Kanye West recently signed 2 Nigerian artists to his G.O.O.D. Music label. One of them is D'banj, who, according to Upscale Hype, attended the 2011 BET Awards styled in a pair of Christian Louboutin Mika Raja flats ($2,395) from the Spring/Summer 2011 Collection. I would rather see a man dressed like D'banj than one dressed like those untamed beasts who roam the urban landscape with their pants hanging off their butts, like Lil Wayne and that ilk. We have to do better.

    I love the outfit and that jacket is the business! However I am not a fan of skinny jeans or slacks :no: How are the ballz going to breathe if they have them locked down like a chasity belt?

    @ Sandra

    lol @ untamed beasts who roam the urban landscape with their pants hanging off their butts, like Lil Wayne.

    I agree! I prefer a clean cut man, but that frill on his shirt, flower printed pants, and band tassels on his shoes arent doing it for me.

  • ohpretty1

    Ruffled shirts tickle me to no end, just reminds me of my parents prom pics. I do like his look though. A man can't go wrong getting his grown man on.

    the ones beneath me recognize the red bottoms i wear

  • TruGemini

    Nothing major...I mean he's not far from looking like a toned down Andre 3000 (and I loves me some Andre :heart: ). And while I definitely :cosign: with TY, I think he looks decent.

  • Destinee

    The outfit photographs well, but close up. I am not feeling the tassles on the shoes. All together it works!

  • laci

    Sandra,

    do you have a picture of him without his shades on?

  • laci

    he reminds me of Q Parker from 112

  • leapyearpisces

    Sandra,

    Sometimes your humor can actually be HUMUROUS, talking about Little Wayne and that ILK :rofl:...while I agree to the fullest neither do I want to see a man in some Peter Pan Slippers ...where is the happy medium? What happened to a nice button down and some chinos with a nice jacket and some Stacey Adams? :shrugs: and yes, I said Stacey Adams...LOL...this skinny jean revolution on men must stop. Its a no-go.

    But, yes, he does look very nice.

  • leapyearpisces

    @ Laci,

    Yes. These male celebrities are doing TOO much these days...and I understand couture and fine fashion, but some of that stuff needs to stay where it belongs..ON THE RUNWAY, because transcending it into real life does not work!!! LOL!!! I know Christian could not have made those shoes with a straight face.

  • leapyearpisces

    :rofl @ Laci and TY,

    TY, you aint neva lied...that heffa made a whole fashion house out of a Bedazzled gun...that bish was like go hard or go home!!! :rofl: Gotta love them Knowles, they go hard for what they believe in...LOL

  • Ty

    My coworker and I were having a discussion the other day about Hollyweird, an unfortunately 95% of celebrites are dressed by gay stylists. All of my gay friends(male) have extravegant taste, but Hollyweird stylist try too hard to be different and it comes across as just stupid. A perfect example is D Wade. He has been looking a HAM since the finals. Easter suits and all :no:

  • SunRiseBlossom

    His azz gone pass out with that velvet jacket on!!! It's HOT AS HELL... Trying to look "Cute"
    :rofl:

  • Tatted Diva

    :cosign: this fool went way PAST the happy medium & ended up all the way to the left. SMH.

  • pinksghetti

    Very stylish, the frill on the shirt isn't the best and not many men will wear it but Prince wore bigger frills in the 80's.

  • CFREE

    I dont know if i like his look or not.. im torn i want to like it and then i dont.. i cant decide :crying:

  • http://twitter.com/_imOther_ Mamacita

    I think he looks good! The shoes are doing a little too much but it's a big event. Gotta do it big!

    He's cute too. Well with the galsses on...need to see him take those off to be sure...

  • OSHH

    I agree with LeapYearPieces.

  • jazzyiest

    His whole outfit is hot! It's busy as he!! and that's what I love about it! I love people that think outside of the box. Those pants are the business might I add.

  • CFREE

    That 2nd pic, the biting of that lip.. ol boy kinda sexaayy ;)

  • CFREE

    And Im soooo glad he has on a bytch beater under that shirt i absolutely cannot stand when i see guys wearing dress shirts w/o under shirts! Uh! #petpeave :cuss:

    :lol:

  • laykeya

    The shoes are a no. And the pants and maybe the shirt or the jacket.

  • WUTWUZMISSIN!

    If the shirt wasn't so Fluffy and the pants were less "Nuthuggy" :shrug: then maybe I would say cute but it's a :no: for me...

  • CFREE

    :dead: @“Nuthuggy”

  • Fayla

    Sup Wifey?? :kiss:

  • Fayla

    Hey Wut witcho crazy azz :waves:

  • Fayla

    i hate those pants so much on him :mad:

  • WUTWUZMISSIN!

    Hey Fayla! :hi:

  • Melissa

    I too would rather see a GROWN MAN in a suit or dress pants with a belt on his WAIST not ASS! Leave the sagging to the little BOYZ! That blazer is definitely the business!

  • ELove

    So, So... So His Stylist KNEW it was going to be a GREEN Carpet :blink:

    That WHOLE Everything He's WEARING Lacks MASCULINITY from a Grown AZZ Male Perspective :coffee:

  • laykeya

    It's funny that nigs don't wanna dance anymore, but they wear "nuthuggy" pants. I'm confused.

  • DMisses

    I have yet to see a decent pair of Christian Louboutin's for men, it seems like they make cuter shoes for women than they do for men. I don't care how much it costs those shoes are horrid.

  • howmanylicks_07

    I'm surprised u not calling him out as a DL brutha yet Sandra.
