Lil Nas X soared above the rest at Christian Cowan’s fall 2023 runway show at New York Fashion Week last night. The singer was part of a star-studded front row for the occasion alongside stars including Sam Smith, Bella Thorne, Teyana Taylor and Orville Peck.
On Tuesday, the “Star Walkin'” singer arrived to the occasion in New York City for the show, taking in Cowan’s latest glamorous designs in a head-to-toe look from the runway. His outfit featured a light purple silk suit, complete with a sharp-lapeled blazer. Layered atop was a massive light pink feathered headpiece with a sparkling curved crystal base — an accessory so tall, in fact, that Lil Nas X had to be seated in the second row during the show itself.
When it came to footwear, Lil Nas X’s outfit was finished with a towering set of platform boots. His $320 Kitten Disco style, hailing from queer-focused shoe brand Syro, featured ankle-high canvas uppers with thick 4-inch platform soles, tapered toes and 6-inch block heels. All were coated in shining silver metallic fringe, giving the musician a soaring height boost that was disco-worthy, indeed.
