Celebrities attend Thom Browne’s front row ahead of Met Gala – WWD
Ahead of fashion’s big night on Monday — it would be the Met Gala, of course — several famous faces made a fashionable pit stop at the Thom Browne show, held Friday night at the Javits Center.
Inside the performance hall were Maisie Williams shaking hands with Grammy winner Jon Batiste; David Harbour, ahead of the final season of ‘Stranger Things,’ posing with the teddy bear left in his seat; new couple Charles Melton, inspired by Timothée Chalamet and shirtless in his Thom Browne suit, and Chase Sui Wonders; Tommy Dorfman and Leslie Odom Jr. are thrilled to finally meet in real life; Escape “Licorice Pizza” Cooper Hoffman handles fashion madness like a pro; Ella Emhoff and her boyfriend Sam Hine are well at home with the staff of Thom Browne, and the likes of Danai Gurira, Tom Sturridge, Simon Rex, Imogen Poots, Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert, James Norton, Will Poulter, Amandla Stenberg , Antoni Porowski, King Princess, Janicza Bravo, Evan Mock and Katerina Tannenbaum get in on the action.
Dorfman confirmed she’ll be attending her first Met Gala on Monday and performing the theme “contemporarily with a classic silhouette.”
His predictions for the night?
“I feel like we’re going to see a lot of wigs for some reason. I really feel like we’re going to see gold. I feel like it’s all going to be a big loot,” she said, “I think everyone is going to give loot.”
King Princess was nearby, wearing a fitted blazer and a pair of longer shorts.
“I saw that on the rack and thought it was very Angus Young,” she said. “I’m scared of a shirt. I don’t know why, I think it’s a gay thing. Unless it’s like a basketball jersey.
She won’t be at the Met Gala but is ready to throw a party or two.
“I’m here, I’m here to hang out and party,” she said.
