It was another star-studded weekend in New York City.

Summer is nearly here, and New York City is more abuzz with celebrities than ever. The past two weekends have seen some of the biggest names in hip-hop and R&B taking the stage at Hot 97 Summer Jam, and more recently, Governor's Ball. While the former gave us performances from Cardi B, Lil Tjay, and Coi Leray (among others), the latter saw Lizzo headlining on Friday (June 9), and Kendrick Lamar closing things out on Sunday night.

This isn't the only time we've seen K-Dot outside since wrapping up his Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers World Tour. Earlier this month he caught our attention at Primavera Sound, where the Pulitzer Prize-winning lyricist brought out clones to make a creative statement. His set in NYC last night was equally as riveting, and saw him wearing an orange and white outfit paired with a backwards blue cap.

There were plenty of noteworthy style moments throughout the weekend in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Not only did those attending the event step out in their best, but artists like Ice Spice, Lil Nas X, and Ari Lennox made sure to show off plenty of body.

Elsewhere, Pusha T stepped out in a sleek Louis Vuitton look ahead of Pharrell Williams' debut at the label. We also loved PinkPantheress' homage to the '00s, Giveon's bright, all-white outfit, and Lizzo's sparkly silver gown that had her resembling the Statue of Liberty.
