Conan Gray was no doubt one of the best-dressed celebrities at the gala. The singer went with an off-shoulder sort of black tweed jacket by Balmain over a clean white shirt with a plain black tie. The specialty of the jacket was the several white pearls that adorned the collars and sleeves. The look was completed with black gloves stitched inside the jacket and a hand fan with matching black and white details on it. Conan transported the audience somewhat to the Regency period with his gorgeous look.
The heartthrob actor Robert Pattinson was among the best-dressed male celebrities at the Met Ball. He wore a classic black men’s tuxedo from the house of Dior. To suit the theme of the event and finish his look, he paired the tuxedo with a dark blue pleated skirt and a white shirt underneath. A gold brooch and sparkly detailed shoes adorned the entire look making the actor appear seamlessly charming and classic.
Leon Lai Yi
The talented young Chinese actor Leon Lai Yi looked visually appealing in his super blingy look in an eye-catching knee-length coat in the darkest shade of black.

To finish the look, a thick layered silver chain hung around his neck.
Actor Ben Platt paid homage to Karl and aptly dressed up according to Gala’s theme in a classic white Chanel suit look.

Everything put together looked so chic, clean, and largely reminiscent of the late designer Karl’s classic work.

Pope wore loose black bootcut pants paired with a 30-foot-long white cape that had a hand-embroidered face of the late Karl Lagerfeld on the train.

The famous singer Bad Bunny looked marvelous in his simple yet, intricate completely white look. He wore a custom-made suit with a light beige tie and big white shoes. The suit itself was not what pulled the attention of the audience but rather, a white cape with a long train draped around both his arms.

The talented filmmaker Taika Waititi honored the Met Gala red carpet with his incredible outfit. He attended the event with his wife Rita Ora. Taika wore almost a floor-length coat-like piece on top which was made of a beautiful blue or greyish shade satin with black collars.
