Last night’s Met Gala honoring “The Garden of Time” brought out the best of the best to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Usher kept the theme going with his lavish Secret Garden after party.

After the A-list celebrities flocked to the green carpet to show off their interpretation of this year’s theme, inspired by a 1962 short story by J.G. Ballard, they put on their party shoes and headed to one of the various after-parties hosted in the city that doesn’t sleep. Usher, who walked the carpet in a custom Alexander McQueen, quickly changed clothes and headed to his Secret Garden fete in a dapper red velvet suit with an elaborate boutonniere on his jacket.

Usher enlisted D-Nice, the DJ who kept us bumping with Club Quarantine during the COVID lockdown, to set the music vibes for the night, and he did not disappoint. Judging by the smiles in the room, attendees appeared happy to let loose from the buttoned-up Met Gala event.
