During his appearance, the Aquaman actor took the time to chat about everything, from his house (which consists of pythons and donkeys) to an Aquaman sequel. And while those topics were interesting and all, we couldn’t help but notice one thing from the moment he walked onstage...a very familiar pink scrunchie.
Yep, it’s been over three months since he debuted the (now famous) velvet Fendi scrunchie on the Oscars red carpet, but it looks like the 39-year-old actor isn’t giving up on the hair accessory any time soon. Dedication.
If you didn’t know, the accessory has a pretty significant meaning behind it.
As the story goes, after being gifted a velvet scrunchie from his hairstylist, Momoa and Los Angeles-based stylist Jeanne Yang sent ideas for his Oscars outfit over to Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi. A fitting took place on the Saturday before Mr. Lagerfeld passed, which means the light pink velvet suit (and scrunchie) may have been the last personalized pieces Lagerfeld worked on.
“That was the first suit I ever had made for me,” Momoa told Ellen. “So it was pretty special.” Yeah, we would say so.
But that wasn’t all. Ellen eventually got to the really hard hitting stuff—his shirtlessness at the Vanity Fair after-party. His response? Wife Lisa Bonet told him he didn’t need to wear a top. Simple as that.
Hey, we won’t argue.
