Male celebrities are constantly pushing boundaries and challenging gender stereotypes with their fashion choices. Men in skirts is one of the most refreshing red carpet trends that we’re seeing everywhere right now and these five stars already gave it their seal of approval.

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt made a bold fashion statement while promoting his new movie Bullet Train in Paris. He made headlines after hitting the red carpet in a raw-hemmed, knee-length brown skirt, paying homage to his Troy days.

Billy Porter

The conversation about men in skirts would be incomplete without a mention of a true trailblazer Billy Porter, who rocked skirts and dresses everywhere from the Oscars to film premieres.

Lil Nas X

Lil Nas X is another male celebrity known for constantly breaking gender stereotypes with his fashion choices. Skirts are a staple of his stage outfits, but he’s also no stranger to wearing them on the red carpet.

Oscar Isaac

If we had to pick the men’s skirt designer of all men’s skirt designers, Thom Browne would take the cake. Oscar Isaac is one of the stars to attend the Met Gala in one of Browne’s skirts.

Russell Westbrook

The basketball superstar Russell Westbrook also gave us a skirt alert at the Met Gala in one of Thom Browne’s statement designs, which perfectly fit the event’s theme.
