Let’s Talk About the Men at the Met

The biggest tragedy of the 2022 Met Gala was the rather boring outfits worn by the men that attended fashion’s biggest night. It has become normalized for women to wear heavy, ornate dresses and their male companions to wear a plain black suit. However, many men decided to switch it up this year and wear something other than the dreaded black garment. For some, this was a successful break from the norm, but for others,…

A Final Farewell
