WATCH: Lil Nas X’s pink leather harness look took 700 hours to make

The ratings for the 2020 Grammys may have been at an all-time low, but some of the red carpet fashion was at an all-time high.

Leading the pack of contenders for ‘best dressed’ was Lil Nas X, who also walked away from the ceremony with two Grammy statues for his 2019 hit “Old Town Road.”

His head-to-toe Versace pink leather harness cowboy ensemble left fans gobsmacked, and now the fashion house has offered a brief peek at how the garments were constructed.

Takeaway? Very carefully and very slowly.

“Masterfully constructed,” the brand wrote on Twitter, “#LilNasX’s fuchsia look is entirely crafted from supple leather. Taking 700 hours to complete, the leather is hand-studded with heritage hardware accents.”


The outfit was just one of several Lil Nas X showcased throughout the night, with a few more arriving on stage during his performance of “Old Town Road.”
