Once again, the best-dressed men at the Met Gala were essentially the entire A-list, out in full force for the Costume Institute Gala, chaired by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

This year the winners, with tuxedos on the leading men of movies and fashion, included Burberry, Calvin Klein Collection, Givenchy, Lanvin, Ralph Lauren, and Tom Ford who outfitted the best-dressed men at the Met Gala.
