Tom Brady has made some distinctive sartorial choices and the 2019 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Benefit is no exception.
The quarterback for the New England Patriots wore a classic maroon tuxedo for the “Camp: Notes on Fashion” theme at the 2019 Met Gala. Since the football player married supermodel Gisele Bündchen ten years ago, he’s become an expected attendee of the gala each year.
Apparently aware of his fashion clout by association, Brady posted black-and-white photos to his Twitter and Instagram accounts before the event, asking followers to guess which color he’d chosen for his traditional attire.
Brady and Bündchen matched on the pink carpet, as they typically do at the Met Gala, both wearing shades of pink. Bündchen’s stunning Dior gown shows that fashion can be both “beautiful and sustainable,” she wrote on Instagram.
Even the Patriots are getting in on Brady’s comedic notoriety. The team’s Twitter account shared which hockey, baseball and basketball teams were matched up for Monday night — and Tom Brady is just his own league entirely.
At last year’s event, he wore a black tuxedo with a turtleneck sweater underneath and gold-adorned lapels, matching Bündchen, who wore a gold gown by Versace.
At the 2017 event, he wore a dark suit jacket, black bowtie and white button-down to match Bündchen’s metallic silver dress. But the football star was also the best Instagram husband, taking photos of his model wife on the carpet. Who needs paparazzi when you have Brady’s photography skills?
In previous years, his looks have been as simple as a black tuxedo in 2014. But he’s always matching his wife, of course.
