How weird is it that, like, four days ago we found ways to cop Lil’ Wayne’s performance style for ladies and then Weezy turns up to the 2011 VMAs in WOMEN’S PANTS?! It’s like he’s reading our blog or something (I see you lookin’ at me, Weezy. Hayyyy) and wants to make it incredibly easy for us! His leopard pants were soo spot on (heh) that we were already mega-eyeballing them during the show on Sunday night. Luckily, you can grab these fierce Tripp NYC leopard pants for only $44 (boys: buy two sizes up to sag like him). I mean, it’s no surprise that we’re loving Lil’ Wayne’s performance outfit—he always finds a way to wear cop-worthy (and attractive!) clothes onstage. He paired his leopard pants with a Louis Vuitton belt, rhinestone-studded red Vans, blue Polo Ralph Lauren undies, and neon pink and studded bracelets. Remember though, he’s not the first rapper to sport women’s clothing—we’ll never let Kanye live down wearing that Celine blouse to Coachella. But both rappers MUST be doing something right since they’re both on the road to releasing their first fashion lines. Hmm. If more dudes started wearing ladies duds we’d have fashion designers budding up EVERYWHERE. Get to it, guys.
