Because Kanye West couldn’t possibly wear a tuxedo, like every other A-list male on the red carpet at the Met Gala, he decided to wear jeans. Interpreting “Tech White Tie” to mean fancy jacket, white T-shirt, ripped denim jeans, and suede boots, the rapper was the most underdressed person at the event on Monday night.
While his wife, Kim Kardashian West, was going for “blingy, sexy robot” — which she actually kind of achieved, in a silver Balmain gown — Kanye went a more zoological route.
The Life of Pablo artist, who has naturally brown eyes, slipped in some blue contacts for the evening to match his light-wash denim jacket from Balmain, embellished with sequins and crystals. When asked by E! News what look he was going for, all he said was, “Vibes.”
This isn’t the first time West has worn the colored contacts. Kim posted a photo last year of Kanye wearing the contacts, captioning the pic “Wolves.”
When the Wests got to the Gala, though, they morphed into a different animal.
