Moving onto the men…

Interest in men’s fashion has started to increase massively over the past two decades, this means even the men’s fashion choices are being closely watched!

Topping the list this year is Justin Bieber, the singer has attended the event several times before and is known for his individual fashion choices. As one of the best known singers in the world it’s no shock that fans are searching to see if he will attend and who he will be dressed by! Fans have searched so much that the New Look team have seen an 890% increase! He is more than likely to be in attendance with his wife and model, Hayley Bieber, but will they be dressed by the same designer? Which route will he/them take? The world is waiting and watching to know!

Coming second is rapper Travis Scott, the star has been wrapped up in controversy since events unfolded at his festival, Astro World. The performer has kept a relatively low profile since the events, with him rumoured to be in attendance, it will be one of the biggest events he will have attended since the event. Keeping this in mind his rumoured attendance has spiked searches by 97% ahead of the event. If he attends, will he opt to stand out or keep a low profile? We’ll have to wait and see!

Last but not least, third place has been taken by ex-footballer and men’s fashion icon David Beckham. Last appearing at the Met Gala with wife, Victoria, in 2014, they are rumoured to be returning to the event this year. This is likely to be, in no small part, thanks to his son, Brooklyn Beckham marrying actress, Nicola Peltz. The Englishman is always impeccably turned out, meaning his fans and fashion lovers alike have created an 86% increase in searches for the star! His possible attendance will now be watched with bated breath by all.
