In case viewers were curious how Canadian cutie Shawn Mendes got ready for the fashion event of the year on the first Monday in May, here is a behind-the-scenes look at how the singer prepared for this year’s Met Gala.
The “Lost in Japan” singer was one of the influential celebrities present at the star-studded Met Gala 2019 event in New York on Monday. And Vogue has released a special behind-the-scenes video titled, “Shawn Mendes Gets Dressed for the Met Gala”.
The video starts with Mendes, 20, preparing to take a shower. “So this is going to be the part of the episode where I shower,” Mendes tells the camera before opening the shower door. “If you want to come on in here, I’ll show you how I shower.”
First is the hair. The Canadian singer-songwriter talks about how his dad is the “cooler Mendes” and reveals his brief interest in photography, all while having his hair done. Mendes also reveals he would be sitting with Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth and Rami Malek at the gala.
Later in the video, Mendes stands in his boxer briefs while picking out rings and his Saint Laurent wardrobe. After getting dressed, Mendes strums his guitar and explains how his mom has helped his creative process.
“I missed that. My heart used to pound when I would write a song in my room and go down and sing it for her. She’s so truthful, she’d be like ‘I don’t like it.’ Which is what I need,” he says. The cameras even caught Mendes talking with his mom and sister on FaceTime while getting ready for the big night.
