Emilio MadridSince Michele has been hard at work for Funny Girl, she told her son a little white lie ahead of the gala. “I told him I’m going to a wedding for my friends Anna and Karl with his uncle Jonathan [Groff],” she said. “So he thinks I’m going to Anna’s wedding tonight—which it sort of is.” Given the entire world watches and discusses the annual Met Gala red carpet, attending the star studded event is nerve racking for virtually any celebrity —let alone someone attending for the first time. The Last of Us star Bella Ramsey admits to Vogue that they did have pre Met jitters (mixed with excitement, of course). “I was looking forward to meeting up with people I haven’t seen for ages, and seeing a lotta cool clothes,” says Ramsey. “It’s the Met—it’s iconic!”

Though the actor had never attended the Met before Monday, they knew they needed a strong fashion look for the occasion. Dressed by Thom Browne, Ramsey wore a double breasted skirted tuxedo, covered in pinstripes and pearls (an homage to the late Karl Lagerfeld, who loved a pearl). Turns out, Browne’s design was an elevated, red carpet ready version of Ramsey’s everyday sleek, tailored style. “I’ve worn Thom Browne a lot for other press and loved it, so it made sense to wear them for my first Met,” says Ramsey. “They designed every part of the outfit, knowing I’d want to wear some version of a suit, and they did an amazing job. I loved working with the cool Thom Browne team and my beautiful stylist and friend, Fabio Immediato.”
