Did Kanye West and his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, switch outfits last night? That's the joke going around, anyway. Kanye "Immaletyoufinish" West performed at the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert in a leather skirt and leggings. A black leather SKIRT. It was designed by Givenchy. But that doesn't make it any less of a SKIRT.
I know that men all over the world in varying cultures wear skirts. Though they don't call them skirts. They call them kilts or dhotis or what have you. That doesn't make them any less like SKIRTS.
Me? Not a fan. Call me old-fashioned. I like a man in pants. Jeans. Slacks. Khakis? Not so much. Skirts? Less. Maybe I'm just not daring enough. Maybe I don't want the competition. What if his legs are better than mine? What if he wants to borrow my heels? Okay, I'm digressing. There's a saying: A man confident to wear a skirt is a real man. Actually, that's not a saying. Thank god.
Kanye's skirt, of course, immediately got his (her?) own Twitter account and began yammering. Soooo what's it like to be Kanye's skirt?
@Kanye'sSkirt Day 2 in Kanye's nether regions. The boxer briefs and i have formed an alliance to attempt escape.
@Kanye'sSkirt It seems I'm more popular than
@kanyewest 's actual performance. Maybe i should think of going solo.
You get the drift. (Or draft!) Funny guy (gal?), that Kanye's Skirt.
But I will hand it to Kanye. Normally it's the women whose outfits steal the show. See-through blouses. Plunging necklines. Pantyless crotch views. Leave it to Kanye to steal the show from Kristen Stewart's neon gym suit ensemble. Plus, I give him kudos for not pairing it with a sports bra like Kim recently did.
One thing is for sure. Kanye and Kim will be together forevah. She tweeted that he looked "so cute!" last night. Hey, if your man wears a leather skirt and you still think he looks great, then nothing, I mean nothing, can ever tear you apart.
Did you like Kanye's skirt?
