Another day, another MET Gala article. Today it will be focused on Barry Keoghan‘s attendance last year.

Let’s dissect what the “Saltburn” actor wore to the event and what stood out to us.

For the Gala, Keoghan donned a Burberry custom check double-breasted wool twill suit with zip pockets in black and night blue, styled with a cashmere silk blend turtleneck top, night blue silk twill pocket square and black Burberry leather Derby lace-up shoes.

The actor complemented his ensemble with a Bulgari High Jewelry brooch. The piece was crafted in pink gold with a 10.49 carat tanzanite and pavé-set diamonds.

Another interesting aspect of his fit was his Bulgari Octo Roma Papillon Central Tourbillon watch with mechanical manufacture movement, manual winding, central flying tourbillon, minutes indication with two 18 kt rose gold Papillon hands, 24-hour jumping hour, ceramic ball bearing system, 18 kt rose gold case, black matt dial, tourbillon cage and Papillon system opening, transparent sapphire caseback, matt black alligator bracelet and 18 kt rose gold folding clasp. 

In an interview for GQ UK, Barry‘s stylist Ilaria Urbinati gushed about the watch and the importance the brand has for her: “Being from Rome, I personally have an emotional attachment to the brand as I grew up with all the men in my family wearing Bulgari. I loved the black matte to ground his look and bring out the depth of the plaid.”

Barry‘s grooming consisted in wet-looking short curls and skin-focused beauty treatments thanks to the previous prep by facialist Cynthia Marie Crawford, who used products and tools by Lyma and Retrouvé luxury skincare.

I am truly combing through the outfits that were worn last year and it is incredibly difficult to find something interesting to write about, because everything was just black and white due to the theme of the year which was dedicated to Karl Lagerfeld.

I knew I could bet on Ilaria Urbinati‘s work on Barry Keoghan though, who is undoubtedly one of the only men who’s willing to try something different on the red carpet.

Also, we could say that his collaboration with Burberry now feels like a premonition, since the “Masters of the Air” actor was announced as a Global Ambassador last March–I can forgive him not strictly sticking to the theme because I couldn’t bear another black boring outfit.

I appreciate his flirty provocativeness, finally someone not afraid to be unapologetically himself.
