There’s been quite a bit of chatter about that leather harness Adam Rippon wore to the Academy Awards on Sunday.
In a tweet posted yesterday, Adam said he “felt cool AF” and like a “sexy MF” in his leather harness. Not only that, but he doesn’t “give a sh*t” what his haters have to say about it:
I think fashion is all about self-expression and I chose to wear what I wore on the red carpet because I felt cool AF. Everyone should take risks, be bold, and not give a [shit]. It’s LOTS of fun. Huge thanks to my team for dressing me and make me feel like a sexy MF.

There’s one person who couldn’t agree more: Cher… who had her own major fashion moment at the 1986 Oscars which included a flamboyant feathered headpiece that is still remembered today.
In response to Adam’s tweet, the diva/goddess/icon wrote:

Personally, we loved Adam’s look. And so did a lot of other people (including Tyra Banks):

It’s even inspired at least one other man to wear his own leather harness to work this morning:
But perhaps most importantly, it got the attention of Adam’s crush Shawn Mendes:
