Elliot Page, right, attended the 2021 Met Gala looking sharp in a men's tailored suit for the actor's appearance at the 2021 Met Gala on Monday night.
The 34-year-old Juno star, formerly Ellen Page, posed for photos with fellow actors Kit Harrington and Leslie Rose.
Elliot wore a classic Balenciaga tuxedo for the annual high society bash, which was themed "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion."
The outing marked Elliot's first red carpet appearance since coming out as female-to-male trans.
The men's tailored suit featured an oversized dinner jacket with padded shoulders and extra-long sleeves. The outfit was accessorized with a crisp white shirt with a thick silver button at the collar in place of a tie, oversized black sneakers and a green rose pinned next to the lapels.
The appearance was no doubt a monumental moment for the actor, who told Time magazine that wearing women's clothing was traumatic.
"Even though (I was) an actor, just putting on a T-shirt cut for a woman would make me so unwell."
The Met Gala comes ahead of the opening of the exhibition Part 2, In America: An Anthology of Fashion in the American Wing period rooms at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 5, 2022.
Question: What do you think of Elliot's cute suit?
Ellen Page surprised no one by coming out as a female-to-male transgender in a lengthy message on Twitter.com Tuesday.
Page identifies as a "non-binary" person who is neither man nor woman. Page's pronouns are "he/they".
It's unlikely that Page will get many roles playing a non-binary he/they, so the 33-year-old Canadian will continue to play superhero Vanya Hargreeves, a woman with the ability to turn sound into energy, in The Umbrella Academy on Netflix.
A source told Variety: "Vanya is a cisgender [heterosexual] woman whose superpower involves unleashing force through the use of sound. There are no plans to change the character's gender."
That didn't sit well with some in the LGBT+ community who support Page's gender identity, but say it's either all or nothing.
One Twitter user wrote: "I am so proud of Elliot Page for transitioning and becoming a beacon of hope for humanity. That said, now that Page is a straight man he is officially an oppressor and deserves nothing but our contempt."
