Lil Nas X hits the purple carpet with a pet pockets and platforms – so yeah, equipment make the look
at WSJ magazineThere were glances at Monday night’s Innovators of the Year Awards, and then there was Lil Nas X, who arrived in a bespoke black and white Thom Browne ensemble with a leather puppy bag in tow. Selected by WSJ magazine To honor musical innovation as a November cover star, we don’t want to acknowledge the superstar’s many fashion contributions – and when we talk about last night specifically, we need to look again at this bag and those Rick Owens shoes.
As a fashion pioneer, Lil Nas X’s looks always give us something to think about – and they don’t have to come with gold-plated armor or a cloak to inspire us. In this case, it’s a less-is-more clothing lesson, all with some badass accessories. The crisp white button-down and black trousers with a pleated black skirt and an artfully layered coat attract everyone’s attention with their subtlety, everything about the fit and the proportions. Then, as if to say, “I’m here to have fun too,” Lil Nas X tossed on some clear-heeled Rick Owens platforms and a doggie wallet that happens to be a perfect prop for photos – not to mention of which a great way to show off a fresh manicure and handful of silver rings. Which of course he did. See the look in full length here because it deserves to be seen.
