Nick Cannon stepped out in eclectic fashion for the 2021 BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta, Georgia’s Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center this weekend.
The “Masked Singer” host made a holiday-ready statement in a red, green and white outfit—complete with ornament-worthy shine. Dressed as his alter ego Murda Count Harlem, Cannon wore a metallic gold embossed vest with red and white-striped silk shorts. The rapper paired the Christmas-worthy set with a white fur coat, as well as plenty of bling—including a diamond pendant necklace, belt and red glasses lined in crystals. His look was accessorized with a stack of white foam cups.
For footwear, Cannon wore an equally eclectic pair of shoes; though, to his credit, they are renowned for their comfort. The former “America’s Got Talent” host continued his look’s holiday theme with two of Crocs’ foam clogs—the left from a “Black/Lime Punch” tie-dye pair, the right from a “Hot Pepper” red pair. Both were covered in an assortment of Jibbitz rubber charms, which included shapes like dollar signs, lips and crystals. Cannon paired the mismatched clogs with mismatched Christmas-themed socks, as well.
Clogs and comfort-forward footwear, including chunky-soled “ugly” sandals, have been trending this year. Crocs, in particular, have grown in popularity from their textured, soft soles and breathable ventilated holes. Cannon isn’t the only star to wear them this year; others like Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Kate Middleton have also been spotted in colorful pairs.
Cannon’s shoe style is varied. The rapper is known for wearing colorful oxfords and dress shoes, paired with equally colorful suits. However, in recent years, his look has taken an edgier route, featuring pieces like vests, joggers and layered jewelry. These have been paired with an array of quirky footwear, including designer logo-printed Vans sneakers, Jimmy Choo x Timberland’s crystal-covered boots and more.
The 2021 BET Hip Hop Awards will air on BET on Tuesday, Oct. 5 at 9 p.m.
