If Russell Westbrook wearing a skirt did not pique your interest, then his latest fashion statement probably will. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar is embracing his inner Dennis Rodman as he arrived at the Met Gala with a rather unique hairdo.
Here's a look at Russ fully committing to the Met Gala's “American Independence” theme (h/t The New York Times on Twitter):

To be fair, that's a pretty clean look from Westbrook. The Lakers guard came in a dashing blue suit that matched the color of his hair. The stars are a clear representation of the flag of the United States as Russ wore his country's colors loud and proud.
Dennis Rodman made the dyed hair look his own during the 90s. The Chicago Bulls icon expressed his one-of-a-kind personality through his hair color, which changed as many times as Rodman made headlines for another one of his controversies. Needless to say, Russell Westbrook looks like he's a fan.
Westbrook's skirt-wearing and hair-coloring ways have some fans asking: is the former league MVP about to bring back the dyed hair trend to the NBA this season? He won't be the first to attempt it, but given how influential he is in the NBA, Russell Westbrook might just get things going again.
