Pedro Pascal, or Internet’s “Daddy,” made quite the stunning red carpet entry at the 2023 Met Gala. While many celebrities came with their brand of shock value, like Lil Nas X flashing a bare bum with only body paint, and Doja Cat and Jared Leto deciding to bring Choupette to life, all Pascal did was flash an “sl–ty little knee.” Fans are a puddle of hot and bothered goo, and Pedro Pascal is now a fresh set of memes. Go on, laugh…
Pedro Pascal Rocked A Red Hot Valentino Short Suit
Frankly, we doubt another man could have carried this look so well. Technically, it’s “wrong” on so many levels if fashion magazines and their “rules” ate to be believed. The red shirt, the red coat layering, the pairing of black and red, a tie with shorts, and heeled patent boots are often fashion no-nos. But somehow, Pascal made it all work.
Pascal’s Valentino outfit featured a red double wool oversized coat with a scarf and a red poplin oversized shirt that went over black wool shorts. It also had a black silk faille tie with gold metal V, paired with black socks and black patent combat boots with heels.
“The Last of Us” star accessorized his look with multiple gold rings that complemented his slicked-back hair, a scruffy unshaved look, and trademark naughty grin.
Somehow, Pascal made this look work for him even though the theme of the Met Gala was “In honor of Karl,” as in fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld. The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton says he hoped the celebrity guests would celebrate “the spirit of Karl, and hopefully, everyone will come out in vintage Chanel, vintage Fendi, vintage Chloé.”
That’s so not what Pascal did!

Twitter Memes Abound About Pascal’s “Sl–ty Little Knee.”
Pascal is nothing if adventurous with this IDGAF look, and while he’s been around in the industry for a long time, it’s only recently that he’s become hot shakes as Internet’s daddy.
Here’s what you missed!

But now, it’s about daddy’s “sl–ty little knee.” Given that Pascal rocked the Valentino look just about as coolly as he wears a t-shirt and jeans, with ultimate confidence and a megawatt smile, it’s no wonder that Twitter is hot under the collar about Pascal. Again!

Fan Reactions On The Outfit Are All Over The Place
Predictably, fans are loving it. Other than the reference to his knee, they loved his mafioso-meets-rockstar look and left several comments to celebrate their “daddy!”
“GOSH I FORGOT HOW TO BREATHE”
“The shorts ARE it, though. I love our queer, stylish papi.”
“He ate harder then a lot of people let’s be honest.”
“The hottest daddy in the galaxy!!”
“Hear me out! Little red riding hood with guns, cocaine, maybe a few dead hookers and we bring back Pablo.”
Not everyone was a fan of the look; many felt the shorts were an underfill.
“Nice knees! However, the fire that stylist….”
“Everything but the shorts 😭”
“why’s everyone being like, omg, he looks so good… are we seeing the same thing?”
“OK, look, I love Pedro 😭🥰🥰🥰 don’t get me wrong. I love him so much, but I need to speak to whoever styled him because this is foul. There could’ve been millions of other looks that would’ve gone on theme his stylist f–ked up.”
For some other fans, the hate came from very different reasons!
“That looks so Nazi… I instantly lost my sexual Impulses and became a nun! Please return to hot male again!”
“Why does the fashion world need to feminise men?”
Feminine, he’s NOT!
