The style icon is taking cues from the elderly.
A$AP Rocky was picked from his peers as one of the most stylish rap artists of his generation. He gets invited to sit front row at highbrow fashion shows for this reason alone. Many publications have studied and praised his style, offering tips to their readers based on Rocky's popular looks. His latest outfit, however, might earn him a different kind of attention. The rap star showed up to the LACMA Art & Film Gala with an unusual accessory.
The "Fashion Killa" walked the red carpet with confidence as onlookers wondered about the silk scarf wrapped around his head. The way in which it was tied is reminiscent of some of our grandmothers. He paired the headgear with shades, channeling the casual chic trend of vintage Hollywood actresses.
When he was asked about his fashion choices A$AP was pleased to speak on his silk.
"I just wanted to show off my baboushka today, honestly. I thought it was so immaculate. And I feel like I look so handsome right now with the shades on. I'm just encouraging all guys to wear baboushka's from here on out. Silk gang, silk city. You know how we do it."
Shout out to the stylish Russian grannies out there.
