The majority of attendees go all out when it comes to impressing at the Met Gala, with many designers vying to have their creations make an appearance on the Met Gala. From Harry Styles' earrings to Cardi B's "menstruation" dress, last night's fashion even saw its fair share of extravaganza!

The simple jacket can be purchased from Dickies and is known as the "The Eisenhower Jacket". It's inspired by looks popularised during World War II.

The rapper paired the jacket with black pants and YEEZY Season 4 Military Combat Boots in the dark tone "Oil".
