For someone who considers themselves a fashion genius, Kanye West sure does dress himself up like my grandpa a lot. Case in point: Kanye and Kim Kardashian attended 2 Chainz wedding this weekend and Kanye wore open toed slippers. Yep. He wore slippers to a fucking wedding.
The only place in the WORLD wearing slippers to a wedding is acceptable is maybe a retirement complex in Florida and the Goulds here in Newfoundland (don’t even get me started).
When Kanye’s not busy dressing Kim Kardashian as the reigning Queen of Lot Lizards circa 1992, he’s dressing himself up as me when I went to the hospital to give birth to my second kid. All sweat pants and slide on slippers. And, much like myself, Kanye CLEARLY picked up the wrong size slipper, because those things are way too small for him.
That being said, when I bought slippers for the hospital they were $5 and I didn’t try them on first. Kanye is wearing Yeezy slippers that he designed and probably cost like $500. As the designer, you’d think he’d be able to get the right sized pair.
A lot offends me about Kanye’s wedding look. First of all, 2 Chainz and his new bride throw themselves this beautiful, fancy wedding, and Kanye fucking West shows up in fucking slippers, like he couldn’t even be bothered to put on an actual fucking shoe. Secondly, I’m sick and fucking tired of Kanye West acting like he’s this next level fashion guru for doing shit like pairing a Louis Vuitton suit with some ugly ass grandpa slippers. Kanye’s out here dressing Kim as a well-paid 90’s pornstar and himself as 72-year-old white man looking for a game of shuffleboard at an upscale retirement community, and acting like he’s the most innovative thing to happen to fashion since Coco fucking Chanel.
Kanye West is just like a more pretentious American Apparel (you read that right. I said MORE pretentious): he’s just releasing a bunch of basic clothes that’s been around for fucking ever and then charging an arm and a leg for it in the name of fashion. American Apparel went bankrupt, so hopefully Kanye soon realizes he needs to give this shit up soon as well.
