Met Gala 2022: Men On The Red Carpet

On Monday May 2, 2022, some of the most fashionable stars came together for the annual fundraising gala for the Costume Institute’s upcoming exhibition, In America: An Anthology of Fashion at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

The evening was co-chaired by Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Regina King and Lin-Manuel Miranda, with Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour, Council of Fashion Designers of America chairman Tom Ford and head of Instagram Adam Mosseri continuing their roles as the Met Gala’s honorary co-chairs.

This year’s Met Gala theme was “Guilded Glamour” and it carried a strict white tie dress code. Vogue noted that attendees were asked “to embody the grandeur — and perhaps the dichotomy — of Gilded Age New York.”

New York’s Gilded Age, a period that stretched from 1870 to 1890, was a period of rapid growth – both in terms of financial wealth and architecture. Fashion at that time was also very busy – think fabric, frills, lace and bows!

Thankfully, most stars understood the assignment and arrived in their “Gilded Glamour” best. Here are six of our fave gents who walked the red carpet at the 2022 Met Gala red carpet.

Ryan Reynolds
Ryan Reynolds, who served as co-chair of the event alongside wife Blake Lively, opted for a velvet brown tuxedo by Ralph Lauren finished with a white bow tie and an Omega timepiece.

Shawn Mendes
Shawn Mendes looked sharp in a navy and maroon coat with crest buttons by Tommy Hilfiger, which he wore over a matching tuxedo.

Riz Ahmed
Riz Ahmed described his Louis Vuitton look as “a tribute to the immigrant experience that kept the Gilded Age working.” He tied his ensemble together with jewelry by Cartier.

Austin Butler
Austin Butler, the star of the upcoming Elvis biopic, wore all-black Prada to walk the red carpet at the 2022 Met Gala.

Evan Mock
Gossip Girl star Evan Mock definitely stood out from the crowd wearing a lemon-hued corset top over a frilly button-down shirt.

Leslie Odom Jr.
Leslie Odom Jr. wore a black made-to-measure Fendi suit with short sleeves and completed the look with a fur brooch, a statement-making hat, and a pair of Mary Jane shoes.
