- Fox News zeroed in on a tweet that said, "Kanye must have swapped suitcases with Kim Kardashian."

- Refinery29 points out that the skirt has made plenty of prior stage appearances on the Watch the Throne tour, and it's kinda exempt from criticism because, "It's fashion, and the skirt is kind of Yeezy's thing...and it is Riccardo Tisci, anyways."

- @JaredLeto managed to poke fun at himself in his critique of the look:

- The Huffington Post says West is "clearly in touch with his feminine side."  Ba dum bum.

- According to StyleCaster, "the star of the night was arguably Kanye West and his pleated leather Givenchy skirt."

- The Today Show seconds that with this headline: "Kanye West's leather skirt steals the show at Sandy benefit."

- As for the only opinion that really matters, @KimKardashian, she approved:












What do you gals think of all of this chatter about the skirt? I'm feeling kinda "really!?" about the whole thing...it's just a dude in a skirt! Haven't any of those concert watchers ever seen Marc Jacobs!? Discuss!

    8 wardrobe staples to buy now that will only get better with age

    Three summers ago, I bought a pair of soft, white-calfskin Chanel loafers. I spent months trying to keep them pristine, but it wasn’t long before a July thunderstorm left them and me soaked. I began steeling myself for what I thought was inevitable: a solemn drop in the trash. But once the loafers dried, I found the shoes’ stained stitching—now storm-cloud gray—was lovely and a few new wrinkles in the leather were charming, like smile lines for shoes. I started to wear them freely—taking on puddles and tossing them onto the sand at the beach—and before long, they transformed. The roughened toe-tops reminded me of a welcoming, worn armchair, and a wet-and-hot summer had molded the material perfectly to my feet.
