That was evident at the Met gala 2021, when the fashion-loving bro wore a polished dress by Thom Browne, in lieu of the more expected suit. The comedian has been experimenting with fashion this past year, thanks to his stylist Britt Theodora. Just last week, she put him in a T-shirt by The Vampire’s Wife, a purple Bode knit cardigan, and bold print pants by Somdusca for his appearance on

Theodora brought that same risk-taking philosophy to Davidson’s Thom Browne look. “We felt the dress represented Thom Browne’s identity as an American designer who is constantly breaking boundaries and norms,” Theodora tells

Vogue.“The classic shape of the dress gave the perfect ode to American tailoring.”“Rebecca Selva from Fred Leighton had custom garnet and diamond teardrop lapel pins made for a suit jacket. I love unusual jewelry especially for an occasion as special as the Met. The floating teardrops were a representation of celebration and joy in this monumental moment for Pete,” says Davidson's stylist, Britt Theodora.

The Met gala was only two days after the 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, in which Davidson’s father, a firefighter, died. To honor him, Davidson wore garnets, his father’s birthstone, in the form of an antique necklace by Fred Leighton and custom lapel pins that appeared to be floating. “Pete’s father passed away on 9/11, and given that the Met this year was unusually in September, we wanted to pay a tribute to his dad,” says Theodora. “What made the necklace stand out was that they [the garnets] looked like black diamonds but when the light hit the necklace you can see the hints of red, which also feels very patriotic.”

Davidson's look was further elevated thanks to his groomer, Kumi Craig.
