We’d like to officially thank Lil Nas X for identifying a huge chrome hole in our wardrobes. Like a character straight out of his whimsical-packed music video, the “Montero” singer took the stage at iHeartRadio’s Jingle Ball 2021 on November 30 in a head-to-toe silver outfit custom-designed by Adolfo Sanchez. The look, consisting of a metallic kilt and a cropped puffer jacket, was an artistic assemblage of chrome panels, leather straps and buckles that was essentially designed to complement the next protagonist of the dystopian film.
âIt was so fun to create and bring to life. @Lilnasx is so playful with fashion that I had a great time creating all of these looks,â Adolfo captioned. Instagram post on December 1. “Thank you to my amazing team for all the endless hours and late nights that made this possible. ðð¼â¤ï¸â¨.”
With such an icy look, Adolfo couldn’t forget the accessories, adorning the kilt with an oversized exterior pocket and dressing the sleeves cut out with buckles along the arms to match the crisscross clasp on Lil Nas X’s bare chest. silver manicure, the matching grid, and the diamond butterfly earrings definitely gave us a taste for all that sparkles, but our favorite part of the outfit had to be the silver combat boots with built-in socks (like this ‘is convenient !).
As one great underwater robot once said, âEverything’s chrome in the future,â and Lil Nas X is certainly living his 39th century dream. Check out her radiant look from all angles – on stage and on the red carpet – here.
