Last night the highly anticipated–and infamous–Met Gala went down with a bang! We saw more celebrities and high fashion than we could handle. Beyonce, Katy Perry, Claire Dane, Solange, Kerry Washington, Idris Elba, Lady Gaga, and so many more slayed the Red Carpet repeatedly! Although it is agreed Clair Dane’s glowing gown stole the show, it is Kanye West’s new look–or eyes–that have become the talk of the town.
As you can see Yeezus’ eyes are blue, thanks to what we hope are contacts. Kanye and his wife, Kim Kardashian, showed up at the Gala rocking a metallic motif for her dress and his outfit. Now, neither of these looks, steal the top ten of the best dressed for that night, but Kanye’s eyes definitely do not help their case. As you may recall, colored contacts were all the rave of the late nineties and early 2000s. Hazel green, gray, and blue eyes thanks to colored contacts were the norm for many women and some men. With the way the fashion from the eighties and nineties is making a comeback; it is no surprise that colored contacts could be back too.
Still, the question is are those contacts? Recently, Tiny and her daughter, Zonnique, had their eye color permanently changed thanks to a controversial new study. Both got gray eyes. Did Yeezy follow suit? His eyes definitely resemble a number of people who have gotten the surgery. Although they expected baby blue, they got an almost vampire-like gaze. All we know is in the age of natural beauty and pro-blackness among many African-Americans, this just does not sit well as a good look for the rap star. Kim, however, seems to love it as she is seen on Instagram licking his face. Did the Kardashians finally get to Kanye too? We will keep you posted. Check out a video on the procedure to permanently change your eye color below.
