Adam Rippon Just Burned Up the Oscars Red Carpet in a Leather Harness
Adam Rippon just served up yet another reason for us to love him. We actually didn’t need one because we’re already head over heels for the out Olympic athlete, but here we are adding one more bullet point to the long list of things that make him so freaking fabulous. The Bronze medal winning figure skater made his Oscars 2018 debut in a leather harness! The Adam Rippon Oscars look was fierce, so let’s break it down for you.
The U.S. figure skater arrived at the 90th Academy Awards wearing a deconstructed Moschino tuxedo designed by Jeremy Scott with a black leather harness underneath. This is how a famous, gay stylish man should dress in 2018.
As Hornet’s own Ricardo Perelta says, this is what you wear, boys, “when you have the Oscar parties at 8:00 and a leather party at the Eagle at 11:00.”
His Olympic figure skater bestie and homo honey Mirai Nagasu was, of course, by his side.
Another Olympian who was also invited to the big night was free skier Gus Kenworthy. He also looked dapper on his way to the Oscars red carpet. He shared a photo with his partner Matthew Wilkas with the caption “We’ll be out late, don’t wait up.”

While Kenworthy looked fab, the night truly belongs to Rippon. The internet freaked out over the Adam Rippon Oscars look.
Probably the brightest endorsement came from Tyra Banks who loved the Adam Rippon Oscars look. She tweeted: “Hoe, but make it fashion @Adaripp! #Oscars #YouAreFierce”
Michael Cuby said, “Adam Rippon wearing a harness to the #Oscars is the future we deserve.”
Chris Rovzar added: “Adam Rippon is wearing a Jeremy Scott harness to the Oscars. Somewhere in heaven, Oscar Wilde, Harvey Milk, James Baldwin, and Michelangelo just shared a margarita.”
Another added: “Queen @Adaripp is so benevolent that he went ahead and won best dressed at the #oscars tonight so no one else would have to fight over it. #Adamrippon.”
