Rihanna wasn’t the only one causing double takes at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards. Former Saturday Night Live star Chris Kattan was also there — dressed up as Mango. Kattan wasn’t being a Sacha Baron Cohen-esque prankster; he actually was the invited guest of designer Alexander Wang, who is featuring Mango in his upcoming work.
“I’ve always loved Mango’s character from SNL, and to be able to work with [Chris] was such an honor,” Wang told Style.com. “Sometimes when fashion becomes too stiff, it’s great to have someone such as Mango come through and inject a new burst of energy. Having fun and a sense of humor is so important to me that when I’m able to incorporate it into my work, I run with it.”
Nobody tell Stefon that Mango gets to be in a fashion movie.
