Chadwick Boseman In Versace – 2018 Met Gala

Normally, we save the menfolk for their own roundup, but as per usual, Chadwick Boseman was back at it with another superlative look at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City; one that was worthy of its own dedicated post.

No better choice than Versace on an evening such as this, as Donatella Versace was a co-host and the label’s cross motif was made for the religiously focused theme.

I always love a cape, so I’ve been going crazy over the caped looks tonight. But, it’s a rare occasion that we see one worn in menswear—and worn so magnificently.

Leave it to Chadwick.

Bronzed Christian Louboutin Homme shoes and rows of Bulgari rings completed his resplendent, kingly look.

    It’s astonishing how he repeatedly outdoes himself. Over and over again he delivers scrumptious, outstanding outings.
    Somewhere in a dark corner downtown Kane West must be clutching his pearls of envy.

    BDOTY for sure!! He singularly makes me notice men’s fashion on this site.

    The men of the night failed to impress me until………….. this. Bow down King.

    A perfect outfit for a king. BREATHLESS.

    A petition to replace all men to ever walk any red carpet ever with Chadwick Boseman.

    I haven’t been as thrilled as everyone on here about Boseman’s Black Panther premiere tour looks but this one was a huge win! finally something that’s not boring black tuxedo!

    YES. This is all I’ve ever hoped for.

    LOVE. One of the best-dressed of the night.

    This man just keeps wrestling with himself for that BDOTY crown. Absolutely perfect and in a league of his own.

    • justme May 8, 2018 at 08:30 #


      He has had my BDOTY vote since February but he never stops giving look after look…. just… bravo, Chadwick!

    Okay I don’t like the look for itself but for the event and compared to every other men there, he was truly the best dressed. Probably only Jared came close in accordance to the theme. I wish the cape was longer trailing on the floor.

  15. charlotte May 8, 2018 at 07:36 #

    Thank god for Chadwick boseman

  16. Nat39 May 8, 2018 at 07:31 #

    Wow(!) high points, although can’t help but feel that it’s a bit too literal and the shirt needed to be different/more stylized for the look.

  17. AnnieOh May 8, 2018 at 05:33 #

    he is in a league of his own. i love it!

    Chadwick and Priyanka nailed it tonight. Just the right blend of costume and fashion! Absolutely in love with both looks.

  20. Pheephee May 8, 2018 at 05:14 #

    Well. He totally nailed this. Love the perfect on theme look! It seems so difficult for men to go on theme ever….so this is amazing.

  21. Ariya May 8, 2018 at 05:03 #

    BDOTY nominee for sure.

  22. Caitlin May 8, 2018 at 05:01 #

    One of the best dressed men in Met Gala history!

    So IN LOVE! Yes, So in LOVE!!! Now this is what we’re talking about. It’s a COSTUME BALL.

    Loved that he is on theme and owned this look.

  24. Vizual Ninja May 8, 2018 at 04:52 #

    leave it to Chad to represent and do it well!

  25. JHH May 8, 2018 at 04:46 #

    It is so rare that men try to follow the trend. I love Chadwick for going all in on the theme. The only thing that I do not like is the cheap looking white shirt but overall this is a major win for Chadwick and I, for one, am happy that you did not wait for the men’s wear roundup to cover this look.

  26. AnnaBanana May 8, 2018 at 04:46 #

    Amazing. That is all.

  27. EmmaWoodhouse May 8, 2018 at 04:45 #

    DAMN. This is the BDMOTY right here. Amazing. It’s like a Holy Roman Emperor look and I am HERE FOR IT.
