Is Kanye West styling Pete Davidson now?
On Monday, September 12, the “SNL” star made an unexpected appearance at the 2022 Emmys to present the award for Best Comedy Series, dressed in a low-key outfit that had a significant role in ex-Kim Kardashian’s past.
Davidson, 28, wore a gray Dickies “Eisenhower” jacket ($60) with matching gray pants and white sunglasses — an outfit that was nearly identical to one worn by West, 45.
In 2019, the rapper wore the same black jacket as then-wife Kardashian to the “Camp”-themed Met Gala. His understated look was an attempt to divert attention away from himself and toward the Skims founder, whose wet-looking Thierry Mugler dress and waist-whittling corset made her the talk of the night.
Her sexy look was a point of controversy for the couple, who fought about the dress on an episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” with West memorably telling her, “You are my wife, and it affects me when pictures are too sexy.”
“You built me up to be this sexy person and confidence and all this stuff, and just because you’re on a journey and transformation doesn’t mean I’m in the same spot with you,” Kardashian shot back at the time.
When Davidson accompanied Kim to the 2022 Met Gala several years later, the reality star was once again the center of attention, this time by borrowing Marilyn Monroe’s “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” dress for the night.
Perhaps Davidson’s Emmys ensemble was also a nod to the couple’s past. Kardashian bleached her hair platinum blond for the Met in an attempt to fully channel the “Some Like It Hot” star, and Davidson later followed suit with his own blond dye job.
Though he returned to brunette hair shortly after their split, the “King of Staten Island” flaunts a bleached ‘do at the awards show.
