They might be the most controversial celebrities of the here and now, but they sure do have style….
Not so long ago rapper (designer, fashion icon, artist, self-proclaimed Yeezus) Kanye West caused a bit of a stir in the wake of his new music video. The ‘Bound2’ video was directed by Vogue photographer Nick Knight and the highly anticipated shoot was said to have a lot of political undertones. The world waited with baited breath until the video was finally featured on the Ellen Degeneres Show and boy, were we in for a surprise!
The now internet-famous video shows Kanye riding a dirt bike in front of a green screen which is projected with scenic shots of America’s landscape and his nude fiance, reality star Kim Kardashian straddling him. Much jiggling ensued.
Then came the internet backlash. Then came the parody video…
Last week this escalated when Kanye compared his baby daughter North to the worlds favorite royal Kate Middleton.
Quite understandably, people thought Yeezy and his lady were completely crazy; one did indeed have to question whether this saucy couple had lost the plot…
Yet the famous pair are no strangers to controversy so one we at B Sunglasses had to wonder whether the aim of the game all along was to get people talking. Kanye famously interrupted pop-star Taylor Swift at the MTV awards in 2009, telling her Beyonce deserved to win her award and ‘Ye is regularly heard making outlandish statements… though perhaps the less said about those the better! Meanwhile lucky Kim has dodged a sex tape scandal, a brief and highly publicized marriage (followed by divorce) and regularly flaunts her private life on television show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’.
Despite what some might perceive as short-comings, the pair have sky-rocketed to become the most famous duo on the planet – not to mention the most stylish. With front row seats to every show at fashion week, Kimye are having the last laugh. Kanye regularly collaborates with designers and has been spotted chatting to Chanel CEO Karl Lagerfield on numerous occasions whilst Kim rarely strays from the Best Dressed lists.
So whether you love or loathe these two, their style is certainly one to envy.
