NFL player and recent draft pick for the Dallas Cowboys NFL team, Ezekiel Elliott is taking androgynous fashion to the red carpet. Picking fourth overall, Dallas chose the Ohio State running back for their team yesterday.

But it was his red carpet look that had everyone talking. He wore a cropped shirt to show off his abs.

We’ve seen this look on runways recently and on entertainers like Prince who was known for pushing boundaries with fashion and gender (see more on his style here).

Is he a future style icon in the making or was this a dare? Here he is with his parents at the event, imagine if they were typical Nigerian parents.

What do you think?

    Mens fashion is getting gayer and gayer by the day.

      I’m not trying to be overly religious but I believe there’s a spiritual attack on black men in America. Its quite disturbing. Forget the flamboyant gays, the concerning one is the level of how effeminate they are becoming and make it ok. The macho masculine ones who sleep with men then still mess with women. Some are gay but dont want to admit it. Theres an after school program for middl and high school i volunteer there sometimes. I hear their conversation and its heartbreaking. I heard one of the student talked about he’ll beat up a kid and make him suck his d”#k. Another kid answered, i ain’t gay but that nigga look like he’ll give good head. So i had a talk with him, and he said don’t worry about it, we just having fun.
      Or imagine seeing a tall, handsome macho man, then found out he’s gay. His partner is another masculine one. And you want to tell me, it’s normal. No, its not. God have mercy on us.

      i agree! He stole the show and got the media’s attention. go ahead boy!! he made front page of many papers, blogs and news sites.
      You dont just need athletic talents to succeed in his field anymore, you need the razzmattaz to keep you out there.
      Bella Naija was not gonna report on the NFL draft but thanks to him, NFL draft is on the radar of Nigerians that wouldnt have cared.
      Nothing gay about what he wore, a lil over the top maybe…but yall allowed Prince wear worse. so shut it!!!!

    @bellanaija…just some education Ezekial was a top Ohio state football player who use to wear his jersey in a crop top as a tribute to old school football players whose jerseys wear made shorter than standard football jerseys of today. Eventually the NCAA ruled against Ezekial’s jersey because it was not uniformed to his teammates and gave him some kind of advantage because opponents could not tackle him properly (basically BS).
    So Zeke (as we Buckeyes call him) was just sticking one to the ol’ NCAA folks.
    Shoutout to all my BUCKEYEs?

    You guys need to do your research before posting stories. It has NOTHING to do with being androgynous. It’s just an ode to how he wore his jersey when he played in college. It started out as a mockery to the old school jerseys that were short, then it became a showmanship thing when everyone assumed it was to show off his pack.

    Dude merely brought his signature look on the field to the red carpet. Now you have everyone talking about black men being “gayer” to spiritual battles.
