Kanye West's Masks For His Yeezus Tour Certainly Bring the Bling

Kanye West Yeezus Tour MasksSplash News Online

No, Kanye West isn’t trying on different Halloween looks or preparing for an impossible game of peekaboo with baby North. The masks you see above are key elements of his Yeezus tour, which kicked off in Seattle Saturday night.

Most of the opening performance was business as usual — he brought out a man dressed as Jesus and wore some seriously amazing shoes — but there was a new element to West’s style that is either super-cool or super-spooky, depending on your preference for seeing someone’s face while they sing to you.

West’s outfits were all exclusively reinterpreted from the Maison Martin Margiela archives just for the Yeezus tour as part of a collaboration between the haute Parisian design house and the rapper. A press release touted the mirrored, marble, crystal and “black gems” veils, as well as an embroidered bomber jacket, printed pants and blanket coat to go with the fashion-obsessed star’s exclusive high-tech custom kicks.

Perhaps West and love Kim Kardashian must remain in constant style balance, and so while she takes some time off to kick it in jorts, West has to up his high-fashion game considerably. Or maybe he’s hoping to get this trend off the ground before the holidays. Whatever the reason for West’s new mask obsession, one thing’s for sure: He certainly can’t be accused of being predictable.

What do you think of West’s latest look? Do you have a particular favorite veil?

Instead of writing a story on what he is wearing on tour, why don’t you write a story on why his tour date in Vancouver last night? The fans received just a few hours notice….that’s the real story, not these masks!

Sorry that should read – why his tour date in Vancouver was CANCELLED last night. Guess I’m still as annoyed as I was when I heard last night!

YUCK! He is getting creepier by the day. Maybe he should try living in the future instead of the past. I feel he likes to keep racism front and center.

Well he’s covered his face, now if he would just shut up it would all be fine.
