Jared Leto lookalikes took over the 2022 Met Gala and left the internet completely in awe. Fans first mistook “Mystery Man” Fredrik Robertson for the 50-year-old actor after arriving at the event covered in a silver ensemble.

Even publications like The New York Times and Vulture reported that Leto arrived at the event shortly after Robertsson arrived.

Correction: A previous tweet misidentified Fredrik Robertsson as Jared Leto. We removed the incorrect tweet.

Robertsson certainly looked slightly identical to the Fight Club star. He donned a silver Iris Van Herpen jumpsuit covered in silver scaly wings to celebrate the 2022 Met Gala’s Gilded Glamor theme.

Meanwhile, the real Jared Leto arrived at the event with his lookalike. The Oscar-winning actress rocked a classic Gucci fit as she teamed up with the label’s creative director, Alessandro Michele.

The duo wore identical embroidered ivory gold suits, red bow ties, black leather gloves and sported matching long braids pinned in a similar metal bobby pin.


All about Fredrik Robertsson

Fredrik Robertsson describes himself as a “creative director” and a “fashion addict” on Instagram.

According to a 2019 Vogue profile, Robertsson revealed that her “turning point” style caught the eye of some editors at the magazine. The story defined Robertsson as “the editor of Boy magazine” and said he “serves on a philanthropic board that supports LGBTQ activists and organizations around the world.”

Robertson recently made headlines after being mistaken for Jared Leto at the 2022 Met Gala and is believed to be the actor’s lookalike.

Jared Leto has long been known for making the news with his Met Gala looks. In 2019, the actor arrived at the event with a replica of his head.

This year, Leto lookalikes dominated the Met Gala, with several people mistaking Fredrik Robertsson for the actor and Leto pairing himself up with Alessandro Michele.

Following the lookalike confusion, many shocked fans also took to Twitter to react to the situation:
