Adam Rippon slays on the Oscar’s red carpet

Olympian Adam Rippon got a lot of attention yesterday when he walked the red carpet at the 90th Academy Awards.

Rippon wore a leather harness and tuxedo created by designer Jeremy Scott for Moschino. The jacket is part of the latest range from Monschino, the harness we presume is just something Rippon had in his wardrobe.

Some mainstream newspaper speculated that Rippon’s look was inspired by the book 50 Shades of Grey, but they’ve clearly never been to a Bears Den Night.

The sportsman also got a chance to meet his celebrity crush. During a recent interview on Ellen, Rippon shared that he had quite a liking for singer Shawn Mendes.

After the Oscars Rippon headed to the Vanity Fair after-party where he met up with Mendes, the two posing for a selfie.
