Lil Nas X made a dramatic entrance clad in a pearly Balmain suit to the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, which took place at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday.

His creative/fashion director Hodo Musa was clearly inspired by the $20K Balmain FW/12 dress Kim Kardashian donned for her bachelorette party before her 2014 wedding to third husband Kanye West.

The pop rapper-singer – turning 23 next Saturday – looked regal in the white ornate two-piece accented with symbolic butterflies.

Lil Nas X (born Montero Lamar) gave a big boost to his slim 6ft2in frame with matching platform boots, which left him towering over everyone else on the red carpet.

Hairstylist Stacey Kutz even coiffed the Atlanta-born hip-hop star’s natural locks to make him appear taller.

Lil Nas X accessorized his elegant look with a diamond grill, earrings, and rings as well as a hint of blue eye shadow on the corners of his eyes.

The Lean on my Body star’s make-up artist Grace Pae struggled to reach him with a battery operated fan and a handkerchief to dab sweat off his complexion.
