Lil Nas XThe time has come! The rapper, 23, hit the red carpet at the 38th annual Video Music Awards at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, wearing a statement-making ensemble that’s fresh off the runway.

The performer, who’s up for seven nominations at this year’s awards show, debuted a skin-baring ensemble from British American fashion designer Harris Reed.

“It is heavy and it is Harris Reed,” the “Montero” rapper stated on the red carpet. Bravo for making it look effortless!

The outfit comprised a tiered feathered skirt worn over black sparkly bell bottoms and a statement-making — and height-defying — spherical headpiece.

If the head-turn-worthy ‘fit looks familiar, that’s likely because it’s Look 8 from the designer’s Fall 2022 Ready-to-Wear collection.

Or, the headpiece might remind you of the similar-looking headpiece Beyoncé wore on the July cover of British Vogue.

Queen Bey’s headpiece was made from peacock feathers, so it’s likely that Lil Nax X’s is, too.

Per the outlet, they were “leftovers from the fantastical headpiece Reed painstakingly made for Iman to wear to the Met Gala 2021.”

The model, too, debuted the majestic hairpiece, proving it’s not-so-quietly becoming a red carpet mainstay.

Lil Nas X is no stranger to fashion history on the red carpet. He attended the VMAs last year wearing a hybrid suit-dress by Atelier Versace, embellished with sequins and gemstones.

The performer’s been making major headlines recently — especially when it comes to pushing boundaries. And we’re not just talking fashion. The performer was proclaimed the newest YSL Beauty ambassador on Friday, 26 August.

In an Instagram post shared with his 12.4 million Instagram followers, he revealed he doesn’t “know what the word [ambassador] means yet,” but he feels “very accomplished.”
