Lewis Hamilton sports a net skirt and mesh shirt to the 2021 Met Gala
Lewis Hamilton sported a lace net skirt over his suit on Monday as he joined the biggest stars in showbusiness at the Met Gala in New York.
The Formula 1 driver, 36, looked suave in a slick black suit with shiny black loafers.
And putting a very modern twist on the classic look he paired black blazer and trousers with a see-through mesh shirt and netted veil skirt.
The sportsman looked at ease on the red carpet as he tied his braided hair back into a bun for the night out.
Proving no detail is missed, he paired the look with small crucifix earrings, a diamond chain and two diamond bracelets.
Lewis joined dozens of famous friends on the red carpet including stylist Law Roach, musician Kehlani, and singer Maluma.
Other sporting stars joining him on the red carpet included American track and field sprinter Sha'Carri Richardson and Olympic fencer Miles Chamley-Watson.

Lewis also follows the model on Instagram and has been liking her racy photos, however a source told The Sun that Lewis and Camila are pals, saying: 'They've been friends for a few years — that's why she's staying at his house and wearing his shirt.'

The Met Gala is finally back after being cancelled in 2020 amid the pandemic. This year it was pushed to September from its traditional slot on the first Sunday in May.
The theme is In America: A Lexicon of Fashion and the event features a heavy-hitting contingent of celebrity co-chairs: actor Timothée Chalamet, musician Billie Eilish, poet Amanda Gorman and tennis star Naomi Osaka.
Honorary chairs for the evening will be designer Tom Ford, sponsor Instagram's Adam Mosseri, and Vogue's Anna Wintour.
At just 19, Billie will make history as the youngest ever co-chair of the prestigious event.
When the hosts were first announced, Vogue magazine said: 'Each of the Met's four co-hosts embodies the defining factor of American style: individualism.
'[They have each] developed a distinct visual language for their public personas, one that is informed by the legacy of iconic fashion made in the USA.'
The must-have accessory for all at this year's gala is a Covid-19 vaccine.
'Currently, all attendees at The Met Gala on September 13 must provide proof of full vaccination and will also be expected to wear masks indoors except when eating or drinking,' a spokesperson for The Met said last month.
This year's gala will be a more intimate affair, to be followed by a larger one on May 2, 2022. Both will launch a two-part exhibition, a survey of American fashion to be on view for almost a year.
In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, opening Sept. 18, will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the museum´s Costume Institute and 'explore a modern vocabulary of American fashion,' the spokesperson added.
Part two, In America: An Anthology of Fashion, will open in the museum's popular American Wing period rooms on May 5, 2022, and will explore American fashion, with collaborations with film directors, by 'presenting narratives that relate to the complex and layered histories of those spaces.' Both parts will close on Sept. 5, 2022.
Queen & Slim filmmaker Melina Matsoukas has been commissioned to create an open-ended film to project in the galleries, with content changing during the course of the exhibition.
The gala is a major fundraiser, providing the Costume Institute with its primary source of funding.
As always, the exhibits will be the work of star curator Andrew Bolton. Bolton has previously noted how challenging the past year had been for the fashion community.
'It's been incredibly inspiring to see how designers have responded to the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, how they've found new outlets to express their creativity and new ways to present their collections,' he said.
Bolton added that many designers had been at the vanguard of the discussion about diversity and inclusion: 'The social justice movements of last summer reinforced their commitment to these issues and also consolidated their leadership in advancing the conversation.'
In addition to Matsoukas, other confirmed collaborators from the film world include cinematographer Bradford Young, whose projects have included 'Selma' and 'When They See Us;' production designers Nathan Crowley and Shane Valentino; and Franklin Leonard, film executive and founder of The Black List, a listing of top unproduced screenplays.
