Lil Nas X Wows In Elaborate Met Gala Debut With Multiple Outfit Changes and a Lot of Gold

It's been a big week for the 'Montero' artist.

Lil Nas X has made his Met Gala debut! The often skin-baring entertainer surprised everyone with a multitude of different looks.

The 22-year-old artist arrived at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art in a fabulous Versace ensemble, rocking a giant, embroidered cloak, which led to a series of costume changes and different stunning looks.

After dropping the cloak, the MONTERO artist was revealed to be wearing a full suit of golden armor, like a Knight of the Round Table decked out in shimmering glam.
