A flair for drama, a history of verbal tussles with fellow stars, a love of fashion — maybe ice skater Johnny Weir and hip-hop superstar Kanye West have more in common than one might think! Certainly, their sartorial interests aligned during N.Y.C. fashion week as they both turned up at shows in the past several days sporting hot pink blazers. Kanye picked his sleek pink jacket for a day of shows, ranging from Tory Burch’s presentation in the morning to 3.1 Phillip Lim’s womens show in the evening. As for Weir, he turned up the next day in his fuchsia blazer at the Isaac Mizrahi show, but he paid homage to a different designer entirely with his Karl Lagerfeld cartoon T-shirt slipped underneath his raccoon-adorned jacket. Although we think both Johnny and Kanye wore the hue well, who do you think successfully pulled off pink? Tell us: Who wears his pink blazer better? Kanye West or Johnny Weir? –Jessie Goldberg
