Steve Lacy Grammy Awards 2020
Lacy knows the power of a good party dress. While on tour for his debut album, Apollo XXI, which is nominated for a Best Urban Contemporary Album Grammy at tonight’s ceremony at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Lacy posted a selfie wearing a plaid Balenciaga frock in his hotel room shower, of all places. What’s more, at one point in his trippy video for “Playground,” Lacy also layers a preppy Opening Ceremony x Lacoste dress over a tie-dye long sleeve shirt.
Now, though, Lacy’s wearing a dress on the red carpet for the first time. The California singer and producer arrived at the Grammys in a gray Comme des Garçons dress and tailored jacket with a peplum-like silhouette. He finished off the look with some delicate necklaces and a pair of chunky Rick Owens combat boots, whose unconventional laces resemble a spider’s web.
Lacy’s not the first man to wear a dress on the red carpet as of late—he follows in the footsteps of Billy Porter and Ezra Miller. With his latest fashion moment, he’s proving those gender-bending sensibilities work just as well on the red carpet as they do in the privacy of his hotel room.
