When attending your first Met Gala ball, it’s best to make the most of your night. In addition to wearing an eye-catching ensemble, one wants to take as many celebrity selfies as possible. Clearly, Lil Nas X got the memo, because he hit the carpet in a regal golden velvet Versace robe, stripped off to reveal a golden suit of armor, which he then peeled away to reveal a body-hugging gold-embellished black bodysuit.
But he didn’t just bring three outfit changes. He also brought the glitter to the star-studded fashion event by posing with some new and old friends for a series of glamorous snaps. He was all smiles posing with Frank Ocean, who showed up with green hair and a cute robotic baby doll in tow. He also posted an all-star snap in which he pointed at the camera while cramming into frame with Pete Davidson, Lil Uzi Vert, Jack Harlow and Erykah Badu.
He also got a pic with Dixie D’Amelio and Addison Rae, and a cute one with Timothée Chalamet. But perhaps the get of the night was a shot with the ultra-glam Billie Eilish, who lolled out her tongue as if about to lick the “Industry Baby” artist’s armor in a steamy shot.
Though it’s been fun for the artist in the past days — from his MTV Video Music Awards wins and getting dressed up for the Met Gala — Lil Nas is still gearing up to drop his eagerly anticipated debut, Montero, on Friday (Sept. 17).
