Post Malone Goes Bold in Hot Pink for Times Square New Year’s Eve Performance Alongside BTS

Post Malone and BTS showed off very different takes on performance style — and New Year’s dressing — as they performed in New York’s Times Square on Dec. 31.

The rapper, whose real name is Austin Post,  wore a custom pink suit created by Cathy Hahn, who also serves as his wardrobe stylist. The bold look had a metallic finish, with embellishment throughout and “2020” written in crystals on the back of his jacket. Western boots and a B.B. Simons belt completed the look.

Going into 2020, hot pink is a trending color, having appeared in the spring ’20 collections of brands like Dries Van Noten, Off-White and Versace. It has also been a recent choice for A-listers on the red carpet, among them Dua Lipa, Angela Bassett and Mandy Moore.

While Post went bold with his look, BTS opted for a never-fail colorway: black. The K-pop septet, which consists of members Jungkook, RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, V and Jimin, danced into the new year wearing black boots and skinny black pants.
