Not to be outdone by Tom Brady, Cam Newton had his own special 2018 Met Gala look topped with a custom Meshika Hat.
In her article, "Cam Newton had his own special Met Gala look with Custom Meshika Hat" , Cindy Boren of the Washington Post writes:
"He was delightfully, singularly Cam in an outfit that was part classy lounge lizard, part rakish caballero and pure Harry Caray. In your well-exfoliated face, Brady.
First, an explanation. The event is the annual Met Gala at New York’s Metropolitan Museum (and other stops) and hosted in part by Vogue’s Anna Wintour, so a certain level of “creativity” is expected, particularly with a lofty theme like “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” Which is why Rihanna, Jared Leto, Chadwick Boseman and just about everyone else had a religious theme of some sort."
She reflects back on Alberto's work for the Met Gala last year:
"Vogue wrote of last year’s look that he arrived in a “a deep aubergine Versace tuxedo, Giuseppe Zanotti rhinestone-studded loafers, and a feathered top hat by Alberto Hernandez. “For a major red carpet event, I understand the importance of being different — having a little ‘sauce’ so they say — but without trying too hard,” Newton said last year. “That balance is not easy to find. Having fun is the key and being comfortable is equally important. The accessories play a major role in setting the tone — from my glasses to the suit buttons to my cuff links — as well as the shoes.”
"This year, though, you couldn’t miss him. He had on a wide-brimmed hat of the sort he often wears and a colorful Tom Ford tuxedo."
