2017 Met Gala Best Dressed Men

2017 Met Gala Best Dressed Men

5 / 2 / 17 | News and Events

The Metropolitan Museum of Art holds the Met Gala the first Monday of May every year to fund it’s only self-funded department, the Costume Institute (or the fashion department). About 600 people attend and tickets are an easy $30K a pop. This year’s theme was Rei Kawakubo/Comme de Garcones: Art of the In-Betweens. If you’re one of the 99.9% of people that don’t know that reference, check out this NY Times article which explains the Met Gala 2017 theme. What do we love about the Met Gala?  It’s a black-tie event but people go in an atypical direction with their looks. Men embrace their creative ideas, or the ideas of their stylists, and try unusual pieces and combinations. This year Rami Malek got props for his pure red ensemble, we loved Joe Jonas in burgundy, all the white dinner jackets were a little safe for the event but looked super sharp, and Tom Brady in Tom Ford rounded out our favorites. Check out all the details and how to create your own look below.

Blue Tuxedos and Suits:

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, need we say more? If one thing is certain...it's that Ryan Reynolds knows how to rock a navy blue suit and light blue bow tie.

We can't figure out where the red carpet starts and where Rami Malek ends! Going for a bold red tuxedo by Dior Homme, it was definitely a look that paid off for him.

Matt Smith kept his look classic in a black Burberry tuxedo, but added a unique touch with his large, slouchy bow tie. Sometimes all you need is a cool accessory to stand out.
