Met Gala 2016: Wiz Khalifa and Idris Elba Win the Red Carpet
Though it's the ladies who traditionally get the most red carpet attention, the men brought their A-game (and their Givenchy game, and their Dior game) to Monday night's 2016 Met Gala. And then there was Kanye West, who showed up alongside wife Kim Kardashian in something like a couture Canadian tuxedo: a Balmain denim jacket (according to Instagram, West's own jacket, embellished by Olivier Rousteing for the event) and jeans. It has passed relatively un-dissected and un-analyzed that West wore head-to-toe denim to the Met Gala — his attention-grabbing blue contact lenses saw to that. Rami Malek, Tom Ford, and Idris Elba (in Tom Ford) went classic, while Nick Jonas went full-on high street in Topman, joining the cadre of celebrities like Ciara and Kate Upton opting for custom H&M and Topshop in lieu of couture creations. Maybe embracing mass production is the most honest interpretation of the "Fashion in an Age of Technology" theme, after all.
