Sam Smith dazzles in sequin-clad duster during NYFW post BRITs controversy

The Unholy singer looked divine in sequins with a latex twist


All hail Sam Smith, who successfully sent the internet into meltdown following their viral BRIT Awards appearance. The singer swapped their headline-hitting inflatable latex look by HARRI for something with a touch more sparkle as they took their prestigious place on the front row of Christian Cowan's Fall/Winter 2023 show on Tuesday.

For the celebrity-saturated soiree, the 30-year-old wore a champagne-toned sequin-clad duster featuring a single-breasted cut, a floor-grazing length and an oversized fit. The disco-ready piece was cooly layered over a cherry red tank top which came complete with matching straight-leg trousers, latex gloves and patent platform boots.

Not one for a subtle style moment, Lil Nas commanded attention in a sharply tailored lilac suit with a satin finish, some silver croc-effect heeled boots and a magnificent plume of candy pink feathers that formed a sensational headpiece.
