Who: A$AP Rocky

The outfit he's wearing: Black tailored suit with a printed satin robe, silk floral headscarf, oversized shades, and brown fur loafers — all Gucci.

Location: LACMA Art+Film Gala, Los Angeles

Why it works: Not many humans would be brave enough step on to the red carpet looking like the result of a three-way between Hugh Hefner, Whitney Houston circa The Bodyguard, and your grandma — and still pull it off. But then, A$AP Rocky is not your average human.

Rocky is known for championing bold, boundary-pushing looks on the regular — whether dressing like a lifeguard or head-to-toe in mosh pit prints. The reason it works? Because he doesn't care about adhering to any kind of fashion or, in this particular case, gender norms.

"I just wanted to show off my baboushka today, honestly," Rocky said on the red carpet. "I thought it was so immaculate. And I feel like I look so handsome right now with the shades on. I'm just encouraging all guys to wear baboushka's from here on out. Silk gang, silk city." Amen.

Editor's Notes: While this might be the first time Rocky's rocked that old lady flex, it's certainly not the first time he's switched up his garm game and worn womenswear. On previous occasions, he has stepped out in the "WE SHOULD ALL BE FEMINISTS" Dior tee and Balenciaga's inflatable jacket.

His Gucci drip, however, is certainly the boldest yet in terms of curb-stomping gender expectations. And honestly, as silly as the overall vibe might be perceived, the principle of it is refreshing.
