Adam Rippon really knows how to make a red carpet entrance. The 28-year-old figure skater, who won a bronze medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics, showed up at the 90th Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday wearing a tux with an attached harness by designer Jeremy Scott.
Of course, the internet went crazy for it.

Rippon is attending the Oscars with fellow Team USA figure skater Mirai Nagasu, who was the first American woman to land a triple axel at the Winter Olympics. The pair apparently had a lot of fans on the red carpet.
This is fact: I witnessed more people greeting these two @Olympics stars, asking for selfies, professing love than any actors or nominees. It’s already turning out to be great #Oscars for @Adaripp @mirai_nagasu. He told me he wants to meet Meryl Streep over anyone. pic.twitter.com/IrxBi0yqMH
