Who is ‘Creative Dictator’ Fredrik Robertsson, Doppelganger of Jared Leto at the 2022 Met Gala

WeCrashed star Jared Leto was the most sought after celeb at this year’s Met Gala. However, it was his doppelgangers that stole all the stardom. One of them was the Swedish fashion icon Fredrik Robertsson, who lived the theme of “Gilded Glamour” to the fullest. Read on to know more about Fredrik.

Who is Fredrik Robertsson?

Fredrik Robertsson is a Swedish native who describes himself as a “creative director” and “fashion addict” on Instagram. The 36-year-old Stockholm native was raised in Sweden, Norway and Singapore.

Fredrik started his career in public relations before starting his firm. However, he sold his 10-year-old business in 2019. Talking about his early life and his interest in fashion, he told the Vogue in 2019,  “People in general dress pretty cool, but are lacking uniqueness.”

As per a 2019 Vogue profile, Robertsson revealed that his “head-turning” style caught the eye of certain editors at the magazine. The story defined Robertsson as “the editor-in-chief of Boy magazine”. He is also a member of the philanthropic board that supports LGBTQ activists and organizations globally.

Fredrik is known for flaunting his gorgeous attire at star-studded events to his 30.6k followers on Instagram. A week back, Fredrik wore an incredible haute couture pink opera cape by Maison Valentino at the opening of the Italian Pavilion.

Fredrik also gained attention with the custom look of the Pope. He took to Instagram to flaunt the classic attire and wrote, “The Pope of Fashion has arrived in Venice for the Biennale and I am so honoured to be wearing a custom look by the amazing @magedboutanos @tanousmagedbou @nourboutanouscouture who also makes spectacular pieces for people like the actual Pope. ⛪️ “

Fredrik’s 2022 Met Gala Look

The editor-in-chief of Boy Magazine was mistaken as Jared Leto for his stunning look at the 2022 Met Gala. Fredrik sported a metallic-looking haute couture outfit created by Iris van Herpen. After walking the red carpet, Robertsson shared photos of the custom look on Instagram and wrote:

“I can’t believe this is me.”Wearing diamonds by @boucheron and having my love @j_hellstrom and the team at @bjornaxen do my hair, @lindahallberg my incredible makeup, @fridaselkirk my nails and my partner in crime @ea_czyz capture it all. It feels like a dream and I never want to wake up.”

Shortly after his arrival, Getty images incorrectly identified the “Bird Man” as Leto, a mistake that was corrected later by both viewers and reporters. New York Times fashion director Venessa Friedman tweeted, “OK – that birdman in Iris Van Herpen is NOT Jared Leto. It is Fredrik Robertsson. Apologies.”

Two More Jareds! Who’s the Real one?

The confusion grew further when Jared Leto entered the 2022 Met Gala event with another doppelganger who was his creative director Alessandro Michele. Everyone’s head was spinning after they mistook Fredrik for Jared and then this!

The real Jared Leto was dressed in Gucci with his creative director Alessandro Michele who copied the same look. The two were wearing the same hair and it looked as if they were mirror images of each other.  To clear your confusion, Jared Leto is on the right in the aforementioned image while the Italian designer Alessandro is on the left. But tell me, what do you think about our “Birdman”?
