Here comes Kid Cudi.
The rapper turned heads while walking down the red carpet in a white wedding dress at the 2021 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York on Wednesday night (Nov. 10).
According to Vogue, Cudi’s custom bridal gown was designed by West Coast label ERL. The white lace dress featured gloved sleeves and an ankle-length bell skirt, along with a tuxedo jacket with ivory lapels, cream-colored sneakers, and a veil. He completed the grungy look with hot pink hair and smoky eyeshadow.

While making his way down the carpet, Cudi held hands with ERL’s founder, American Emerging Designer of the Year nominee Eli Russell Linnetz, who played groom to Cudi in a black-and-white tuxedo.
“This is Eli’s vision. He sent me a text and said he wanted to do this and I said, ‘Let’s go,'” Cudi told a reporter when asked how the look came together.
The dress was an homage to one of Cudi’s idols, Kurt Cobain. Cudi tweeted a photo of the late Nirvana frontman in a white wedding dress. The rock icon also inspired the floral Off-White gown that Cudi wore during his “SNL” performance in April.
Cudi is fresh off the release of his documentary “A Man Named Scott,” which premiered on Amazon Prime Video earlier this month.
