Adam Rippon Wore A Leather Harness To The Oscars And Twitter Could Not Handle It

Daddy tux.

Winter Olympics viewers were used to seeing breakout star Adam Rippon in the sparkly, bedazzled outfits he wore on the ice, but he showed a new side of himself at this year's Oscars.

At last night's red carpet before the 90th Academy Awards, Rippon showed up in a studded leather harness by Jeremy Scott for Moschino—and Twitter lost. It.

“Not only is Adam an amazing athlete, he is an inspiration to me for his unfailing determination to speak his truth and combat bigotry and hate with love and intelligence!” Scott told The Hollywood Reporter.

“His tux is a nod to Old Hollywood with a twist,” added Scott. “I’ve exposed the shoulders; we mixed this with a black leather harness and patent leather bow tie and satin cummerbund.”

Between Rippon's red carpet look at that episode of Queer Eye, leather harnesses are really having a moment right now—and we are so here for it.
