Adam Rippon Speaks Out About Wearing a Harness to the 2018 Oscars

Adam Rippon Speaks Out About Wearing a Harness to the 2018 Oscars

The risk-taking Rippon stepped out on the red carpet in a cropped black suit with cold-shoulder detail, matching pants and -the standout piece-a studded leather chest harness-all by Jeremy Scott for Moschino.

While menswear choices on the Oscars red carpet are traditionally conservative, the 28-year-old skating star's look was a reminder that daring fashion isn't exclusively for the women. The 2018 Olympians will be our Access guests of honor!

He became the first openly gay American man to compete in the Winter Games.

The Olympic figure skater had a spectacular Winter Olympics on and off the ice while becoming - as he put it - "America's sweetheart".

FYI: Adam is wearing a Moschino by Jeremy Scott look.
