Lil Nas X appeared on the red carpet, the rapper wore a Balmain look, which was inspired by the fashion house’s iconic baroque embroidered dress that debuted 10 years ago, and which Kim Kardashian famously wore.
Lil Nas X had blue eyeshadow to complement the ensemble’s pearl-encrusted detailing and butterfly images on his jacket’s chest, sleeves, and back panel.
“The Balmain Atelier crafted a new butterfly centerpiece, reflecting the key symbol and central message of the Montero album,” according to the brand’s Instagram post.

To perform a medley of his songs solo and with rapper Jack Harlow, Lil Nas X was styled again in looks by Balmain.
He started out in a sparkling black cape and trousers before disrobing to reveal a sheer crystal-adorned asymmetrical crop top. This also showed off the crystal side detailing down his pants.
The singer’s last costume change was a michael jackson and marching band-style uniform inspired design
