The Best Dressed Men at The Met Gala 2021

From cowboy hats to robot dolls, these are the guys who absolutely understood the assignment.

For lovers of fashion, the Met Gala is our Super Bowl, the highlight of our year. It’s a celebration of fashion and a revelry of couture, bringing together the most iconic figures in industries of design, film, music and the arts under one roof at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, where the Met’s new exhibit is first unveiled to the A-listers of the A-listers.

This year, the Costume Institute presents their exhibit titled “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” coinciding with the Met Gala’s “American Independence” dress code. From bold looks to gold looks, from cut-offs to Converse, these are the best dressed men of last night’s Met Gala.
