He looks comfy enough for Doritos on the couch and she looks like a piece of furniture being strapped down inside a moving truck. Par for the course.

The New York Daily News called us last night for some reactions to the sartorial madness on display at this event, but we found we simply couldn’t work up the outrage over Kanye’s casualness. This is the VMAs, after all. And he was being presented with the major award of the night. In an instance like this one, we’d say Kim was wildly overdressed; not that Kanye was underdressed. And unlike when two co-workers appear in public to promote a mutual project and the male half is dressed for a Home Depot run, we don’t tend to get as upset when couples show up doing it. In the latter case, this was clearly a choice on both their parts. After all, they got dressed and left the house together, so presumably there was way more coordinating than one would expect from co-stars. If Kim wants to stand there, shoved into yet another baby-poo-colored dress that should never double as maternity wear while her husband wears leather sweatpants and a sweater suitable for PMS days (of which we’re sure he has many), then that’s the lady’s choice and we suppose we should respect it.

After all, she will be the First Lady of the United States come 2021.
