Some of the world’s most famous faces graced the red carpet last night for the 2019 MTV VMAs but there was only one real ‘queen’ according to Twitter, as Jonathan Van Ness stole the best dressed crown.
The legendary hairstylist of ‘Queer Eye’ fame set the Internet alight when he arrived at the A-list event in one of his greatest looks to date.
Not one to stick his sartorial comfort zone, the 32-year-old chose an all-black ensemble which included a vest top (that’s one SS19 trend ticked from the list) and matching hot pants.
Jonathan Van Ness, who identifies as non binary, has since commented on the VMA outfit and called out media outlets on Twitter who dubbed the small screen star a “man in a non binary outfit”.
He took to the social media platform to write, “For me, it’s actually a non binary person in a non binary outfit.”

The tweet soon amassed over 41,000 likes with followers rushing to thank Van Ness for inspiring others in the gender-fluid ensemble.

Another agreed, adding: “I love you so much!!!! You tell them!!!! Thank you for inspiring me and showing me that there is a place in the world for people like me!!!! I LOVE YOU!”
