The entrepreneur, 50, looked dapper in a classic black tailcoat tuxedo for the ‘Gilded Glamour and White Tie’-themed night.

However, it was his 74-year-old mother who turned heads in a crimson velvet Dior gown and layered Chopard jewellery.

In light of their glamorous mother-son night out, people took to social media in their droves to brand the pair 'classy as ever' and claimed Maye was the 'best-dressed'.

“@elonmusk and his mom @mayemusk at Met Gala 2022. You are looking amazing,” another wrote.

However, this isn't the first time the pair attended the gala together. Maye and Elon attended 2016’s event, when the theme was Manus x Machina.

Maye is no stranger to fashion; she is in fact a former Miss South Africa and has been an in-demand model since she was 15.

In 2010, she posed nude on the cover of a health issue of Time magazine, and in 2011 she posed as an ageing pregnant woman on the cover of New York. She is also the face of cosmetics company CoverGirl.

Aside from her modelling career, she is a revered nutritionist and has written three books.

Speaking to host Lala Anthony, Musk said: "My goal, assuming everything gets done, is to make Twitter as inclusive as possible and to have as broad a swathe of people on Twitter as possible.

“And that it is entertaining and funny and they have as much fun as possible.”

Elon's offer to take over Twitter was announced on 25 April.
