The last person you’d expect to see at the CFDAs (basically the Oscars of fashion) is a goofy comedian. UNLESS, of course, he was dressed as the most fashionable Saturday Night Live character of all time (besides Maya Rudolph as Donatella). We’re talking about none other than Mango, the enchanting exotic dancer played by Chris Kattan during his time on the show. When we saw Mango walk down the red carpet as Alexander Wang’s date, we were equal parts excited and confused. Sure, we were stoked to see the character resurrected in leather hot pants and a glittery beret, but also…why was he there in the first place?
