Per the house, Galliano created a bespoke haute couture look composed of a midnight blue barathea wool smoking jacket with black grosgrain lapels and red silk ribbon inseam lampasse. He accessorized the look with black leather gloves, black silk socks and a midnight blue foam hat enveloped in midnight blue stocking material as well as a black barathea wool flower bouquet. He paired the suit with black leather custom-made Tabi boots worn with spats that were created by Christian Louboutin for Maison Margiela.

Though it’s not visible from the look below, Margiela reports that underneath it all, he’s sporting a custom black satin corset. During the Vogue live stream, Bad Bunny confirmed he was donning a corset and joked to host LaLa Anthony “I can’t breathe at all.” He also called the entire ensemble “a very special outfit.”

This year’s dress code, “The Garden of Time,” takes its cue from the 1962 short story of the same name by J.G. Ballard, which dovetails with the latest Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute exhibition, Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion, which opens to the public on Friday, May 10. The Andrew Bolton-curated show spotlights fragile pieces from the institute’s archives, all viewed through a lens of nature. The exhibit’s coffee table book will be released on June 18.
