Tom Brady’s on-field heroics can sometimes feel like they’re conjured by a magician, and his Met Gala ensemble seemed to echo the wizardly refrain.

The G.O.A.T. sported a black tuxedo with gold detailing and a pair of very shiny shoes to the “Heavenly Bodies”-themed fundraiser on Monday night. He also wore a black turtleneck underneath his jacket, because if anything screams “fashion forward” it is a garment that brushes the bottom of one’s chin.

Brady attended Anna Wintour’s signature event beside his wife, the model and human embodiment of positivity, Gisele Bundchen, whose stunning golden Versace gown looked like silken sunshine. But it was not Bundchen’s ensemble that captured the hearts and keyboard strokes of the Twitter faithful. It was Brady’s suit, which reminded the online jokesters of everything from a bullfighter to a circus performer.

Meanwhile, Cambridge-raised actress, comedian, and all around queen Mindy Kaling looked like pure royalty on the red carpet. The Oceans 8 star turned heads in a gown by the Greek designer Vassilis Zoulias paired with navy gloves and a jaw-dropping jeweled crown.
