For men's fashion.
The Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is equivalent to the NYC Celebrity Fashion Ball. It is a star studded event, in which all the prominent clothing designers are showcasing their talent. Just like any other profession, there are some hits and some misses. Let’s start with a few of the hits.
One guy that is used to being in the spotlight is Tom Brady. Whether the public is looking at his passing ability on the football field or his model wife, there is always a buzz about some part of his life. Aside from the Quarterback gig, Brady has appeared in commercials, magazines, and has graced the front pages of the tabloids more than once. He arrived at the Met Gala in a style that we expect from him. His navy, velvet-looking jacket by Tom Ford was paired with a crisp white shirt, black bow tie and a lighter black trouser. It was an A+, in a sea of ordinary tuxedos. However, Tom Brady did receive just as much press for his unusual hair-do at the Gala, as he did for his style. It was kind of “GQ meets the Little Rascals”. Tom, “Definitely keep the outfit, but fire the hair stylist!”
