This Man Won the Met Gala

Stick to the Theme, And You Won’t Go Wrong

By Geoff Rynex ·

While it looked like most of the attendees at last night’s Met Gala overthought things by not just picking out a stellar Commes des Garçons piece for the Rei Kawakubo-themed event, there were some excellent showings. So let’s quickly recognize the clear winner, Rami Malek, who at least paid homage to the honoree with a very red Diore Homme suit, with the requisite ace tailoring job, a narrow-collared air tie, textured lapel and the two-dimensional black carnation. And that’s saying nothing of the chunky black patent-leather boots.

There are so many places this all could have gone wrong, and it doesn’t. This is standing ovation-worthy stuff.

Well Done:
Migos and Donald Glover. They treated the event with the ambition it deserved and are rewarded with a shout-out here.

Thanks For Playing:
Lil Yachty, who’d really love to show you through his creepy, tacky chocolate factory.

Geoff Rynex is the only person named Geoff Rynex in the history of mankind. He would rather have the best burger than the best steak, likes hearing bartender stories and spends too much money on clothes.
