On the first Monday of every May, New York’s Metropolitan Museum Of Art (MoMA) hosts its annual fundraising gala, also known as The Met Ball. Celebrities and fashion influencers alike come together wearing some of their best outfits because it’s one of the most-watched fashion events of the year.

This year, celebrates the opening of the Costume Institute’s exhibition, “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.” Usually the women get all of the shine at these type of events but the fellas definitely came correct this year.

Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino

Donald Glover has been killing it lately with everything from his latest album, his hit television show, and his recent victory at The Golden Globes. Ironically, he wasn’t always known for his keen sense of style but he’s become a true testament to the old adage, “If you look good, you feel good, and if you feel good, you do good!”

Nick Jonas

I will always be a fan of bold blazers, and Nick Jonas definitely wore this one perfectly!

Michael B. Jordan

I’ve always wanted a bold suit like this but I just couldn’t imagine wearing it anywhere. In fact, I actually remember when Ralph Lauren came out with this one last year. However, Michael B. Jordan definitely inspired me with this look and if I ever attend the Met Ball, I know what I’ll be wearing!

John Legend

John Legend has always had a great sense of style. He hardly ever wears anything too flashy but he definitely understands the importance of fit. Plus, he gets some bonus points for coordinating with his wife without making it look corny!

The Weeknd

Here is another classic look that will never get old. It really shows how crucial it is to have the proper fit. Also, that lapel pin was the perfect finishing touch. I just wish he didn’t get so crazy with all of that makeup!


As always, thanks for reading and be sure to check out the new inventory in The Dapper Advisor Boutique!
