The fashion and food worlds collided at last night’s Met Gala, where chef Marcus Samuelsson was dressed to impress in a hot pink suit, colorful Nike shoes, and a black cape with embroidered gold trim. Meanwhile, his wife Maya Haile looked stunning in a floor-length black cut-out cape dress accented with gold trim along the neckline and a color-studded gold and silver diamond pattern along the bottom hem. Both ensembles were curated by New York-based designer Stacey Jordan and were very well received by fans and friends of the “Chopped” judge.
“You upped the game,” Bon Appétit’s Editor-In-Chief Dawn Davis wrote in the comments section of Samuelsson’s Instagram post, which has also been littered with dozens of flame and red-heart emojis. “Have fun!! You both look DIVINE!!!” added actress Debi Mazar. “Sharp Suit Chef. You guys look great,” a third fan quipped, while a fourth declared that the husband-and-wife duo “understood the assignment.”
In addition to turning heads on the red carpet, Vogue reports that Samuelsson was also in charge of the dinner menu for last night’s Met Gala. The restaurateur enlisted the help of chefs Amirah Kassem, Melisa King, and Lauren Von Der Pool to curate the meal, with each chef taking on one course of the dinner. Samuelsson himself was in charge of the main entree and chose to serve “a barbecue striploin with spring carrots, crispy rice, and cornbread crumble.” If the reception of his outfit is any indication, there’s a good chance his dish was likewise a hit.
