The Met Gala began in 1948 as a midnight supper that invited guests could attend for fifty dollars a ticket. The event raised funds to support The Costume Institute and celebrated the opening of its major annual exhibition.
Since then, the benefit has grown in size, scope, and profile, and remains the vitally important main source of funding for the department's exhibitions, acquisitions, and capital improvements.
Here are the six best dressed men on the Met Gala 2018 red carpet:
Lewis Hamilton: Tommy Hilfiger
Paul Bettany: Ermenegildo Zegna
Tom Brady: Versace
John Boyega: Michael Kors
Nick Jonas: Dolce & Gabbana
Andrew Garfield: Tom Ford
