Soaring Above Coachella In Celine

West's Coachella 2011 performance was an unforgettable tour de force that included everything from gravity-mocking stunts on cranes to the rapper sporting a billowing, instantly recognizable blouse from Parisian label Celine. A few fans sneered and offered a low-level "cross-dresser" mots, but the true style intelligentsia understood the brilliance of this sartorial maneuver. Why would Kanye address boundaries like gender dress codes? If anything, the colorful, "ethnic" printed shirt suited him better than any of the model's on Celine's runway. Besides - Phoebe Philo, the label's design director, and the rapper already share a special rapport. West has even lyrically immortalized her in his song "Dark Fantasy," and presented her with a CFDA award. She's a contemporary design pioneer; he's a forward-thinking man. What's not to love? Let the thoroughly modern union commence.
