The Met Gala 2017 is the one event of the year in the fashion diary where all of the most sought-after celebs hit the red carpet to show off their highly anticipated looks of the evening, each coercing to set theme, year in and year out. If you’re unaware of the purpose of the Met Gala, it’s an annual fundraising gala for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York. Each year US Vogue editor Anna Wintour plans a theme and draws up an impressive rally of a-listers to attend to make a true fashion statement.
With this years theme based around Rei Kawakubo / Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-between, the stars were out to impress and this year, it wasn’t just the women taking the spotlight. Here’s Belle’s round up of five of the best of the men’s attire as a little inspiration for the fashion-forward groom to add something current and alternative into his wedding suit…
If sticking to tradition is more your thing and you’re not one for trying new trends, especially on such a big occasion, why not take a tip from The Weeknd and just add something little such as a brooch to spruce up your attire? This can be symbolic of an event or a person in your life that you want to involve in your big day, or simply just an accessory you’re rather fond of. Either way, it ensures that your suit will be different to any other, in your own special way.
Actor Riz Ahmed proves that sometimes going for a minimalistic approach on an evening suit can make the best statement. Sticking to one colour palette ensures that not only will everything match but you will stand out from the crowd in bold colour block.
Joe Jonas showed us how to incorporate a little personality into a sophisticated, tailored suit with a subtle striped detail. The deep wine colour doesn’t distract from the purpose of the suit and doesn’t overly highlight the stripe detail, allowing it to stay sophisticated, minimal but bang on trend.
If you’re one for pushing the boundaries and always looking for a way to stand out from the crowd, try picking a suit jacket that screams personality, creativity and something different. A quirky key piece will ensure all eyes are on you.
