Lil Nas X took shirtless suiting back to the red carpet for the 2023 Pre-Grammy Gala. The event honored Julie Greenwald and Craig Kallman for their commitments to music, and included performances by Lizzo, Latto, Maneskin and Jennifer Hudson.
Lil Nas X hit the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills on Saturday night, wearing a pink and black suit from Moschino over black briefs. The Jeremy Scott-designed blazer and trousers featured a black illustrated print that mimicked vintage drawings, which stylist Hodo Musa layered sans shirt for a sleek effect. Lil Nas X’s outfit was finished with a gleaming diamond necklace, set with bejeweled lettering that spelled out “Montero.”
When it came to footwear, Lil Nas X laced into a pair of black Steve Madden boots to finish his outfit. The set included glossy patent uppers with rounded toes and lace-up fronts, accentuated with stacked ridged soles for a grungy finish. The set added a subversive edge to the “Industry Baby” musician’s outfit, while also providing him with a faint height boost for the formal occasion.
