Kid Cudi wears floral dress on SNL in tribute to Kurt Cobain
As the musical guest on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live (on April 10), Kid Cudi used his pair of performances to pay tribute to the late Kurt Cobain.
The 37-year-old rapper and actor played Sad People and Tequila Shots during the Carey Mulligan-hosted show, donning a floral print dress for the former song, and a green cardigan in the latter – both of which paid homage to the Nirvana frontman, who died just over 27 years ago.
Following the performance, Kid Cudi revealed that Virgil Abloh had designed the Kurt-esque floral dress, and it will feature in an upcoming collaboration with Off-White. “Virgil designed the dress for me,” he tweeted. “I told him I wanted to show love to Kurt with a floral print sundress and this man made a masterpiece. Thank you.”
