Lil Nas X has become a whole lot more than an artist to watch. The American rapper has stunned every award show with over-the-moon wardrobe choices while causing all the rave with his subtle-yet-impactful touches of glamour. After his latest beauty venture — becoming the face of the YSL Beauty campaign — we could only assume the artist, at just 23 years young, has lots of groundbreaking beauty moments on the horizon. An excellent example: he has officially added the title of runway model to his resumé.
Coach, the New York fashion house currently under the creative direction of fashion designer Stuart Vevers, has just inducted Nas X as the brand’s newest global ambassador. On Monday, September 12, he made his runway debut wearing long, to-the-chest braids during this year’s Coach Spring 2023 fashion show.
Along with his blue steel facial expression simply destined for the catwalk, the artist took his stride with short baby hairs brushed down around the hairline accompanied by a deep middle part. Hairstylist Coree Moreno styled Nas’s two face-framing braids (along with his perfectly groomed mustache), giving the show’s photographers numerous angles to capture. The rest of his medium-sized braids swayed down the catwalk with him and brushed against his leather-washed vest.
