On Wednesday, Kid Cudi attended the CFDA Fashion Awards in a stunning bridal gown designed by American Emerging Designer of the Year nominee Eli Russell Linnetz’s ERL label. The fit came with a veil, a tailored white blazer, and lace gloves that disappeared up the sleeves, and matching sneakers.

Linnetz and Kid Cudi seem to be friends, because the designer told People that he just randomly asked him to participate in the event.

“I just out of the blue sent him a text of a wedding dress and I was like, ‘Will you be my bride?'” Linnetz said.

It seems like Cudi was having a good time, as he told the CDFA tiny microphone, “Be yourself, be free, baby, yeah!”

Cudi is the recent subject of Amazon Prime’s release of the feature-length documentary A Man Named Scott, which explores the rap artist’s legacy and features a number of interviews with big names like Kanye West, Willow Smith, A$AP Rocky, and more. A clip from the documentary was recently shared by Bella Hadid, who related to a quote from Smith when it came to dealing with her own anxiety and mental health.

“All humans are different, every single human has something so special and unique to offer,” Smith says. “And people forget that everyone is basically feeling the same way: lost, confused, not really sure why they’re here. That anxiety, like, everyone is feeling that- – and trying to cover it up in some way.”

“We’re gonna come together in our flaws. In our insecurities, in our joy, in our happiness, and accept it all as beautiful and natural,” she concludes. Cudi is certainly embodying joy in this dress.
