No jeans at the Met Gala! That’s at least what fans had to say after Kanye West showed up sporting a pair of destroyed jeans to the prestigious fashion ball. In fact, they totally trashed Ye for his too-casual look — see some of the tweets here!
Kanye West is getting some heat for his 2016 Met Gala outfit! Amidst dapper suits and dazzling gowns, Yeezy sported some ripped jeans to the fashion affair, and the fan reaction was not so positive. The 38-year-old rapper was bashed on Twitter for his dressed-down ensemble! Do you think he deserved such backlash?
As soon as Kanye and Kim Kardashian hit the Met red carpet, fans immediately took to social media to call out Kanye for dressing down (especially compared to his wife). While some fans simply questioned his choice of jeans for such a dressy affair, others wrote that he looked “stupid” and “awful.” One even declared that Anna Wintour should lock him in a bathroom because of his outfit!
Considering Kanye rocked a super classy velvet suit to last year’s Met Gala, surely fans were a bit surprised to see him take such a different route with his outfit just one year later. They had no problem expressing their disappointment with his casual ensemble, either! Check out some of the tweets below:

Kanye West, just because your jeans are expensive doesn't mean they are appropriate formal attire

Naturally Kanye wears jeans to the met. He wants to be the "outlaw". He's a walking unpopular opinion.

As if his jeans weren’t enough of a conversation starter, Kanye also changed up his eye color for the Met Gala — and it wasn’t a subtle change! He wore colored contacts to swap his dark brown eyes for a pair of bright blue peepers, which also had the fans talking. Kanye may not have been considered the best dressed of the night, but clearly he was a major talking point!
What do you think of Kanye’s ripped jeans look, HollywoodLifers? Should he have dressed up a little more for the Met Ball? Tell us below!
