Is Kanye West styling Pete Davidson?

In 2019, the rapper accompanied then-wife Kardashian to the “Camp”-themed Met Gala, wearing a jacket in black. He looked low-key on purpose to draw attention away from himself and toward Kim, whose wet-looking Thierry Mugler dress and corset were the talk of the night.

The pair clashed about the dress in a Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode over her seductive appearance. Kanye West is remembered for telling her, “You are my wife, and it affects me when pictures are too sexy.”

At the Emmy awards in 2022, Davidson, 28, completed the ensemble with a pair of his characteristic sunglasses. He was wearing a charcoal gray unlined Eisenhower Jacket from Dickies and matching gray slacks. It was his first public appearance after his breakup with Kim in August 2022.

Maybe Davidson’s appearance at the Emmys was a tribute to the couple’s history. In an attempt to completely embody the “Some Like It Hot” diva for the Met, Kardashian dyed her hair platinum blond. Davidson then imitated the look with a blond dye job of his own. The comedian has been the subject of the rapper’s most recent Instagram postings after West made fun of Davidson in one of his posts for seeking “trauma treatment.” However, he wiped out all his posts after that.
