Prince showed up to the 2014 French Open in style.

The Grammy-winning recording artist attended Rafael Nadal's fourth-round match in the 2014 French Open against Dusan Lajovic. Although the afro, turtleneck, aviators and vest would have been enough to stand out, Prince put the outfit over the top by carrying a shiny cane-like object:

Nadal won the match 6-1, 6-2, 6-1.

The New York Times' Ben Rothenberg reported that Prince, 55, also invited Nadal to one of his concerts:

Seeing as how the tennis star was still alive in the 2014 French Open, the concert may not have fit into his schedule.
