Not Jared Leto: Meet Frederik Robertsson the Met Gala 2022 Standout

Fredrik Robertsson

Imagine being mistaken for Jared Leto.

On Monday, May 2, various new outlets reported that Jared Leto walked the 2022 Met Gala red carpet in a eyebrow-raising look. Some trumpeted it as a complete transformation. And they were right: transformed into a completely different person.

The person in question, wearing an over-the-top from the couture designer Iris van Herpen, was Fredrik Robertsson. Robertsson is a self described "creative dictator" and "fashion addict" who had been chronicling his Met Gala makeover all day.

In 2019, a Vogue profile on Robertsson noted how his “head-turning” style had caught the eye of certain editors at the magazine. In the story, Robertsson was described as “the editor-in-chief of Boy magazine” and as someone who “sits on a philanthropic board that supports LGBTQ activists and organizations globally.”

Leto did arrive at the 2022 Met Gala later in the night, but he wore a suit by Gucci’s Alessandro Michele and dressed exactly like the designer with whom he arrived.
