Calla Wahlquist

Although Met men are sometimes boring, the Guardian Australia reporter Calla Wahlquist explains why this can work for this year’s theme.

Male Met Gala attendees often jump on the theme, on the grounds that the biggest risk of wearing a well-tailored black tuxedo is that you might annoy fashion bloggers to death.

This year, however, there is hope. The Golden Age is one of the easiest themes to nod to, without fully committing to it. At the end of the 19th century, men still mostly wore suits and breeches had given way to trousers.

The trick is the length. The two most popular fits of the time were the morning coat, a single-breasted coat with a cut front and tail, designed to stay out of the way when riding, and an evening coat, which had much the same cut but was often double-breasted. The tuxedo was introduced at the end of the Victorian era. It had no tail but still fell on the upper thighs. Most costumes were black, brown or gray. The vests were where the risks were taken.

theater producer Jordan Roth gave his bustle an industrial gothic makeover, and brought him on as his date.

This padding you see is historically accurate in spirit, if not form. The padded bumps of the bustles were once stuffed with horsehair.
