Kanye West Wears Blue Contacts to Met Gala -- We're Kinda Terrified

Blue Steel! At the Met Gala in New York City on Monday night, Kanye West didn't just bring ripped jeans, suede boots, and a bedazzled jean jacket -- he also brought a new eye color. For the high-profile fashion event, Kanye sported blue contacts, and yes, they looked just as weird as you would expect.

Kanye first rocked blue contacts back in February when he performed on Saturday Night Live's anniversary special. They looked strange and kind of eerie then, and they looked strange and kind of eerie on Monday night. Check it out:

Spooky! Sort of looks like Kanye is staring right through to our souls. Also, kind of looks like Kim and Kanye aren't real here, but are instead wax figures at Madame Tussauds.

When asked by reporters why he decided to wear the contacts, Kanye simply said, "Vibes." Duh. Why else would the rapper wear contacts? To see?

Overall, the feeling -- or, vibes -- toward Kanye's look doesn't seem to be positive. Most people think he looked like a vampire and we're not sure that's the look he was going for.

Regardless of everyone's opinion on Kanye's eyes (and ripped jeans and sparkly jacket), one thing is for certain: Kanye DGAF. Dude's gonna do what he wants and to hell with everyone else's opinion. He may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it's hard not to respect that about him. 

Let's all hope that this isn't a look that Kanye plans on repeating often, because let's be frank: It looks ridiculous. Kanye's a good-looking dude with his natural eye color. But hey, to bust out a pair of tinted Acuvues for a fancy night out on the town? Why not.
