Rapper Jack Harlow walked the steps of the Met Gala for the first time last night in New York and simply had fans obsessed.
The star spoke to YouTuber Emma Chamberlain about her first Met Gala experience, keeping her calm and collected despite her nerves. The rapper gained traction for songs like “Nail Tech” and “First Class,” which gained popularity on TikTok.
Harlow wore a dark chocolate Givenchy suit with a slight sheen to the fabric. The suit jacket was double-breasted with four dark brown buttons on one side and a deep pocket on the other. It was fitted to the hitmaker’s body and layered over a white shirt with a crisp white collar that peeked out over the jacket.
For footwear, the rapper wore black pointy-toe dress shoes with a shiny finish, just like the suit. Although this is Harlow’s first-ever Met Gala, he managed to pull off a stunning look with some help from the best at Givenchy.
The theme for the 2022 Met Gala is “In America: An Anthology of Fashion”, exploring the foundations of American fashion – specifically, identifiers of American style and individual designers. The exhibit will include 100 garments by independent designers and couturiers from the 1800s to the mid-1900s in the period rooms of the museum’s American Wing. There will also be “freeze frames” of film thumbnails in each room, showcasing the aesthetics of eight different directors: Janicza Bravo, Sofia Coppola, Julie Dash, Tom Ford, Regina King, Martin Scorsese, Autumn de Wilde and Chloe Zhao. Supported by Instagram and Condé Nast, the event raises funds for future exhibits and enhancements to the Costume Institute. The exhibition will be open to the public from May 7 and, together with Part 1, which opened last September, will end on September 5, 2022.
