The fashion industry elite descended upon New York this week for the Met Gala, and the best-dressed of them all was, hands down, Gucci's Alessandro Michele

On Wednesday evening, the creative director hosted a screening of "Odyssey" in a look that could best be described as Pacific Northwest-meets-Gucci. His shirt and pants, while probably from a high-end brand, could have easily been plucked from the Goodwill store on University Way in Seattle — I say this with the utmost admiration, not belittlement — or from a secondhand store around the city. I also want to applaud him for completing the look with a Gucci silk bomber jacket and pink furry hat. That, dear readers, is personal style. 

Then on Thursday night, in celebration of Art Week, Michele stopped by Dover Street Market, where photographer Ari Marcopoulos was present to sign copies of his book "Epiphany." He attended the event in a colorful striped sweater and a burgundy jacket with an embroidered flower and dog. (Evidence below.) Needless to say, it was one of the best looks from this week.

And now that I've got that out of my system, click through the gallery for the rest of this week's best-dressed, including Elizabeth Olsen and Florence Welch. (And in case you missed it, catch up on all of the looks from the 2016 Met Gala and the Duchess of Cambridge's outfits from this week.)
