Whenever an important award event like the Met Gala comes around, our favorite thing to do is be wowed by the flashy outfits celebrities adorn themselves with. But rarely do we see male celebrities as part of the well-dressed list. While a simple black tux is unmatched in elegance, we sometimes like to see a flash of color or uniqueness in these outfits. These 19 male celebs delivered in the creative category and arguably outdid their female counterparts.
