Tayla Parx Brings Super Mario Brothers Cosplay to Grammy Awards Red Carpet in Spiked Bowser Outfit

Tayla Parx didn’t go unnoticed at the 2022 Grammys last night in Las Vegas. Shunning the typical evening gown for cosplay, the singer-songwriter hit the red carpet in a spiky green outfit and yellow platform boots with green spikes.

Styled by Orchid Satellite and Elias Martian, the Grammy-nominated artist wore a custom look by avant-garde designer BCalla, who has dressed other stars like Doja Cat, Lizzo, Azealia Banks and Lady Gaga.

According to her Instagram, the 28-year-old — who has written for the likes of Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber — aimed to emulate the iconic Super Mario Bros. character Bowser. Parx’s long braid even had a spiked ball at the end.
