It’s official: Lil Nas X just won the 2023 Met Gala in beauty.

The “Industry Baby” rapper just hit the red carpet in head-to-toe silver body paint, topped off glitter and what appears to be hundreds of rhinestone gems.

Clad in nothing but matching silver briefs, there’s not much clothing here to comment on — that said, his look oozes with style.

Instead of your typical suit or tux, the star hit the red carpet in an intricate bejeweled mask (Eyes Wide Shut, anyone?) complemented by equally blinged-out acrylic nails.

Responsible for the Grammy winner’s dazzling look is makeup artist Pat McGrath, the mind behind Doja Cat’s similarly internet-breaking makeup look for Schiaparelli’s Couture show.
