Actual Priest Gets Tons of Compliments on Met Gala Outfit

Priests not attending the Met Gala.

When it comes to Met Gala looks, generally more is more. This year, Rihanna wore a bedazzled pope hat and Sarah Jessica Parker showed up with a mini-sculpture perched on her head. But one man proved that a simple outfit can have a big impact. James Martin, SJ, a Jesuit priest, wore his traditional vestments to the Met Gala, and was told he was “the best dressed dude here.” He did not upload a photo, but it’s safe to assume it was black and complete with a priest collar. He tweeted that his outfit, with many thinking it was a costume, was a big hit among the stars.

Even at the Met Gala, the key to true style is authenticity *sips tea from chalice.*
