Jared Leto accessorizes with own severed head at Met Gala
Jared Leto made quite an entrance at the 2019 Met Gala, which is currently in full swing in New York City.
The actor and Thirty Seconds To Mars frontman hit the carpet with a severed head in hand. And it wasn’t just any head as the replica looked exactly like Leto himself.
Each Meta Gala falls on the first Monday in May. It brings together art, fashion, film and music in celebration of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibit.
Each year plays off a certain theme, and this year’s 71st annual event is “Camp: Notes on Fashion.” The theme is inspired by Susan Sontag’s, “Notes on Camp,” a 1964 essay widely credited with bring the notion of “camp” to the mainstream.
In terms of camp and fashion, it often plays off of something that is intentionally bad or over-exaggerates. How does one accomplish this theme in a modern era? Well, apparently with your own severed head if you’re Leto.
Leto shared some behind-the-scenes looks at his attire on his Instagram story. One of the uploads included Shawn Mendes’ reaction to the head.
