Kid Cudi wore a white lace wedding dress to the CFDA Awards in New York on Wednesday.

He arrived with designer Eli Russell Linetz, who said he texted Cudi asking, “Do you want to be my fiancÃ©e?”
Kid Cudi attended the CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City in a wedding dress on Wednesday.
The rapper’s white lace bridal look was created by ERL designer Eli Russell Linnetz, who shared photos of Cudi ahead of the event on Instagram and accompanied him on the red carpet wearing a classic tuxedo.
Linnetz, who was nominated for CFDA American Emerging Designer of the Year, made headlines in September as the mastermind behind A $ AP Rocky’s colorful quilt look at the 2021 Met Gala.
Speaking to People, Linnetz said he unexpectedly texted Cudi inviting him to the awards show, sharing a glimpse of what he would wear.
“I sent her a text from a wedding dress out of the blue,” the 30-year-old Californian designer told People. “I was like, ‘Do you want to be my bride?'”
Cudi’s personalized wedding dress consisted of a full-body lace catsuit, gloves, a cream-colored blazer, and a veil over her neon pink hair. Cream silver-embellished sneakers completed the look, and her accessories included a set of rings as well as a Black Jesus necklace, Vogue reports.
Cudi said he has no doubts when it comes to working with Linnetz.
“I trust this man so I was there to take him wherever he thought,” he told People.
The rapper is no stranger to a trendy dress. During a musical appearance on âSNLâ in April, he wore an Off White floral dress designed by Virgil Abloh. A featured guest on HBO’s âThe Shop: Interruptedâ in June, the rapper explained that he wore the dress as a tribute to the late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain and responded to the reaction he received for it, Complex reported. .
âI knew it would piss off some people, but I love it,â he said.
“If that’s what I’m supposed to do, so be it. I want to be a disruptor,” Cudi added. “And that’s cool, because I also give kids confidence and tell them to be themselves and do whatever they want to do.”
Reps for Kid Cudi and Eli Russell Linnetz did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
