Last night, a star-studded crowd attended the LACMA Art and Film Gala in Los Angeles, where guests such as Kim Kardashian West, Salma Hayek Pinault, Lana Del Rey, Courtney Love, and more took to the red carpet dressed in their Saturday best. But no celebrity fully committed to their look more than A$AP Rocky, who shut down the step and repeat in a Gucci ensemble that was equal parts unexpected and over-the-top.
Dressed in head to toe Gucci, the rapper embraced the Italian label's quirky—and oftentimes kooky, in a good way—aesthetic, which has of course been the brainchild of its creative director, Alessandro Michele. It made for a menswear moment that few could pull off, though Rocky is known for his ability to rock—pun intended—bold fashion choices. He wore a simple black vest and trousers, but gave it a capital-F fashion spin with printed satin robe and a floral-motif scarf, which he tied ever so dramatically around his head in the style of a classic Hollywood starlet such as, say, Sophia Loren or Audrey Hepburn. (Huge sunglasses were also worn, naturally.) Fur-trimmed slippers completed the look, and complemented his robe's more luxuriously relaxed feel.
