was the style win imo.

    Ansel Elgort looks handsome in his polished classic look and with the beautifully combed back hair, def. one of my fave, and a shout-out to Rami, of course, for rocking a bold red suit, the floral pin is charming, just wish the shoes weren’t that big (esp. against the bright slim pants).

    I love the the first row. I also dig Jaden and Future look

  6. Alina May 3, 2017 at 04:23 #

    All of these looks fit their personal styles. Love MBJ, Rami, Nick Jonas, Lewis, Frank, ASAP and even Dane because that totally is his style.

    I love Jaden’s LV ensemble. Rami looks awesome as well.

      Rami and Jaden were my favorites as well. Oh, and Whiz

  11. Schoolbea May 2, 2017 at 23:58 #

    Loving Rami Malek and Michael B. Jordan here!

    Also, Nick Jonas may be becoming my male fashion crush at the moment. Those jackets he finds are fantabulous.

    Loving Michael B. Jordan’s plaid suit. He pulls it off nicely.

  13. xbuzzerx May 2, 2017 at 23:33 #

    Seen it all! NEXT

    She’s wearing gold chains and feather couture and he put on a blue bow tie and they’re matching?

    No matter what colour of patter of suit/tux the men wearing they just cannot compete with womenswear.

    I think it’s in the culture than the men cannot outshine the/ir women so sartorial disappointment is inevitable.
