Tyler, The Creator put his eclectic fashion taste on display when it came to Sunday’s (Jan. 26) Grammy Awards, which will go down as one of the best nights in the 28-year-old’s career. The Golf Wang boss hit the red carpet in a pink bellhop suit like he was fresh off a shift from his second job at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.
Tyler was the talk of the carpet with his custom-designed Golf Le Fleur mauve suit, white gloves, black sunglasses, and a red Russian ushanka hat. At one point, he stopped to strike a pose and opened up his matching suitcase, which was equipped with the striped shirt he would wear during the ceremony and his Igor alter-ego outfit that he went on to rock for his fiery “Earfquake” performance.
The “I Think” artist went on to take home best rap album honors for Igor, marking his first win at the Grammys while besting the likes of Meek Mill, 21 Savage, YBN Cordae, and Dreamville. Even though he was happy with his victory, Tyler spoke candidly following the ceremony about his music being boxed into the rap and urban categories.
“On one side, I’m very grateful that what I made could just be acknowledged in a world like this,” he said. “But also, it sucks that whenever we, and I mean guys that look like me, do anything that’s genre-bending, they always put it in a ‘rap’ or ‘urban’ category. I don’t like that ‘urban’ word. It’s just a politically correct way to say the n-word to me. Why can’t we just be in pop?”
