Lil Nas X Decks Out in a 1960s-Inspired Snakeskin Leather Suit for the 2020 Billboard Music Awards

Lil Nas X just nabbed his first Billboard Music Award of the night and did so with style and flair.

The “Old Town Road” musician accepted the award for the Top Hot 100 Song of the year, taking the stage from a safe distance to give his speech. As he walked across the Dolby Theatre mainstage, the rapper showed off his unmissable 1960s-inspired Gucci ensemble.

The outfit included a full snakeskin leather suit complete with pink contrasting lapels and a tie-neck shirt. His shades and spike hoop earrings also came from Gucci.

The final touch of the branded look came in the form of black leather boots; the ankle-height pair featured an almond-shape toe and a patent sheen with an interlocking double G signature accent. Similar designs retail for $980 on Gucci’s website.
