Hamilton had previously attended the Paris Fashion Week in 2019. The 7-time world champion was taken aback by the entire experience. When asked if these activities take his mind away from his pursuits in Formula One, he replied,

“I get a lot of energy from doing these different things. I find it stimulating, and you can see my results have shown that in the past.”

The Mercedes driver considered skipping the Met Gala this year

Lewis Hamilton‘s appearance at the Met Gala was in question, as he was involved in a horrific crash a day prior to the event. Hamilton had crashed with title rival Max Verstappen in Monza as the Red Bull’s tire went over the head of Lewis. Hamilton mentioned he considered skipping the event.

I said to one of my people, ‘maybe I shouldn’t go’. They replied that would be very sad for those designers, but that I’m sure they will understand. That’s when I decided I really didn’t want to have to cancel on them,” said Lewis.

The appearance was a successful venture for the Mercedes driver. He stood with all the designers of color in solidarity and brought their work into the limelight.
