When you name a famous actor, why is it always Brad Pitt? When you consider the film industry in general, his name is one of the first to come to mind. Probably because of his blockbuster acting career launched with 21 Jump Street - alongside the young and ever-handsome Johnny Depp - and spans three decades.

People have grown accustomed to women wearing avant-garde pieces and experimenting with fashion on the red carpet…but what about men?

Sure, the Met Gala is a place to avoid the bland suit-and-tie uniform. But in a world where we celebrate gender fluidity and your audacious fashion sense, it’s time we hold red carpet fashion to a fresh standard.

At the end of the day, who cares what someone’s wearing? If you wear a piece confidently, then no one can tell you that you look bad.

When asked about his recent red carpet sartorial antics, Brad Pitt gave the most iconic answer possible:

“I don’t know! We’re all going to die, so let’s mess it up,” Pitt told Variety.
