It’s obvious that the X-Men’s Hellfire Gala took significant inspiration from the Met Gala, but which gala worked the red carpet better?
The Met Gala is the event of the season for out-of-the-box fashion statements and red carpet magic, and the X-Men’s Hellfire Gala proved to be no different. With golden armor and capes, the Costume Institute Gala looked a lot like the Hellfire Gala, but when put side by side, who had the coolest costumes?
There’s no denying that both events went above and beyond, set the stage for political statements, and shocked the world by breaking molds. Nevertheless, a comic book soiree isn’t limited by the same laws of physics that the real world is. Plus, superpowers allow for another level of creativity when it comes to fashion and costumes. This doesn’t mean they’re guaranteed to come out on top in the battle for avant-garde greatness though. Regardless, there are a few outfits from each event that, when put side by side, bear striking similarities. So, all of that considered, who won this fashion face-off… the heroes or the humans?
