We Asked Joe Jonas About His Evolved Red Carpet Style

The singer wore custom H&M for the 2017 Met Gala.

DNCE frontman and famed Jonas brother Joe Jonas is no stranger to walking red carpets. And let's be real, the dude has come a long way since scrappy skater haircuts and skinny scarves. But Jonas knows those looks were an important part of figuring out his own personal style—a journey that plays into his look for this year's Met Gala red carpet, where he dressed in custom H&M.

"I can look back on the outfits I thought were really cool and laugh," Jonas says. "Now, I understand how important it is to pay attention to detail and design."

[post_ads]Detail and design is especially significant for a night like the Met Gala, where a specific theme guides attendees and designers. This year's theme, Comme des Garçons' designer Rei Kawakubo, was an exciting theme for both Jonas and H&M. Jonas's look is a custom red silk suit with a black stripe, black lapels, and black silk shirt.

"We have a special connection to Kawakubo's work here at H&M, having collaborated with Comme des Garçons for our 2008 designer collection," says Pernilla Wohlfahrt, H&M Head of Design. "We really wanted to pay tribute to her in our own way, by focusing on themes that are always present in her work."

For Jonas, the CDG style really came through in the color and fabric of the look.

"It has this familiarity to it, I think," says Jonas. "It has a nice nod to the dark, mysterious feeling you see when you see Comme."
Black, red, and silk were prominent trends on this year's red carpet, with guys like Rami Malek, Riz Ahmed, and Future sporting similar looks.

Red carpet looks might be entertaining, but they can also be alienating—when would just anyone have the opportunity to wear full red silk tux, really? We like Jonas's takeaway: Remember what you're drawn to.

"There's a specific attention to detail when it comes to a night like this," says Jonas. "From the way guys cuff their shirts, to where their tuxedo pants fall. It's nice to be able to see those details, understand them, and try them out yourself."

Here are some more of our favorite looks from the night.
