Sunday, June 27’s BET Awards were a star-studded affair but singer Lil Nas X stole much of the limelight with his red carpet dress and performance.
The rapper donned two memorable outfits on the star-studded red carpet and left the fans awe-struck.
The 22-year-old singer also set the stage on fire with his steaming performance leaving many fans shocked at the end.
Who made Lil Nas X’s BET Awards dress?
The singer’s blue and white cinderella-Esque gown was created by Italian designer and artist Andrea Grossi.
The dressmaker is a young graduate from Polimoda Fashion Institute in Florence. He has over 11,000 followers on Instagram and is known for his out of the box designs, which he also presents at fashion shows.
The dress that Andrea created for Lil Nas had a voluminous silhouette and was a part of the designer’s collection called “Welcome to DeusLand.” However, the princess-like dress is much more than a red carpet look.
If one zooms into its graphics, they can understand that it’s meant to question our society’s customs and politics. It’s also been worn by musician David Blank when he was featured in magazines.
The rapper’s full look with this dress involved a zippered corset, a jacket, as well as white suspenders. The pieces have reportedly been crafted through sustainable techniques.
However, Lil Nas X channelled two different moods with his outfits on the red carpet during his BET 2021 awards appearance. The second saw him donned in an extravagant white floral pantsuit.
Singer’s performance explored
Aside from his statement-making outfits, fans are swooning over the Montero singer’s performance.
The singer pushed the envelope of his steamy erotic performances even further during Sunday night’s performance. He dressed in an Egyptian themed outfit and ended his performance of his mega-hit Montero with a long steaming kiss with one of his male dancers.
The performance seemed like a perfect end for Pride week and pretty much for the pride month too.
Twitter reacts to singer’s outfits and performance
The response to Lil Nas X’s BET performance as well as outfits was largely positive.
Talking about it one user wrote, “lil nas x is about to shake the table & give us thee queerest most satanic performance BET has ever seen on a sunday! & during pride month! the homophobes are going to be shook af & i can’t wait! #betawards”
A second user had a slightly different take on it. They said, “lil nas x larping as pharaoh at the bet awards and ending the performance by making out with one of the dancers was incredible, however he neglected to provide any meaningful perspective on the whereabouts of punt, one of egypt’s main tradin- [I am pushed down a flight of stairs]”
Talking about the singer’s outfit a third user said, “Lil Nas X is wearing a dress with a Akatsuki themed Provencal inspired print on it to the BET awards?! I am losing my mind I am so happy.”
