GLAM OR SHAM?: Kanye West at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade PLUS Performance Video
Kanye West‘s fashion sense has certainly evolved beyond backpacks and Polo bears (as evidenced by his design stint at Louis Vuitton and recent ACE award). The question is…to what?
Well, judging from his most recent appearances, Tom Ford, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Burberry are his go-to designers and fur, chains, velvet, cleavage baring tops and slim pants are his new and improved wardrobe basics. Kiss the Polo shirt Goodbye.
Though I’m not surprised that the same creative genius behind his incredible album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and film, Runaway, translates into his fashion sense, I wonder if his more high-fashion, European-inspired looks appear too feminine. I mean, Beanie Sigel criticized him when he was only wearing tight jeans. Now, his shirts resemble blouses complete with glamorous chains. Hmm…
His latest outfit certainly had tongues wagging. At the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Kanye West wore a fur vest, leather jacket and pants, a metallic low-cut tank, layered gold necklaces, fingerless gloves and a head-tie while performing one of my fave songs “Lost in the World.” That’s so something I would wear (fur and sequins are, like, my thing). Someone remarked that he looked like Mr. T dressed in drag. Ouch.
What do you think of his look? Is he dressing too feminine these days? And check out his performance below:
