Davidson stepped out with a plain black dress with a pair of sparkling necklaces for his gala look.

He covered the dress with a white overcoat with black trim with a few small jewel-encrusted pins on the lapel and the pocket of his coat.

The comedian finished his look with black sunglasses and black combat boots.

The funnyman was also seen on the official Instagram story for Thom Bo, where he was seen getting ready for the gala.

He was seen wearing a bowtie with the outfit in the video, though that was seemingly discarded for the necklaces by the time he got to the bash.

When asked by GQ about attending the event, Davidson said, ‘When I was first told I would maybe have the opportunity to attend, I thought it was a joke.’

He also joked there was a practical reason he agreed to wear a dress: ‘I’m excited for how easy it is to pee. You can literally just lift it up.’ 

The theme for this year’s Met Gala is ‘American Independence,’ which Davidson said also was another reason for wearing a dress.

‘If you’re gonna wear a dress, what better way or place to do it than the Met, you know? I’m really excited and really stoked that they thought I could pull this off, which is hilarious,’ Davidson said.

Browne added that he never had a doubt that Davidson could pull off this look for the Met Gala.

‘I always admire people who are willing to take risks. Who feel comfortable in being themselves no matter what they’re wearing,’ Browne said.

‘Pete wears the clothes so well, and this really lets his personality shine,’ Browne added.
