We’ve already extensively analyzed the best-dressed ladies on the Met Ball red carpet, so it’s high time we focus on the dudes. I mean, they took the time to clean up, dress in their designer best, and expertly groom themselves for the occasion, right? If not just to make sure they didn’t make their impossibly chic dates look bad. Kidding, kidding. So BEHOLD: the best-dressed men on the Met Gala red carpet (or the hottest—it can go either way).
David Beckham matched his wife Victoria in a white-hot shawl-collar tux from Ralph Lauren Black Label.
Ryan Reynolds and wife Blake Lively were Gucci twinsies last night. Based on this moment, maybe all men should wear velvet tuxes.
Jay Z opted for a white jacket, like Becks, but with a peak-lapel collar and by Givenchy, like Mrs. Carter.
I love how these hot hubbies were perfectly happy to be arm candy for their beautiful wives. Tom Brady was also making velvet happen in Tom Ford.
Aw, cheer up, Kanye West: Kim is coming back into the picture. Plus, he looked super sharp in a Lanvin tails and vest tuxedo, sans tie, of course.
Andrew Garfield avoided the Beygency (kidding, kidding) in a smart Band of Outsiders silver tuxedo jacket.
Amar’e Stoudemire looked dapper in a navy-and-black tuxedo.
Well, hello there, Benedict Cumberbatch. A convenient gust of wind made for the perfect Sherlock-ian moment as his Ralph Lauren tails dramatically flowed in the breeze.
Oscar-nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor went literally white-tie in Dolce & Gabbana.
Johnny Depp brought in a little Willy Wonka with his Ralph Lauren tails, tuxedo shoes, cane, pocket watch, and gloves.
