To be frank, Sebastian Stan could wear a garbage bag, and I’d bow down, but Stan’s Met Gala 2022 look deserves all the rounds of applause. Seriously, if Margot Robbie drops out of the new Barbie movie, I nominate Stan. Strutting onto the Met Gala red carpet, effortlessly cool as ever, Stan stood out in multiple ways, from his monochrome, highlighter pink look to its less-than-gilded vibe.

I know what you’re thinking: how does Stan’s all-pink, streetwear-inspired Met Gala outfit go with the 2022 Met Gala theme, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion”? Unclear, but it certainly looks good on Stan.

Adherence to the theme aside, Stan’s look was a showstopper nonetheless. The actor wore a full Valentino look, with what appears to be a hot pink wool jacket atop a bomber jacket and a t-shirt of the same color, all paired with a baggy pair of hot pink slacks.

Fashion lovers will remember this look from Valentino’s viral fall/winter 2023 runway show, which featured almost exclusively hot-pink outfits.

Stan put his own spin on the Valentino ‘fit, particularly when it came to his grooming. Rather than the wet, slicked-down hair look Valentino featured on the runway, Stan appeared at the Met Gala with a clean, fluffed-up hair look, courtesy of celebrity men’s groomer Jamie Taylor.

As far as accessories go, Stan kept things minimal with his sunglasses and his chunky-platform sneakers in the same hot pink as the rest of his Met Gala look.

All in all, Stan’s 2022 Met Gala look is certainly a lesson in Fashion with a capital F.
