A year after Kanye's controversial moment with Taylor Swift, he graced the stage and redeemed himself with a stirring performance that showed guilty self-awareness and musical genius at the same time. This custom Phillip Lim suit would make multiple appearances during many My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy performances, including his seminal appearance on SNL, where for the first time, the show's musical backdrop was rendered in stark white instead of the usual black.

Kanye had said that his aim was to be the next Michael Jackson. The red-on-red outfit was a definite homage to the King of Pop, and further cemented West as a true hip-hop icon.
