Lil Nas X attends The 2021 Met Gala Celebrating In America: A Lexicon Of Fashion at Metropolitan Museum of Art on Sept. 13, 2021 in New York City.

When attending your first Met Gala ball, it's best to make the most of your night. In addition to wearing an eye-catching ensemble, one wants to take as many celebrity selfies as possible. Clearly, Lil Nas X got the memo, because he hit the carpet in a regal golden velvet Versace robe, stripped off to reveal a golden suit of armor, which he then peeled away to reveal a body-hugging gold-embellished black bodysuit.

But he didn't just bring three outfit changes. He also brought the glitter to the star-studded fashion event by posing with some new and old friends for a series of glamorous snaps. He was all smiles posing with Frank Ocean, who showed up with green hair and a cute robotic baby doll in tow. He also posted an all-star snap in which he pointed at the camera while cramming into frame with Pete Davidson, Lil Uzi Vert, Jack Harlow and Erykah Badu.

He also got a pic with Dixie D'Amelio and Addison Rae, and a cute one with Timothée Chalamet. But perhaps the get of the night was a shot with the ultra-glam Billie Eilish, who lolled out her tongue as if about to lick the "Industry Baby" artist's armor in a steamy shot.

Though it's been fun for the artist in the past days -- from his MTV Video Music Awards wins and getting dressed up for the Met Gala -- Lil Nas is still gearing up to drop his eagerly anticipated debut, Montero, on Friday (Sept. 17).
