At Wednesday night's 12-12-12 benefit concert for Hurricane Sandy victims, Kanye West stepped out from the shadows of being Kim Kardashian's boyfriend and seemingly raided her closet for a stage costume that consisted of a leather skirt and leggings.

And everyone lost their collective fecal matter.

What's ironic is it's not even the stupidest thing he's ever worn. There's this. And this. Oh, and don't forget this.

But those were boy outfits (sort of), and this was a girl outfit. Because everyone outside of Scotland knows that only chicks wear skirts. Except they kind of don't. The New York Times has been trying to make man-skirts happen for years now -- albeit with little success.

Anyway, if you've heard about West's weird outfit but haven't seen it, we have a few photos below (it even has its own Twitter account). We just ask that you keep a little perspective. It's not like Rihanna went out fully clothed or anything. That would be something to talk about.
