Frank Ocean Brought A Creepy Animatronic Baby On The Met Gala Red Carpet

Fashion's night of nights is well underway in New York City as celebrities from all across the world gather for the infamous Met Gala.

While there are plenty of A-listers who showed up wearing daring gowns, big statement outfits and canon-worthy looks, there was one standout that left people a little creeped out.

Frank Ocean, legendary soul-RnB musician, arrived in a simple and understated Prada look.

Dressed in a black 'Dreamcore' hat, black jacket, pants and shoes, and sporting bright green hair, the Blonde artist was also carrying a terrifying green animatronic baby.

The baby had a green face and its eyes were seen blinking and moving up and down, while its free arm was also able to move like it was a real green-screen child.

The theme for the Met Gala for 2021 is 'In America: A Lexicon Of Fashion' and Frank said his outfit was paying homage to American cinema.

"He's starstruck, I'm starstruck," Frank said in an interview with Vogue.

Ocean wasn't the only one sporting a rather bizarre accessory for the big night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Singer Grimes elevated the futuristic alien/outer space look by coming dressed in Iris van Herpen's custom 'Bene Gesserit' gown, which apparently took 900 hours to complete.

But while she had a light-up book in one hand, she also had a goddamn full-sized sword just chilling in the other.

Speaking to Vogue, the singer said: "The sword is based on a western European sword from the end of the Middle Ages around 1400...is a permanent piece of the Met's collection, and the sword is also cast from a Colt AR-15A3.

"It's from these people who are getting people's [guns] who don't want to have their automatic rifles anymore, and are melting them down and making them perfect replicas of medieval swords, which I think is just so cool-I think it's a beautiful thing."

Grimes also explained why she likes working with Iris van Herpen.

"Iris has been one of our favorites. I just feel a kinship to women behind the computer," she said.

"She is a technologist, you know? And I feel like she's always been on another level. Like, to me she's kind of got an argument for being the current era McQueen or something, she's pushing the boundaries in a way that I don't know if anyone is actually competing with her?"
