Cam Newton had his own special Met Gala look with Custom Meshika Hat says the Washington Post

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."
