Bright Vachirawit is the first Thai star to attend the Met Gala

Clad in a princely ensemble custom-made by Burberry, the Thai star made his debut on the iconic steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art today

Bright Vachirawit has just made his starry debut on the Met Gala 2024 red carpet. With his appearance, the Thai heartthrob—best known for his leading roles in F4 Thailand: Boys Over Flowers2Gether: The Series, and romcom flick Forget My Ex!—is notably the first-ever Thai artist to make his appearance at the annual fundraiser event. Understandably, the landmark event is a formidable milestone for the actor, but for those well-acquainted with his global stardom in recent years, the Met can be said to have been par for the course for the rising fashion name.  

After all, the Thai actor’s initial inklings with the industry can be traced back to the summer of  2022—when Burberry first announced Vachirawit as its global ambassador. In continuing his relationship with the British fashion house, he has become a familiar face in front row at the maison’s seasonal fashion shows and is a common attendee at regional brand events, one that is no doubt attributed to his influence worldwide.

Naturally, he made his Met Gala debut fully clad in Burberry—custom-designed by Daniel Lee, certifying his station as a treasured friend of the house. For fashion’s big night, Lee outfitted him in a sharp, princely ensemble: a pleated georgette jacket embroidered with tonal bullion, contrasted against a netted, gold inner. A sleek spot of tailoring comes through his silk trousers, and the whole look is completed by a structural pair of square-toed loafers for good measure.

Delivering a look that merged contemporary polish with the British codes of the storied house, there’s no doubt that Vachirawit’s appearance on the iconic steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art was one that felt utterly cosmic. Given his undeniable status as the first Thai celebrity to grace the event, we can hold hope that more Asian faces will be welcomed to the Met crowd in time to come. This decisive match-up stands as a beacon of progress.
