I know we all have a lot on our minds. But what if I told you we should have more on our minds? What if I told you that for once, having more on your mind would be better? I'm talking literally here—on Saturday night at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) Art and Film Gala, A$AP Rocky wore a luxurious Gucci head scarf on the red carpet, and I want it. No, wait. I need it. Take it in. Regard its beauty.

Sure, it's been deemed a bit of a grandma scarf by the Internet at large. But how many of your grandmas are out there with a collection of Gucci scarves? Even still, if you're going to model your behavior after anyone, it's probably a grandma: She's seen things, she always has candy, and whose hair is out of place when a swift gust comes through? Not grandma's! Because she has a wonderful head scarf.

The whole outfit is on point, but the scarf is the clear star of the show. As noted in the tweet above, A$AP Rocky wore Gucci head to toe, with a DIY two-button satin peak-lapel New Signoria tuxedo, white evening shirt, leather slippers, sunglasses, and, of course, the silk scarf with Flora Gothic print. At the event, when asked about the scarf, A$AP said, "I just wanted to show off my babushka today, honestly." You know what? Good for you, my friend. Pour one out for the babushkas everywhere. 

If you would like to pair the brand's iconic scarf, first designed in the '60s by Vittorio Accornero, with something in your own closet, it's a quick $495 via Gucci. But the payoff for turning high-end grandma looks out at your next event? You can't put a price tag on that.
