CULTED COMMUNITY TALKS: WAS JARED LETO’S MET LOOK CUTE OR COMPLETELY TERRIFYING?

The Met Gala has become fashion’s most publicised evening, with everyone tuning in to give their two cents on celebrities outfits. This year’s theme, Karl Lagerfeld: A Line Of Beauty, gave us plenty of archival Chanel looks. One person who didn’t stick to the expected route was the eccentric Jared Leto, who showed up in a furry cat suit representative of the late designer’s own pet Choupette. We reposted the look to our TikTok, and with over 2 million views, your reactions were equally as hilarious as they were terrified.

Tapping into Lagerfeld’s cat and supposed heir was seen on several occasions, notably elegantly showcased on Doja Cat, but when Jared Leto, at the time unknown to us, pulled up in a mascot costume, everyone had one thing on their mind, “I’m scared”, like @sophiaforgeron69 said.

In the video in question, Jared Leto can be seen in his Choupette-impersonating fit before the camera pans to a nearby security dog looking absolutely terrified, “Cause it’s Jared Leto” @userisrllyhot explains. @amastarita said what we were all thinking by commenting “This dog was all of us last night”. On a more educative note, @cassiegb explains that “That’s Vail, a security dog” that was at the “2021 Met Gala”. Vail, we hope you have recovered from this experience.

In fact, most of our TikTok community was feeling for Vail. @shalinipah said “Awee poor doggo” and @summer_winter_upmc just wanted to hug the sweet dog. @sohvianneli wanted “justice for the doggo”, who must have been disturbed by the amount of cat paraphernalia, but Jared Leto’s outfit just broke her.

Though with every outrageous outfit, and the actor’s was extremely outrageous, there are always going to be two sides of opinions: those who hate it and those who love it. Apart from the majority of the perturbed reactions, a few comments were actually defending Leto’s look, including @mj44__ who thought it “was so cute”. @mrdelisandwhich was Leto’s biggest defender, stating that they don’t care “if it’s a fur suit and if it’s Jared Leto, it’s so cute”.

Cute or terrifying, the look was definitely polarising, becoming one of the most talked about outfits of the entire Met. Jared Leto is known for sporting out-there looks at the Met Gala – think of 2019 when he wore a full Gucci outfit and carried an exact replica of his head as an accessory. Maybe it’s not all about landing on the best dressed list, but rather having the most discussed look, and Leto clearly knows this.
