Met Gala 2022: Jared Leto dons a floral suit as he’s with Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele


Jared Leto kept his doppelgänger theme going on Monday when he walked the red carpet at the Met Gala with what looked like an identical twin.

The 50-year-old Oscar winner was actually joined by Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele, who had his hair and outfit perfectly styled to match.

The Morbius star’s look was more modest than previous years, and he and Michele both wore matching cream-colored Gucci tuxedos.

Jared was totally covered up in the linen tux, which featured a double-breasted jacket with wide black peaked lapels and black buttons.

He paired it with a simple white shirt and spiced up the muted colors with a red silk bow tie. 

The Blade Runner 2049 actor also appeared to have on a black cummerbund, and he wore loose-fitting pants in the same design as his jacket.

The cream-colored items were decorated with delicate floral embroidery.

He and Alessandro completed their edgy ensembles by donning matching black sunglasses and wearing jeweled barrette’s to hold their hair back.

Jared’s most recent Met Gala appearance was in 2019, when he also wore a doppelgänger-themed outfit. 

That year, he arrive din a red jeweled gown, but the most striking part of his look was a replica of his own head, which he carried along with him. 

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, also known as the Met Gala, is considered by many as the ‘Super Bowl of celebrity red carpets.’

Fashion’s biggest night is traditionally held the first Monday in May to raise money for the Costume Institute in New York City, with last year’s event moved to September due to the pandemic. 

This year’s dress code is ‘gilded glamour’ to match the theme of ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion,’ a continuation of last year’s ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.’

Tickets for the glitzy event can reportedly cost up to $35,000 apiece, while prices for a table range from $200,000 to $300,000, with last year’s bash raking in a  whopping $16.4 million for the Met’s Costume Institute.

Regina King, power couple Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, and Lin-Manuel Miranda are hosting this time, taking over from Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka. 

This will be Miranda’s first time as a Met Gala co-chair (and guest) but he was originally intended to co-host the 2020 edition before the pandemic forced its cancellation. 

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour is once again supervising the benefit as chairwoman, a position she’s held since 1995. Her fellow honorary co-chairs are designer Tom Ford and Instagram head Adam Mosseri. 

As usual, the sartorial theme comes from the exhibit the gala launches: ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion,’ which is the second of star curator Andrew Bolton’s two-part show exploring the roots of American style.

This exhibit will showcase some lesser-known designers, and also some top film directors, including Sofia Coppola, Martin Scorsese, host King, and last year’s Oscar winner Chloé Zhao.
