Avril Lavigne Re-Creates Debut Album Cover 20 Years Later in Goth-Chic Outfit & Boots

Avril Lavigne had a lot to celebrate on Tuesday.

The “Complicated” singer attended Machine Gun Kelly’s after-party following his sold out concert at Madison Square Garden in NYC. Lavigne opened the concert with popular songs like “Girlfriend.” Following the concert, MGK hosted a celebration at Catch Steakhouse.

To the party, Lavigne wore a blush pink corset top with black detailing and black spaghetti straps. She paired the lingerie top with mid-rise black leather pants. She finished her look with a pair of black leather boots. The boots featured a hefty platform sole that added at least 2 inches to Lavigne’s frame. She was joined by fiancé, Mod Sun. He wore a graphic tee with a yellow flannel on top. He added light was jeans and white high-top sneakers to the outfit.

Lavigne also made a pit stop to an important part of the city. She went to Canal Street, where she shot the cover for her debut album “Let Go” 20 years ago. She re-created her cover art in a TikTok video, sporting a similar outfit and pose on the same corner.
