Bad Bunny attended the 2023 GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles on Thursday, taking the stage in a minimalist approach with a twist. The singer received the Vanguard Award at this year’s ceremony, which is presented to allies who have made a significant difference in promoting the acceptance of LGBTQIA+ people and issues.
For the awards ceremony, the Latin trap and reggaeton artist wore a white button-up with intricate detailing at the waist and pleated black trousers. He accessorized with gold statement jewelry and aviator sunglasses.
Bad Bunny is known for more flamboyant fashions. At the 2019 Latin Grammy Awards he wore a mismatched pattern look with a bucket hat, sunglasses and knee pads, putting a humorous spin on event dressing. At the 2019 Billboard Latin Music Awards, he wore a seemingly Austin Powers-inspired outfit, featuring a metallic purple jacquard tuxedo with studded lapels from Gucci.
It’s been a great week for the singer, as he also became the first person on a Spanish language cover of Time magazine. For the cover, Bad Bunny wore a black structured suit with a statement flower accent adjacent to the lapel from Willy Chavarria. The look was accessorized with Veneda Carter jewelry, including two gold rings, a gold cross pendant that Bad Bunny held in view and a gold chain and a gold ring from David Yurman.
The 34th GLAAD Media Awards honored LGBTQIA+ individuals and their allies in the entertainment industry. This year’s ceremony, hosted by Margaret Cho at The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, honored Christina Aguilera, Bad Bunny and Jeremy Pope. The event will also include a New York City celebration in May, with dual sponsorships by Hyundai, Ketel One, Hulu and Delta.
