The Met Gala is the highlight of the red carpets of the fashion world. A themed charity fundraiser, the event, held on the first Monday in May, always features stars allowing themselves to dress up in ridiculous styles. This year, the theme was an expansive one as well, "Camp." Unlike some years, where most starlets either ignore or fail to land the theme, this one was easy enough that nearly everyone tried their hand at it, including the Jonas brothers and their wives. Nick Jonas’ Littlefinger Instagram after the Met Gala was an acknowledgment that, even if it wasn’t the camp look he was shooting the moon for, the result landed him among the stars.
The reason this theme was so easy is that red carpet fashion, especially themed red carpet fashion, is campy by definition. Camp, as Susan Sontag defined it in 1964, is the wearing of something utterly ridiculous, but in a manner so self-serious it demands the viewers take the ludicrous garment at face value as high fashion. This is why Billy Porter’s Egyptian Icarus golden god and Cardi B.’s quilted couch Venus creation both counted as successful wins.
Nick Jonas and his wife Priyanka Chopra arrived in outfits that seemed to befit a high fashion take on the Addams Family, with Nick channeling Gomez facial hair realness. That was until someone pointed out that he rather looked like Littlefinger.
Once you see it, you can’t unsee it. Nick Jonas had the self-awareness to recognize that too. Check out his Instagram post, post-red carpet walk:
Of course, that wasn’t the only Jonas representation on the red carpet either. As most are aware, Nick’s older brother, Joe Jonas recently married Sophie Turner, of Game of Thrones fame. (The wedding in Vegas is expected to be one of several to celebrate with different parts of their extensive network of family and friends, much like Nick and Priyanka did.) Sadly, Turner and Joe Jonas didn’t make as many waves for their 80s graffiti art inspired suits, even if they were loudly matching.
On the other hand, one Turner learned that fans had started comparing her brother-in-law to the character who spent years manipulating her Sansa Stark on screen, she couldn’t let it slide. After all, his Instagram caption was calling her character out.
When Sophie Turner first revealed she was dating Joe Jonas back in 2016, fans weren’t sure what to make of the duo, nor were they sure what to make of Nick Jonas and Chopra when they first walked the Met Gala red carpet together in 2017, and then went public with their relationship a year later.
However, the four of them seem to get along really well, with both Chopra and Turner ganging up with the wife of the third Jonas Brother, and forming a trio known fans refer to as "The Jonas Sisters." It’s good to see that the family ties between these couples are tight enough to publicly tease each other on Instagram too. Let’s just hope Littlefinger-like machinations stay well out of it.
