Olympian Adam Rippon's Oscar Tux And Harness Are Gold Medal-Worthy
Olympian Adam Rippon knows how to ensure all eyes are on him.
He completed his look with a bow tie and black loafers, essentially stealing the show before the show even started.
“Dressed to impress in @moschino,” the bronze medalist wrote on Instagram a few days before the ceremony. “Getting ready for the Oscars with @accessonline! Huge thank you to the brill, beautiful, and kind @itsjeremyscott ♂️
Rippon attended the 90th Academy Awards ceremony with his friend and fellow figure skater Mirai Nagasu who wowed in a gorgeous gown from Tadashi Shoji.
“I’m so excited. I can’t wait to walk the red carpet with Mirai. We are just going to have a blast,” Rippon told Access Online on Thursday. Nagasu said she can “totally handle a whole night with Adam.”
Nagasu carried her bronze medal in her clutch, and even pulled it out on the red carpet.

People loved Nagasu’s medal moment, but even more were obsessed with Rippon’s harness.
Tyra Banks called the look “Hoe, but make it fashion” on Twitter:

The political importance of @Adaripp is that he never gives anyone the safety of just enjoying his beauty or artistry without being reminded he has sex with men in the butt. Bitch has rejected the situational closet, and he is a hero.
