Kid Cudi Channels Dennis Rodman & Kurt Cobain By Wearing Wedding Dress: ‘Be Free, Baby’

New York, N.Y. – Kid Cudi’s built a reputation as one of Hip Hop’s most daring dressers who refuses to conform to societal norms when it comes to his fashion sense.

Cudder turned heads once again on Wednesday night (November 10) when he walked the CFDA Fashion Awards red carpet in a wedding dress alongside designer Eli Russell Linnetz.

Inspired by the late Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain, Cudi’s stylish look included a white tuxedo jacket, lace glove sleeces, a wedding gown, glistening cream sneakers and a veil to complete the outfit and cover his red-dyed hair.

Outside of Cobain’s influence, some fans have also likened Cudi’s bold ensemble to Dennis Rodman’s wedding dress that he famously wore while “marrying himself” in 1996.

The Ohio native posted a clip leaving the event with him taking a swig from a bottle and smoking weed while listening to Young Thug and Rowdy Rebel’s “Came and Saw.”

The fashion award show took place at NYC’s The Grill Room and also saw appearances from Aminé, J. Balvin, Ciara, Zendaya, Dapper Dan and more.

When taking a fashion risk of this magnitude, there’s naturally going to be some backlash on social media but also those who respect his fearlessness.

“Showing the kids they can do and be whoever they want,” one fan wrote.

Rocking a dress isn’t out of the realm for Kid Cudi. During his Saturday Night Live appearance earlier this year, the “Pursuit of Happiness” rapper donned a floral dress in another homage to Kurt Cobain.

It’s been a busy quarter four of 2021 for Kid Cudi. Cudder reunited with JAY-Z last week for a track titled “Gun Go Bang” off The Harder They Fall soundtrack. He also delivered his A Man Named Scott documentary which hit Amazon Prime Video on November 5.
