Met Gala 2023: Lil Nas X Appears in Nothing But a Thong. 10/10 for guts and glory
Rapper and songwriter Lil Nas X doesn’t shy away from experimenting with bold looks. Met Gala 2023 is no exception. The industry baby artist rocked the red carpet wearing only a thong. Yes, you read it right. If you don’t believe then see their pictures.
As Page Six reports, the 24-year-old rapper was covered in silver body paint and glittery rhinestones, as well as exquisite pearl detailing around her neck and face. Her silver thong, which exposed her entire rear, was accessorized with a belt made of pearls.
Reacting to his Met Gala 2023 look, a netizen commented, “Nass is back.” Another wrote, “Oh my god! He steals the show.”
The nearly nude look was designed by legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath in collaboration with Dior Men, with creative direction by Nicola Formichetti and long silver nails by Temeka Jackson.
This year’s theme pays tribute to famed fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, who passed away in 2019 at age 85 — and the rapper honored his beloved cat Choupette with a feline-inspired look.
