Kanye at Coachella vs. Céline on the runway

Hip hop phenomenon Kanye West put on one of the most talked about performances at Coachella. He had an incredible entrance, performed tons of his hit songs, and he even wore women’s clothing.

Yes, you read that right.

For his performance, the star wore a shirt straight from the Céline Spring 2011 runway.

Everyone knows that Kanye is fashion obsessed. He is always spotted wearing trendy outfits and he even makes frequent appearances at Fashion Week.

However, he’s now conquered a whole new aspect of the fashion world by rocking clothing meant for the opposite gender.

While other celebrities looked great at the festival, Kanye easily takes the cake for best dressed. He paired the Céline shirt with jeans, a chunky gold necklace, and an armful of bracelets.

Gender bending has been a subject of controversy lately, especially over the notorious J. Crew ad. So, it’s pretty cool that Kanye got up on stage and completely disregarded traditional gender boundaries.

He clearly wasn’t worried about what critics would say, and instead focused on wearing what he likes. In fact, he even mentioned Céline creative director Phoebe Philo on the track “Dark Fantasy,” so he’s clearly a fan of this label.

Fashion is all about creating your own rules and feeling comfortable in what you’re wearing. Kanye did just this and hopefully inspired others to defy traditional fashion boundaries and to create their own.
