Emma Chamberlain, who interviewed her fellow attendees on behalf of Vogue, caught up with Lil Nas X and simply *HAD* to ask him about the inspiration behind his outfits!!!

“We wanted to start with, like, royalty, you know. Or like, a cloak […] like we’re in our shell,” the “INDUSTRY BABY” singer explained.

“And then we break out of it a little bit more […] it’s kind of like me when I got into the industry. No one knew who I was.”

About the second look — aka the ✨golden armor✨ — Lil Nas X said: “It’s like I built this shield around myself […] I came out, and this year, I feel like I REALLY came out.”

“I think it represents this breakdown to THIS,” he said of his final fitted bodysuit(!!!!!!!!!!!!).

Thank you Lil Nas X for truly giving us everything on your first Met Gala carpet. Nobody is doing it like you, KING!!!!!!!!!!!!
