There is a lot to unpack about last night’s CFDA Awards. There was all the gorgeous dresses. There was Solange and Rachel Roy in the same room after the Met Ball fight. There was Rihanna basically naked on the red carpet. And oh, there’s Chris Kattan dressed up as one of his Saturday Night Live characters from fifteen years ago. Whaaaat?
Chris Kattan hit the red carpet in character as Mango, a fashiony, pan-sexual, it boy stripper role that peaked in the late ’90s. Why, oh why, was he at the very fancy CFDA Awards? Did Kattan crash the red carpet, like that prankster punching Brad Pitt? It turns out he was very much invited, and it has to do with an upcoming campaign by designer Alexander Wang.
It seems that Wang is a huge fan of the character, and invited Kattan to resurrect him for his 2014 campaign for T by Alexander Wang. Kattan appears in a video that just debuted, and includes cameos from Behati Prinsloo and Real Housewives of New York star Sonja Morgan. It’s almost too strange to explain any further, so you’ll just have to watch.
What do you think of the video? Did you watch Mango on Saturday Night Live? Do you think it’s a strange choice by Alexander Wang? Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @OKMagazine.
