This is the art/music collaboration of our gay dreams!
Pop Superstar of The World(tm) Lil Nas X is serving Basquiat realness in a new set of photos released today, including a shirtless selfie.
Vogue released the official images of X with his hair and wardrobe done in the style of legendary American Neo-expressionism artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. In the photos, X and Hailey Bieber are in a phone booth next to a tall Statue of Liberty, getting ready for Vogue's new Vogue World: New York event.
But Nas being Nas, he wasn't happy to just release the official photos (which look GREAT), and he decided to release a shirtless selfie of his own. In the picture, which he captioned "NASQUIAT," he's taking a shirtless selfie in the mirror while holding up a picture of Basquiat next to his own hair, which has been done to resemble the artist.
Vogue announced the new Vogue World fashion show and street fair today along with the photos of X. Vogue World: New York is described as "a first-of-a-kind event--featuring a runway show presenting our favorite looks from the fall 2022 collections, with pieces from Balenciaga, Dior, Gucci, Valentino, Burberry, Coach, Michael Kors, Brother Vellies, Bode, Conner Ives, Christopher John Rogers, Collina Strada, Matty Bovan, Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch, and many other designers."
In addition to a fashion show, the fashion mag is curating a street fair experience with limited-edition items from brands like Moda Operandi, Mytheresa, NET-A-PORTER, Nordstrom, and Ssense.
"Fashion is changing and Vogue is doing something special to celebrate it--a fashion show-meets-street fair that captures the creative spirit of our community now," Anna Wintour, global editorial director for Vogue said. "New York is the perfect place for this--a city that is as restless, as dynamic, and as revitalized as fashion is today."
The event will take place in New York City on September 12, and the event will be live-streamed on Vogue.com, the Vogue Runway app, and Twitter.
