Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon killed the Oscars red carpet when he wore that Jeremy Scott leather harness. Of course, not everybody thought so. The BBC called the outfit “unconventional” and thought it was a nod to Fifty Shades of Grey… Yikes.
Rippon responded with a tweet in which he said he felt “cool AF” in that harness. You tell ‘em.
I think fashion is all about self expression and I chose to wear what I wore on the red carpet because I felt cool AF. Everyone should take risks, be bold, and not give a . It’s LOTS of fun. Huge thanks to my team for dressing me and make me feel like a sexy MF. pic.twitter.com/gimDFyJPYd

In the words of Adam Rippon, Adam Rippon is "a glamazon bitch ready for the runway." With that harness he was definitely ready for the runway, but was the runway ready for him?
To all those who tweet at me saying that they “hope I fail”, I have failed many times many times in my life. But more importantly, I’ve learned from every setback, proudly own up to my mistakes, grown from disappointments, and now I’m a glamazon bitch ready for the runway.
