Michael Urie did his first Met Gala right.
“I was like, ‘If I’m gonna go, I’m gonna nail it,’” he told Page Six on Thursday night. “Especially this year with that [“Camp: Notes on Fashion”] theme. I was on a TV show that was camp; when I was a kid, camp was my jam.”
The “Ugly Betty” star, 38, wowed at fashion’s biggest night last Sunday with a half-tuxedo, half-gown ensemble designed by Christian Siriano.
Chatting at the Paley Honors that celebrated stars of the LGBTQ+ community, along with commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, Uri opted for a whole pink suit this time around but gushed over the designer of his show-stopping Met Gala look.
“Christian Siriano is a genius,” he said.
“And his staff and he made it so impeccably, that it was comfortable,” Urie added. “I had a high heel that was the same height as a Doc boot, it was brilliant, and I could pee!”
Although he admitted walking around with a train was the hard part of the evening.
