Lil Nas X made a commanding entrance on the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday in Newark, N.J. The “Montero” artist, who received seven nominations alongside Kendrick Lamar and Jack Harlow, wore a striking look by Harris Reed.
His ensemble featured a feathery, tiered skirt with matching headwear, and shimmering pants from Reed’s “60 Years a Queen” Fluid Demi Couture collection, which debuted last February at London Fashion Week. His accessories included silver earrings, a bracelet and rings.
Reed’s conceptualizations have been worn by Beyoncé, Iman and more. Beyoncé wore a number of custom pieces from the line on the cover of British Vogue in June, including a feathered headpiece in collaboration with Vivienne H. Lake accompanied by a black turtleneck Alaïa dress and heeled boots; the looks were styled by Marni Senofonte.
At last year’s MTV VMAs, Lil Nas X wore an off-the-shoulder lavender Versace gown with crystal embellishments. Earlier this week, Lil Nas X was revealed as YSL Beauty’s new ambassador alongside the latest campaign.
The MTV Video Music Awards ceremony took place live from the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., with hosts Nicki Minaj, LL Cool J and Jack Harlow. Minaj was presented with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The Red Hot Chili Peppers received the Global Icon Award. The event’s entertainment lineup included Blackpink, Anitta, Panic! At the Disco, Snoop Dogg with Eminem and more.
