Kanye West, and his rumored partner, Bianca Censori, caused quite a stir on social media with their unusual attire at a recent Sunday church service in Los Angeles. West, also known as ‘Ye,’ and Censori, an architectural designer, were reported to have participated in a non-legally binding ceremony in January.
West’s choice of attire included a black T-shirt equipped with shoulder pads, featuring the German term for “police”. His footwear appeared to be a pair of sole-less sock shoes. Meanwhile, Censori’s outfit was described as a black full-body stocking, including an oversized ring of fabric around her face and shoulders.
Social media users expressed bafflement and humor at the couple’s unconventional fashion choices. Some Twitter comments ranged from light-hearted jokes about the costumes resembling a “broken black condom” or “condom couture,” to more whimsical suggestions that the couple was dressing for a future where extraterrestrial forces dictate Earth’s dress code.
On Reddit, a thread titled “What on earth is happening here?” mirrored the bewilderment seen on Twitter. Some users humorously suggested West had borrowed from his ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s shapewear range, Skims, while Censori’s outfit was referred to as a “cocoon of sadness.”
Regardless of the ridicule, a few Twitter users found a silver lining, suggesting that the couple’s eccentric style could serve as a reminder that no one is truly alone in their quirks.
West is currently embroiled in a legal dispute with former teachers from his private Christian school, Donda Academy. Furthermore, reports of disorder and internal strife have emerged from his prospective 2024 presidential campaign. Thus, the online criticism of his sartorial preferences may be the least of his concerns at this time.
