PHOTOS: Kanye West Was The King Of Red Leather On SNL
In case you missed it, Kanye West crushed it as the musical guest on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live. In a break from the typical performance set up, West gave the SNL set a complete makeover, whiting out the stage and filling it with white-clad backup dancers. But while the songs were certainly show stoppers, we couldn’t help but notice West’s red leather suit ensemble. Yes, he was wearing a suit made entirely of red leather.
West wore something similar when he performed at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, but on Saturday, he stepped things up a notch. The look was monochromatic fire engine red, all leather (apart from the matching t-shirt), and topped with about 9234978342 layered gold chains. (We tried to count them but it started hurting out eyes.)
We’re staunch defenders of West’s passion for fashion, but can’t quite wrap our heads around this look. We kind of wish he’d mixed things up a bit more from his VMA look. What do you think?
