It seems Pete Davidson is still taking style cues from Kim Kardashian – and so is Kanye West. The “Bodies Bodies Bodies” star made a surprise appearance during the Sept. 12 Emmys, and her outfit seemed to be inspired by both her famous ex-girlfriend and her ex-husband.
Presenting the award for Outstanding Comedy Series onstage at the Microsoft Theater, Davidson wore a gray Dickies zip-up jacket and matching pants — a decidedly low-key getup compared to the flashy dresses and suits worn by the other attendees. As viewers on social media were quick to point out, West wore the exact same black dress while attending the 2019 Met Gala with his then-wife, Kardashian, who wore a crystal-dripping, body-hugging Mugler design. Seeing as Davidson is the king of jokes, it’s not too far-fetched to assume this was his own way of giving West a taste of his own medicine after the rapper repeatedly mocked him online earlier this year.
To thicken the plot, Davidson styled her monochrome awards-show outfit with futuristic white-rimmed sunglasses that looked straight out of Kardashian’s accessories collection. (It’s worth noting that they could have also given a nod to the restaurant’s favorite form of Guy Fieri’s eye protection, but that homage seems a bit less likely.) She finished off the look with white-and-silver dad sneakers — a footwear choice all her own.
Kardashian’s fashion sense took a noticeably more casual, experimental turn during her whirlwind nine-month relationship with Davidson. The Schemes founder and the comedian have been spotted wearing coordinating sportswear at various events, including the matching sweatpants they wore after attending the Met Gala together in May.
Shortly after her split with Kardashian in August, Davidson was spotted on set in a graphic T-shirt that read “What… So was the comedian’s Emmys outfit another dig at his former flame, or just a sarcastic coincidence? It’s up to Davidson and Take a look at both of West’s Dickies.
