The 49th year of Pride was bolder and grander than ever – no small cause for celebration in the face of the Trump Administration – and the revellers turned out dressed to wow. FIB rounded up some of the best looks from the rainbow weekend, with enough sartorial inspiration to last until next year.
If there was ever a weekend to dress full wack, this would be it. Aside from a boatload of denim cut-offs, there were printed jackets, bondage-themed outfits and full-length tutus to gape over. And, of course, it wouldn’t be Pride with several tons of glitter. Here are our favourite outfits:
Angel of the fashion industry, Ms Skriver, definitely showcased her dress-up abilities, attending the parade in denim shorts and a black cropped T-shirt, with the word ‘REBEL’ printed across her chest.
A masterclass in how to rainbow-up a simple jeans and tee combo, by Lady Gaga.
Talented singer and actress, Victoria Justice, appeared looking adorably girl-next-door in a horizontally striped tank and matching jeans. Oh, and we’re searching for that sequin backpack ASAP.
Canadian rapper Tommy Genesis joined the event, looking like an overgrown shiny watermelon, and we’re weirdly into it…
Social media influencer Luis Machado rocked the mesh/bondage vibes that are doing the rounds at the moment.
Versace never looked so at home…
Luann De Lesseps:
Sequins are a Pride go-to, and these extra large ones are ticking all the boxes.
The American actor/model, Nico Tortorella, displayed his support for the LGBTQ+ community by donning a bride-inspired white dress, tailored out of mesh fabric by Designer, Sho Konishi.
