Elliot Page's Green-Rose Boutonnière at the Met Gala What Does It Mean?

Elliot Page’s Green-Rose Boutonnière at the Met Gala: What Does It Mean?

At the Met Gala on Monday, Elliot Page exhibited effortless cool. For his first-ever appearance at the prestigious fashion event, the actor wore a black Balenciaga suit and chunky Balenciaga sneakers. His boutonnière, on the other hand, drew our attention and added a touch of symbolism to the otherwise understated ensemble.

The green rose pinned to Elliot’s suit has been widely interpreted as an Oscar Wilde reference. On the opening night of his 1892 comedy Lady Windermere’s Fan, the poet and playwright famously had one of his actors wear a green carnation. Several of his friends were also wearing green carnations on their lapels. Because Oscar was widely assumed to be gay and frequently used gayness as a theme in his work, the green carnation has become a symbol for gay men and queerness in general.

Elliot, who publicly came out as transgender in December 2020, used the high-profile appearance to make a statement. Elliot later admitted to struggling with red carpet dressing in an interview with Time a few months later. He explained, “I just never recognized myself,” “For a long time I could not even look at a photo of myself.”
