The latest edition of the Met Gala took place in New York on May 2. Every year, the Metropolitan Museum of Art hosts a fundraising gala for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. A theme is laid down and the most popular personalities across fashion, film, and social media, dress up according to the theme.

In the simplest of terms, Met Gala can be seen as a fancy dress competition for celebrities. Some celebrities served looks, while some served yawns. The theme, this year, was 'In America: An Anthology of Fashion'.

While everyone was busy looking and judging celeb looks, desis found something which caught their eye.
Sebastian Stan's look was highly similar to what Govinda did years ago.

This look got us thinking of how Govinda had been pushing the fashion envelope since the 90s. Much before Ranveer Singh got praised for his outfits. Govinda has been the fashion icon extraordinaire. His sartorial sense had been much ahead of his time.

Govinda has always been Met Gala ready. And here is all the proof you need.

1. Quirky printed shirts are in rage now. One in five Instagram thrift stores sell quirky printed shirts. But guess who made it fashion back in the day?

4. A few years ago, these kitschy printed shirts would have been labelled as faux pas. But Govinda, was living years ahead. One day, we'll see fashion influencers in a similar shirt. And I kid you not, when I say that day is near.
