2018 Met Gala Menswear Roundup

The men always have a bit more of a challenge when it comes to thematic dress, but here’s how they did at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

Virgil Abloh: Right out of the gate, I loved seeing Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director of Men’s Collections wearing this preview of the upcoming Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2019 men’s collection. Bonus points that the creamy-white design played to the theme—with an urban twist in the sneakers.

Andrew Garfield: The actor introduced the thematic, crimson-red hue via this lush velveteen Tom Ford tuxedo.

Jared Leto: If there would be anyone to fully dress to theme, it would be Jared. In head-to-toe Gucci, he flaunted this custom design that offered up his interpretation of a saintly crown paired with priestly embroidered panels. The flamboyant suit itself we could have likely seen him in any day of the week.

Anya Taylor Joy In Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda – 2018 Met Gala

Anya Taylor Joy looked rather divine and doll-like at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

While lovely on its own merits, this Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda tapestry, bold-shoulder dress may have not made us look twice, were it not for the luscious jeweled necklace piece that adorned it.

Plus, her sweet rose-bedecked headdress had to be one of the top hair accessories of the night.

Emilia Clarke In Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda – 2018 Met Gala

Emilia Clarke was one of the beauties offering a painterly homage to the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

Her intricately embroidered Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda medieval-influenced gown featured portraits of cherubs to check the box on the ‘Heavenly Bodies’ component.

I understand why she added the rosiness of the pink blush to her cheeks, but I think she could have done without it and just let the crimson lip and her embellished crown accessorise the look.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda – 2018 Met Gala

Sarah Jessica Parker is one I always look forward to seeing at the Met Gala, as she so unabashedly dresses to theme. And, she didn’t disappoint for her 2018 showing on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

As per, there was an air of outright thematic extravagance in her sweeping Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda gold filigree, heart-embellished gown.

But, despite the intricate embroidery, the ruffled sleeves, and the long cape-like train, I would say it was the fascinator balancing atop her head that really took the cake and stole the show.

The intricate nativity-scene headdress was a work of art in and of itself, adding to the unapologetically costume-fueled drama of her entrance.

Jennifer Lawrence In Dolce & Gabbana – 3rd Annual Awards in the Arts in Louisville

Louisville native Jennifer Lawrence was back in her hometown for the 3rd Annual Awards in the Arts on Friday (April 27).

The ‘Red Sparrow’ star was always going to be the main attraction, but in this Dolce & Gabbana form-fitting showstopper of a dress, she made quite a seductive statement.

The floral jacquard is quite dainty, but the satin, punctuated with the layered bra was always going to see Jennifer continue to embraces her more sultry side to her style.

Gold jewels, including a reverse choker and a Jimmy Choo ‘Celeste’ orange clutch completed her look, which was only let down by the black sandals.
