Yesterday, simply hours earlier than getting into the Costume Institute’s new exhibition, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” Nick Jonas is the image of ease at The Mark Resort. “Gorgeous day,” he remarks over espresso. “Prepare to be amazed.” The Texas-born singer, clad in a white bathrobe, is carrying the calm that comes along with his third consecutive Met Gala. “As a man, there’s not a whole lot you have to do to prepare for these things,” he says, declaring “lived-in manicure” obtained days earlier than was practically half the battle. The remainder of the night time’s success, he has discovered, lives in a “state of mind, and a really good haircut.”
Superstar groomer Marissa Machado retains Jonas’s intently cropped fade in place with a spritz of V76 Hair and Scalp Tonic and a pinch of Moroccanoil Texture Clay, in addition to a dab of cream round his eyes to make sure he received’t look “too tired.” To get that virile “slight pump going on” beneath his Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo—his favourite Met Gala go well with to this point—an in-room mini exercise of push-ups is so as. “Hello, Rihanna,” he says as he steadily pushes his toned arms up and down. Whereas it might be extra of a psychological train than anything, the added power actually doesn’t harm, particularly when tasked with pulling off a 24-karat gold–embroidered jacket late into the night time.
After a misting of CoStume Nationwide’s Scent Intense, the singer arrives at his greatest resolution of the night time: bow tie along with his gold crucifix necklace, or no bow tie? “Collectively, it’s Godfather III,” warns Jonas’s stylist, Avo Yermagyan. “With out, it’s Godfather I.” And with that, he slips off the accent and out of the resort for some pre-party sustenance: two slices of pepperoni pizza. The “epic” journey to the gala is only some subway stops and fan selfies away. What might be breezier than skipping Fifth Avenue rush hour site visitors? In spite of everything, he says, “Tonight is all about elegance.”
