Frank Ocean put himself in the spotlight at Monday’s Met Gala in Manhattan when he arrived with a creepy robot baby in his arms.
The 33-year-old pop author opted for a nondescript, mostly black look, though he dyed his short hair green to match his diminutive plus one.
The singer returned to the fashion event after the 2020 Met Gala was canceled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which also postponed this year’s edition.
Tickets for two: Frank Ocean, 33, had an odd plus one for Monday’s Met Gala in Manhattan – a lime green robot baby moving in his arms
Frank was wearing a black suede Prada cardigan and a low-key jacket from the same fashion house, as well as matching black jeans.
He wore simple black leather shoes and contrasted the dark color scheme with a white T-shirt poking out above his vest.
The Sweet Life singer wore a chunky silver and diamond necklace around his neck from his luxury brand Homer, and he also wore diamond earrings.
But it was his baseball cap that may have provided a clue about his bizarre companion.

Clues? He wore a “DreamCore” hat modeled on the studio’s DreamWorks logo. It could refer to a creepy school of dreamlike TikTok videos, which would fit the odd baby perfectly
Frank was wearing a navy hat with the movie studio’s DreamWorks logo, but it said “DreamCore” instead.
The term describes a TikTok aesthetic in which social media stars have sometimes created disturbing videos that play both nostalgic and unusual dream logic.
His animatronic baby would definitely fit in any video made in the style
Frank’s companion had pale green skin and was covered in a brown-and-black Homer romper.
The device was seen moving its arms while Frank was holding it, and it also had glassy moving eyeballs.
Seeing green: Frank showed off dyed green hair to match the baby, who was wearing a onesie from his Homer label. He reportedly cooed and talked to the baby on the red carpet
It’s alive! In photos posted to his Instagram account, Frank pictured himself shirtless as the robot appeared to be standing behind him, looking up with his disturbing smile.

The Super Rich Kids singer gave his three million followers a peek at his freshly dyed green hair as he puffed up his lips.
He should remove the finished look minus the baby in a quiet bathroom selfie.
Entrants to this year’s Met Gala must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
“Currently, all participants at The Met Gala on Sept. 13 must provide proof of full vaccination and are also expected to wear masks indoors except when eating or drinking,” a The Met spokesperson said last month.
Frank showed off his mask in a relaxed bathroom selfie that appeared to have been taken at the Met.

The theme is In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, although the musician has not always followed the theme well.
At the 2019 ceremony, which was built around the concept of ‘camp’, he wore an almost identical black Prada outfit to this year.
This year’s gala will be a more intimate affair, followed by a larger gala on May 2, 2022. Both will launch a two-part exhibition, an overview of American fashion that will run for nearly a year.
In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, which opens Sept. 18, will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the museum’s Costume Institute and “explore a modern vocabulary of American fashion,” the spokesperson added.
Part two, In America: An Anthology of Fashion, opens May 5, 2022 in the museum’s popular American Wing period rooms and, in collaboration with film directors, will explore American fashion by “presenting stories related to the complex and layered histories of those spaces.’ Both parts close on September 5, 2022.
