The spotlight was shone on the figure skater ahead of this year's Winter Olympics in Pyeognchang, because of his outspoken view on sexuality and US Vice President Mike Pence. His black Moschino tuxedo jacket featured cold shoulders, and he rocked a leather harness underneath the dapper look.
The 28-year-old Olympian wore a harness under his suit while walking the carpet at the 2018 Academy Awards held at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (March 4) in Hollywood.
After redefining red carpet fashion forever, many people took to Twitter to express their reaction to Rippon's bold choice of formalwear. "@tryrabanks you just get it".
"Hoe, but make it fashion". "Being an Olympic athlete, Adam has a great physique to dress and his personality is so vibrant-he is the ideal man for me to dress on the Oscars red carpet!".
Tyra Banks was absolutely loving Rippon's outfit, tweeting that he looked fierce.
