Shawn Mendes gets ready for the Met Gala with Vogue.

Shawn Mendes rocked some gold streaks in his hair and a sleek Saint Laurent suit on the Met Gala red carpet on Monday (May 6).    

A new Vogue video goes behind-the-scenes as the pop crooner prepared for the big event, noting that it took his hair stylist Anna "one week to convince me" to add the metallic hair accents. Throughout the clip, Mendes gets excited about being seated next to Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth and Rami Malek, chats with his hometown friend Brian about how they met, and introduces his stylist Tiffany, who helped him transition over the years into his current James Dean-inspired style.    

While waiting to leave, Mendes plays guitar and FaceTimes him mom, who gives his look a stamp of approval. His sister, however, wasn't as impressed. "Why is your hair like that?" she joked. "I don’t mind it but it’s just different."   

"That's the point," the "In My Blood" singer replies.
