Ooooohkay…? Kanye West was just a little underdressed in a beige sweatshirt on the MTV VMAs red carpet. He posed with wife Kim Kardashian for the world to see, and we can’t help but think that Kanye is dissing the VMAs by dressing so sloppily!
Kanye West, 38, and Kim Kardashian, 34, were one of the most high-profile couples at the MTV VMAs on Aug. 30 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. With great power comes great responsibility…to kill it on the red carpet — which Kim definitely did, in a brown floor-length gown — but Kanye, not so much. It’s so sweet that he held Kim’s hand as they walked into the theater, but would it kill him to put a little effort into his outfit for such a huge night?
Kanye West is a music powerhouse and fashion designer — but the latter was not really apparent tonight. He dressed down in a khaki-colored tee-shirt and matching sweatshirt and cargo pants, looking more like he was on his way to a safari than a giant awards show. Plain sneakers completed the ensemble. Kanye is notoriously uncaring, but this may be a record for the most casual red carpet look ever. At least he matched Kim, who was also in brown.
Kimye aside, tonight is a Kardashian-studded affair, with Kourtney, Kylie and Kris also walking the carpet. Like her brother-in-law, Kylie opted to wear beige, too. It must be said: at least the Kardashians are koordinated. Kourtney wore a bright magenta jumpsuit, while Kris vamped it up in a black dress with a deep v-neck and criss-crossing straps across the chest.
