Kid Cudi is quickly cementing his name in the fashion world, having stolen the show at the CFDA awards in the fall, so it came as no surprise to see him making Kenzo history Monday night at the Met Gala.
The rapper and actor wore a blue look that marked new Kenzo designer Nigo’s first time designing for the Met, and the first custom red carpet design from Kenzo by Nigo. The look was inspired by Kenzo Takada’s fall 1984 archive collection. It featured an Olympic blue wool cape with 1988 Archive Poppy print silk lining, golden metal Boke Flower pins and chain, Olympic blue grain-de-poudre Spencer jacket with Duchess satin insert worn with matching slit pants, white poplin cotton ruffle shirt with a pleated Boke Flower bib, black satin bow tie, black smooth leather Boke Flower belt and calf leather Kenzo Smile boots.
