Kanye West Wears A Red Ski Mask Because Even Rappers Get Cold

Kanye West — more specifically, the general area surrounding Kanye West’s eyes — was spotted in Paris, France on Wednesday night (January 23). The label-conscious rapper headed out in the freezing winter air to attend Maison Martin Margiela’s Paris Fashion Week show wearing a less-than-fashionable look: a bright red ski mask.

Unlike Jennifer Lopez, who paid no mind to the 25-degree NYC weather on Tuesday, Yeezy was not messing around. The 2013 Governors Ball performer completed his wintery “look” with a white shirt and slacks with a black coat draped over his shoulders like a cape.

It might not be the most stylish ensemble, but with the nasty influenza virus going around this year, we can’t blame ‘Ye for not wanting to end up chugging back that “Theraflu.” Besides, it’s nowhere near as much of a fashion “don’t” as the panda bear balaclava Lil Wayne wore to Drake‘s second Bar Mitzvah in “HYFR.”
