Kobe how my blush taste??
No, that's not Grace Jones posing in a brand new ad for her perfume "Strange". That is noneother than Kobe Bryant. Yes, Kobe the Clutch, Kobe the Assassin, Kobe the "I can pull off Capri pants"?? Give the style department at LA Times Magazine some credit. They could have went with a run of the mill photoshoot, with Kobe donning a Home Jersey & then switching it up to a Lakers warmup outfit with breakaway pants. But no, the LA Times Magazine creative brass wanted to make it memorable, and whomever came up with this emsemble deserves a raise, or at least should be able to keep the outfits. I would've loved to see what Kobe's reaction was when he showed up to the shoot/interview and they proceeded to tell him, "Yeah Kobe, today we're gonna go for an Amish Tranny look. You can head over to the makeup chair now. Oh, and don't bang your fingers on anything. You seem to break one of them every week!" Now, to the untrained eye, these outfits appear to be daring, original, & thought provoking. But I do my homework people, and Kobe's getup is nothing more than a new version of Dr. Dre's party dress from his days with the World Class Wreckin' Cru. Ain't nothin' but a G Thang baby!!
