What's That Jacket, Margiela? Kanye's Not-So-Stylish Sound Bite

comments



We all have moments in our past that we're not exactly proud of, most of which include the mistakes we made in the wardrobe department. Thankfully, our photographic proof is buried within a shoe box at the back of our closets, never to see the light of day. Not so lucky: Kanye West. Thanks to a video that just surfaced on the 'net, it looks like Mr. West may be regretting some former sartorial choices, specifically those nerdy frames and unfortunate facial hair — yep, Yeezy was a total dweeb back in the day.

The clip, which was filmed during Jermaine Dupri's birthday party circa 1998, features an interview with West pre-College Dropout, meaning no swag in sight. Seriously, the dude's chewing gum during an on-camera Q&A, big no-no! And where are the designer duds? Fingers crossed he's just wearing a Lanvin $1,000 T-shirt with no logos.

Talk about a time warp — this totally serves as a reminder that even the coolest cats make mistakes. It's hard to imagine the NYFW front-row fixture before he became a designer, a VIP on the fashion party circuit, or even before he wore Céline at Coachella. Take a peek at the clip above (specifically the 1:53 minute mark), and tell us: If you could rewind and erase one of your own style slipups, what would it be? (Buzzfeed)
