The Met Gala is an annual fundraising event which benefits the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. Each year it celebrates a different theme and also marks the opening of the institute’s yearly fashion exhibit. The gala is a high profile event and is attended by celebrities dressed in their best, most fashion-savvy outfits.

The cost of a ticket for anyone outside of the official guest list is $30,000, and the event includes a cocktail hour with a red carpet, entertainment, and a formal dinner.

This year, all of our favorite celebrities were dressed to impress. One person in particular who broke fashion boundaries and surprised us all was Will Smith’s fashion savvy son, Jaden Smith.

Smith attended the event in an all black Louis Vuitton suit…with an interesting accessory: a handful of his own cut-off dreadlocks.

Smith decided to bring his own locks of hair with him to the high-profile event to match the theme of the gala this year, which was Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art Of The In-Between.

Rei Kawakubo is an influential designer who “invites us to rethink fashion as a site for content creation, recreation, and hybridity,” says Andrew Bolton, the Costume Institute’s curator in charge.

Jaden Smith is well known for his unique and eclectic fashion sense and often bizarre but intriguing behavior, but somehow he managed to pull a fast one on us all with his unconventional accessory choice.
