As one of three co-chairs for the Met Gala this year, Harry Styles was tasked with bringing his fashion A-game on the red carpet—and tonight the singer certainly did not disappoint. Dressing for the camp theme, he wore a design by Gucci’s Alessandro Michele, a designer who has dressed Styles in his fabulously flamboyant suits many times before. Styles walked the pink carpet with the designer, and took the evening as an opportunity to jam-pack three risky menswear trends into one ensemble. (Gucci, after all, loves to push boundaries.)
Styles wore a sheer top—which showed off his tattoos underneath (hot)!—that had a big bow tied at the chest. It was all about freeing the nipple. The frilly, lacy men’s top has also been having a huge moment as of late, and Styles proved the trend isn’t going anywhere yet. He paired the piece with classic black trousers, and when it came to footwear, he experimented yet again, slipping on a chunky pair of men’s heels—a style he’s dared to wear before. Finishing touches like a pearl earring—call him “the boy with the pearl earring”—and a fistful of silver rings proved he wasn’t afraid of approaching the night’s maximalist aesthetic with total style.
Styles’s on-theme look tonight wasn’t entirely unexpected. Some of his past red-carpet looks have been heavy on the kitsch factor; he has a real penchant for groovy floral suits, and has even done a spot-on imitation of a sparkle-wearing Elton John. Being a Gucci campaign star, he’s also repeatedly worn Michele’s whimsical menswear designs, leaning heavy on his pussybow blouses and heeled shoes. Tonight, however, cemented Styles' reign as the king of camp, after all.
