Kanye West made quite the statement Monday night by wearing colored contacts at the biggest fashion event of the year.

As you might saw on our twitter last night, the biggest fashion event of the year was held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City last night for the 2016 Met Gala, and boy were the stars in attendance. From your favorite athletes to artists, the event was represented well by the hip-hop & urban culture, with Beyonce, Future, Nas, Wiz Khalifa, Nicki Minaj, The Weeknd, Ciara, and Kanye West among many others all stepping on the red carpet.

This year’s theme of the event was “Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology,” which saw every person in attendance showing off their ridiculously priced designer outfits & personal styles. However, the one who arguably made the biggest splash of the night was ironically dressed the simplest, and that being Kanye West, who caught everyone’s attention with ripped jeans & colored contacts.

Rocking his favorite designer BALMAIN, Kanye tossed on a bedazzled jacket, a pair of ripped jeans, and threw in what looks to be blue contacts in his eyes, making a statement that when he was asked about the contacts on the red carpet, he simply replied "Vibes" in true Kanye fashion.
