Post Malone’s showstopping pink leather Grammys outfit came about all thanks to a retro women’s suit his stylist Catherine Hahn laid her eyes on.
The Congratulations rapper has left the wife-beater vests behind to debut a more glitzy style on the red carpet in recent months, favouring western suits with an Americana vibe.
And on Sunday (10Feb19), he stepped out at the annual music event in a suit made especially by Hahn, which he topped off with matching pink cowboy boots.
“I actually saw a vintage ’80s lady’s studded leather suit and thought, ‘If that only existed in Posty’s size!’” Hahn smiled to Vogue.
Hahn recreated the look for the 23-year-old and had the leather jacket and pants covered with hundreds of rhinestone crystals by the artisans at Star Studded, a workshop in Beverly Hills famous for its Vegas style embellishment.
And it was paired with a white undershirt by Tom Ford which he described as a “wife lover,” not beater. “Working with Cathy we have created a unique style that just stays true to who I am and what I am most comfortable with,” said Malone, who was nominated for four Grammys, but came away empty-handed.
Ahead of his performance at the awards ceremony, the rapper switched up his outfit, opting for an emerald green velvet suit embroidered with dragons and his first and last names on each arm, which Hahn explained was inspired by a very famous British Rocker.
“My inspiration was Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin who wore this dragon suit,” says Hahn. “I love that emerald green colour so I thought, ‘Let’s do a velvet green with dragons.’”
Post’s dragon suit was teamed with a bespoke foppish cream shirt, complete with a Prince-style pussy bow, made in Los Angeles.
“So many amazing makers were involved in this outfit,” gushed the stylist.
