The Met Gala 2017 Red Carpet: Just the Guys

This is what you came for.

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

You probably Googled “Met Gala red carpet” just now to find some dresses from what is ostensibly fashion’s biggest night of the year. And those dresses are really great, for the most part! (Though some are not!) You can look at them all right here.

But me? I’m just here for some dudes in suits.

Guys typically get the short end of the stick when it comes to formal dressing, whether that’s for the office or for Anna Wintour’s one-night extravaganza or literally anything in between. And while plenty of tonight’s male attendees went the safe route — Trevor Noah, Riz Ahmed, Ansel Elgort, and Aziz Ansari are prime examples — some went for a little pattern (Donald Glover, Nick Jonas) or a little color (Rami Malek, Joe Jonas). Or, if you were Jaden Smith, you just went for a really unique accessory.

Just scroll through the gallery above, please.
