But, for Elliot Page, it marked more than that, as it was his first red carpet appearance since he came out as transgender in December 2020.

Page took to the carpet for the momentous occasion dressed in a smart, black, Balenciaga tuxedo.

Wearing a crisp white shirt, with a large silver button at the top in place of a tie, Page also wore trainers and an oversized blazer that reached past his wrists.

The thirty-four-year-old actor added a hint of color to his monochrome look by wearing a green flower pinned on the front of his tux.

Page's green carnation flower pinned to the lapel on his tux is thought to be a symbol of queer love, Yahoo Life reports.

The wearing of a green carnation originated from the poet, Oscar Wilde who frequently wore one.

According to Oscar Wilde Tours, the green carnation became an emblem of Wild after he encouraged an actor to wear one during the opening night of his play, Lady Windermere's Fan.

The event was also Page's first ever Met Gala.
