True to form, Lil Nas X ruffled all the right fashion feathers with this look.

The 23-year-old "Call Me By Your Name" singer showed up to the Christian Cowan show at New York Fashion Week in an outfit so dazzling it looked ready for the Vegas stage.

For his glam front row cameo, the Grammy-winning artist wore a baby pink satin suit with nothing underneath except his chiseled abs. He accessorized with platform disco ball-inspired heeled boots for some bling as well as bedazzled eye makeup to give the look an extra oomph.

However, what really made the ensemble stand out was the showgirl-inspired feather headpiece the rapper wore. Nas accompanied his satin suit with a light pink headpiece that looked just about as big as him, featuring a bedazzled frame that kept the piece secure, plus dozens of larger-than-life pink ostrich and peacock feathers. The show-stopping headgear was also modeled on the runway in various colorways.
