One of the big moments of last night’s 12/12/12 Concert for Sandy Relief — for Twitter, at least — was Kanye West’s leather skirt. Peeps couldn’t stop talking about it. Yet, it was also the subject of much chatter and news coverage last year when Kanye wore what looks like the same skirt for his Watch the Throne tour with Jay-Z.
What’s up with the fashion amnesia? Do we have to be shocked — SHOCKED! — all over again if he wears the skirt next year too? Try some ginseng, y’all. To me, this is as much of a fashion scandal as Usher’s neon sneakers.
I’d also be happy if everyone retired the Kanye West/Kim Kardashian/gold digger jokes. Whatever you may think of her, (a) she’s got money of her own and (b) you’re not the first one to make that joke!
