Yeezus Walks: About That Time Kanye Wore Socks and Too-Small Sandals to 2 Chainz' Wedding

Kanye lives to konfuse, y’all.

Always one to march to the beat of his own drum, last weekend your problematic fave marched himself into the Miami wedding of 2 Chainz and new bride Kesha Ward in an institutional-colored ensemble, wearing padded slides—and socks!—with his suit, which was strikingly worn sans shirt; his bare chest accessorized with several gold chains.


As if that wasn’t enough of a fashion statement, Kanye’s slides—which were by Yeezy, of course—appeared to be borrowed from wife Kim Kardashian, since they were a full two sizes too small.


And while we’d usually have questions, we don’t even know where to begin, because we’ve pretty much been rendered speechless.

Okay, here’s a question: How does one even begin to describe this look? It’s very Tony Montana-meets-tile-grout-meets-Florida retiree-chic, and frankly, it’s so deeply disturbing we might need the rest of the day off.

Also disturbing? Pausing for a photo op on the steps of Villa Casa Casuarina—better known as the Versace mansion—where the nuptials took place. We get it; Kim’s neon latex dress is a Versace creation. But grinning for the cameras while literally standing on the spot where Gianni Versace was shot and killed?


It’s perhaps the only thing sadder than Kanye’s outfit.
