Red carpet host Keke Palmer asked Hamilton how his outfit tied into this year’s theme and he said that he felt “really, really fortunate” that Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour had agreed to host his table.
He said: “I’ve brought four incredible, young, Black talented designers,” he said, “so we’ve got a great host of people tonight and it’s about just highlighting beauty and excellence and talent.”
Accompanying Hamilton was American designer Kenneth Nicholson, who created his custom suit complete with a lace calf-length shirt. In an Instagram post, Hamilton said Nicholson’s “craftsmanship and point of view advances menswear in truly inspiring ways”.
After the Gala’s red carpet live stream ended, Vogue played a video with Hamilton talking more about his table and his work in the fashion world. “We’re living in a time where diversity and inclusion is so important and that’s something I’m fighting for in my industry,” he said.
