Mar 07 2018
Because they are literally everywhere right now, figure skaters Adam Rippon and Mirai Nagasu appeared on the red carpet at the Academy Awards on Sunday night. The 28-year-old, who was one of the first openly gay American man to compete in the South Korean Winter Olympics Games, chose to make an entrance in a Moschino look from Jeremy Scott. The 2018 Olympians will be our Access guests of honor! "It feels awesome. I think the whole point of the Oscars and of fashion in general is that you can go out there and express yourself".
The first openly gay USA athlete sent to the Winter Olympics was a fan favorite, with celebs like Mandy Moore and Sally Fields fangirling over him.
Adam Rippon's S&M-inspired suit at the Oscars gets a lot of support online on social media.
"America's Next Top Model" host Tyra Banks was definitely feeling the look, taking to Twitter to call Rippon "fierce" for his unexpected style move.
