In fashion two is coincidence, and three, my dear friends is a trend. Tonight on the red carpet for the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, there were understandably many trends, but one specific one leapt out to us: Queers in Western-inspired gear. The gay yeehaw agenda is upon us.
After scooping up his first Grammy earlier in the day wearing an all white number, Lil Nas X made it back to the official Grammys red carpet in an all fuchsia look from Atelier Versace. It, of course, followed the silhouette he’s been sticking to: strong pointy shoulder, cropped body, a nice boot to anchor it. Underneath the cropped leather jacket he wore a pink body harness replete with gold buckles that match the gold studs rimming the seams of the look. Talk about a look! And what else would you expect for someone who was nominated for six awards.
Then there was Billy Porter — or Lola if ya nasty. Porter brought it in what seems to be a crystal drenched bodysuit, that also features a cropped jacket all by Baja East. The legs of the suit feature a crystal fringe that flare at the bottom, and an accompanying hat by Sarah Sokol Millinery also features fringe, all the way around it.
But if you know Billy Porter, you know there’s no way he’s walking a full red carpet with his face covered. So Sokol worked with Smooth Technology in order to make it so that the fringe would open up to show his face. Take a look for yourself!
Of course one couldn’t do a gay yeehaw post and not include one Orville Peck. Known for his penchant for fringe, masks, and cowboy gear, Peck has probably been doing this look longer than everybody else on the carpet.
He turned up in all grey with a black fringe mask, and a beautifully embroidered shirt. Of course, to top it off, a classic oversized belt buckle.
Save a horse, ride a gay cowboy — or a musician dressed as one.
