I first noticed the new popularity of red pants at the Independent Fashion Bloggers conference in February. Soon they were on so many bloggers that I put a red-pants slideshow together for the Huffington Post. At that point, I remembered that I’d grown up watching male rockers on MTV jumping around in tight red pants. Now things seem to have come full circle, and, once again, red pants are the uniform of choice for dudes in the music business. I noticed them at Lollapalooza earlier this month, they were well-represented at last night’s MTV VMAs by a variety of guys. Wearing the look were teenybopper panty-wetter Justin Bieber …
… Sky Blu from party band LMFAO …
… and rapper Pitbull.
The Biebs got bonus fashion-trend points. Take another look at his picture and you’ll see he’s clutching his pet snake (named “Johnson,” he said). So that’s the snakeskin trend. And his gal pal, Selena Gomez, wore a mullet dress.
Nice fashion-trend hat-trick, Bieber. In recognition of your efforts, I’ll refrain from commenting on the glasses and gold chains.
