According to Page Six, Leto’s look is from the designer’s fall 2018 show when creative director Alessandro Michele had models walk the runway holding similar replicas, which per Gucci’s Instagram was meant to highlight “the work of a designer — the act of cutting, slicing, reconstructing materials and fabrics to create a new personality and identity with them.”

This year’s Met Gala certainly lived up to the theme of celebrating Camp. It is tied to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “Camp: Notes on Fashion” exhibit, whose title is a reference to Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on ‘Camp.'”

“This is a very important moment because we will collaborate on the creation of this fantastic exhibition that has a DNA that is related to my work, working to the expression of human nature,” Michele explained in February, reports Vogue. “Camp is a beautiful word.”
