Lewis Hamilton’s Praiseworthy Gesture at the Met Gala

This year’s Met Gala celebrated all things American, with its theme being “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.” The red carpet, much like every year, saw the who’s who decoding the theme and flaunting their interpretation of the same. And amongst the other stars, Lewis Hamilton stood out for this one nice gesture of his.

Lewis Hamilton Does a Good Deed

Lewis Hamilton, a British racing driver, proved by his one not-so-small gesture that he didn’t just talk the talk but also walked the talk. The Formula One and seven-time world champion had a table set up for young Black designers. Hamilton saw the opportunity of informing the world about the contribution of the Black designers in American history and took it.

Lewis’s panache for music and fashion is no secret. Apart from being the Formula One driver, he takes a very keen interest in many other things. Given this is his sixth appearance at the Gala, it’s safe to say that fashion is definitely something that spikes his interest. In the interview, Hamilton talked about how important it is for him to uplift and celebrate Black culture and the people. Adding to it, he said that this year’s Met theme was a perfect way to express this thought. Lewis brought three (might we add well deserved) Black designers to the Gala – Edvin Thompson, Jason Rembert, and Kenneth Nicholson. Apart from the Black designers, Sha’Carri Richardson, American sprinter and singer Kehlani, and British fencer Miles Chamley-Watson were also a part of the group sitting at the table.

这有什么大不了的?

大都会庆典是一场明星云集的盛会,而且是一场昂贵的盛会。即使是一张晚会的门票也要35000美元。晚会上不出售单人票。大品牌买下这张桌子,邀请名人参加。考虑到这张桌子在晚会上的价格有多高,业余设计师通常负担不起。这意味着他们被排除在能够真正推动其职业发展的最大时尚活动之外。汉密尔顿的姿态给了这些设计师们急需的聚光灯。
