Kanye West is clearly in touch with his feminine side. He designs a high-end women's clothing collection, single handedly transformed his girlfriend Kim Kardashian's wardrobe and enjoys rocking a skirt every now and then. And that's exactly what Kanye did last night when he hit the stage for the 12-12-12 benefit concert in New York City.
The outspoken rapper performed in a black leather Givenchy skirt layered over a pair of tight leather pants (or perhaps, meggings?) for the event that benefited the Robin Hood Fund for Hurricane Sandy victims. Although this isn't the first time Kayne has donned the womenswear staple, the nationally televised concert helped share his unique sartorial pick with a reported 2 billion people.
With that said, Twitter was set on fire with stunned commenters. Here are some of the gems:
Can everyone please take a moment of silence in honor of Kanye's skirt?

Was Kanye's leather skirt part of the new Kardashian Kollection at Sears?

Everyone keeps tweeting about Kanye's leather skirt, but let's not ignore the leggings underneath.

And like anything that fascinates the public to this extent, Kanye's skirt promptly got it's own Twitter account. Yup, you can now keep up with the famous garment by simply following @KanyesSkirt. Silly or scary? We're a bit frightened.
