10 times my kid’s outfits were better than anything at the Met Gala

The annual Met Gala is the place for high society to see and be seen in the most glamorous, avant garde and jaw-dropping fashion. From models to movie stars to even politicians, anyone who is anyone was on the red carpet at the event of the fall.

Scrolling through this years looks, I am reminded of all the creative clothing choices my youngest child has made over the years. From the moment he first became aware of clothes, he’s loved to dress up and express himself in unique ways. While I may have a mother’s bias, I think his looks could definitely upstage or at least turn a head or two if they were to strut their stuff at the Gala.

Here are a few of my favorite looks from recent years:

Overalls And Boots

Nothing says style like a snazzy pair of red cowboy boots.

Red Warrior

What can I say? The kid likes red.

Stealing The Scene In Green

But green is also a favorite choice.

Swashbuckling Swagger

The coolest kids always accesorize with a pirate sword.

Spring Forward

A basket makes a great handbag.

Back To Basics

You never go wrong with a dress shirt and tie.

Goggles Galore

On the bright side, he’s always ready for the pool.

The Devil Is In The Details

The fairy wings definitely balance this look.

Beautiful In Blue

A true statement look.


Don’t know what this is, but I like it!

As he gets older, my son does seem to prefer more “conventional” clothing choices, but every once in a while he still surprises me. I would not be surprised if one day he really was an attendee at the Met Gala, or if a celebrity went wearing one of his designs.

The Met Gala is all about celebrating artistic expression, which my son has in spades.
