CFDA Awards 2014: Alexander Wang Brings Mango (Yes, That Mango) as His Date

06/02/2014 at 08:29 PM ET

The Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards is a time when American designers get to strut their stuff on the red carpet, often with a statuesque model or A-list starlet on their arm, dressed head to toe in the designer’s wares. For Alexander Wang, however, the night was even more special than that: He got to attend in the company of Mango. Yes, Mango. As in “You can’t have-a the Mango!,” late-’90s SNL, Chris Kattan alter ego Mango.

And (true to form) he arrived in a spangled beret — though the rest of his look was updated to a more Wang-appropriate ensemble. Gone were the gold-spangled short shorts, replaced by a more relaxed-fit leather pair (a Wang signature). And he got a high-fashion upgrade thanks to his shiny dress shoes, glamorous sweeping cape and V-neck top. The spit curl sideburns remained the same, of course, as they are a classic that will never go out of style.

Mango’s appearance on the red carpet was teased in an Instagram video on Wang’s site, where the designer promised a Mango-related reveal on June 3. Now that we’ve seen what the go-go dancer-slash-bewitching male model has to offer on the red carpet, we can’t wait to see what he has in store on Wang’s website tomorrow.

Chris Kattan has to pay the bills somehow since his career is in the toilet and he’s Mr. DUI.
