Lil Nas X showed everything at the 2023 Met Gala.
The “Industry Baby” singer showed off his moves on the Met museum steps Monday night in nothing but a thong and platform boots.
The 24-year-old rapper turned himself into a stylish cat by painting his whole body silver and adding rhinestones and pearls around his neck and face.
His silver thong, which showed off his whole backside, had a pearl belt to go with it.
He didn’t look like himself with silver, pearls, and diamonds on his lips. Only his deeply lined eyes were visible.
The famous makeup artist Pat McGrath in partnership with Dior Men made the jaw-dropping look. Nicola Formichetti was in charge of the creative direction, and Temeka Jackson did the long silver nails.
His glam team was completed by YSL Beauty and Coree Moreno, who did his hair and makeup, respectively.
This year’s theme is a tribute to Karl Lagerfeld, a famous fashion designer who died in 2019 at the age of 85. The rapper’s look was based on his favorite cat Choupette.
In 2021, Lil Nas X went all in for a theme at the Met Gala by wearing a three-piece Atelier Versace suit that required him to undress in public.
His first outfit was a beaded, gold coat with a high collar and a long, flowing train.
Under the royal look was a future suit of armor in the style of C3PO, which took a team of people to show.
For all three looks, the “Montero” singer wore a pair of black boots, a set of grills, earrings, and gold accents at the corners of his eyes.
No matter what, it’s clear that he’ll keep shining.
