While some of the world's biggest stars were hitting the Met Gala red carpet in frills and frocks, SA's Trevor Noah showed up to the swanky event in a slightly more casual T-shirt and suit combo.

This year's theme was Celebrating Camp: Notes on Fashion and drew a whole range of looks from Cardi B's overflowing dress to Harry Styles' sheer jumpsuit.

Our Trevor is pretty much a regular at these things now and decided to sport a more low-key outfit.

But it wasn't without its spice.

The simple white shirt carried a message in black lettering.

It's words of wisdom? "This is all a formality."


The reactions on social media were mixed.

The invitation-only event, famed for its A-list celebrities and haute couture gowns, is a benefit for New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art and also marks the opening of the Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibit.
