Ezra Miller turns heads with hypnotic Met Gala look
Ezra Miller is known for slaying red carpets, but the Fantastic Beasts star has served his possibly most eccentric look yet at the camp-themed Met Gala on May 6.
Miller was barely recognisable as he walked down the Met Gala’s pink carpet, wrapped in a white Burberry cape and concealing his face behind a mask.
The performer revealed a stunning outfit beneath the cape—a pinstripe suit decorated with a diamond corset, a golden bird pin and a matching tail.
But the most striking element of Miller’s ensemble was his make up. The star dropped the mask to reveal two more sets of eyes and a solitary third—or, well, seventh—eye on his forehead. His lips were painted bright red, completing the look.
Miller is not new to stunning red carpets wherever he goes. In November, Miller served stunning looks at the London and Paris premieres of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
Ezra Miller keeps serving stunning looks
Miller wore an oversized Montcler black hooded puffer cape at the film’s premiere in the French capital which inspired comparisons to a “human sex toy” on social media.
The following week in London, Miller again wore a cape—this time a white goose-feathered creation from Givenchy—and had the “Avada Kevadra” curse written in the palms of his hands.
Even off the red carpet, Miller is not afraid of challenging conventions, like when he turned up at Comic-Con last year dressed as a sexy Toadette.
Ahead of the Met Gala, the annual event traditionally held on the first Monday of May in support of the Metropolitan Art Museum’s Costume institute, Miller posed for Vogue along with Love, Simon star Keiynan Lonsdale.
The gender-defying photoshoot saw the two actors serving camp opulence in contrasting black-and-white outfits.
Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele, Harry Styles, Lady Gaga and Serena Williams joined Vogue editor Anna Wintour in chairing the annual event, whose theme this year was inspired by American author’s Susan Sontag’s 58-page essay Notes on ‘Camp,’ published in 1964.
Miller was not the only Met Gala attendee experimenting with surrealist outfits—singer and actor Jared Leto used his head as an accessory, striking poses on the pink carpet channeling a Hamletic “to camp or not to camp” dilemma.
