The best western-themed beauty moments in movies and pop culture

TextOliver Lunn

As Dazed goes west with Lil Nas X on the cover of its autumn 2019 issue, we dip into the pop-cultural archives with some of the best western beauty moments of all time

Western-inspired looks are squarely in the spotlight right now. For his AW19 collection, Telfar presented a runway rodeo, sending stetson-topped, chaps-clad models down his catwalk in true cowboy style. Solange paid tribute to her Texan heritage in the visuals for When I Get Home. And then there’s the fact that country-trap has skyrocketed to the mainstream, with Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” breaking the record for most weeks at No 1 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In the video for his absurdly catchy Billy Ray Cyrus collab, the Dazed cover star straddles a horse through an urban neighbourhood. He wears a dark brown hat, dusty jacket, and gold earrings. I’m pretty sure this is the definition of fly.

Doffing his hat to the west, trap’s first cowboy is the latest artist to remind us how fun western-inspired beauty looks can be. Look at the pop culture of yesteryear and you’ll discover a whole treasure trove of styles waiting to be dusted off. Expect tassels, frills, big boots, spurs, and of course, hats whose brims curve like perfect Mexican tortilla chips. Saddle up, partner.
