The 46-year-old rap artist and style tycoon, Kanye West, has sparked a furor with recent posts on Instagram showcasing his spouse, Bianca Censori. West posted daring photographs of Censori, whom he wedded in December 2022, modeling a revealing black swimsuit.
The initial picture, a reflection self-portrait, displayed West in the backdrop with Censori in the forefront donning the small bikini peak combined with a leather waist corset, a trench coat, and high-heeled boots. The second photograph portrayed Censori solo in a marbled bathroom, and the third revealed her in a black minimal thong and fuzzy pink bandeau.
While West didn’t add any caption to the first picture, he inscribed “Dropped sumn?” adjacent to the second image and “No pants this year” with the third. The posts have sparked censure on social media, with numerous users expressing disapproval of the imagery and drawing parallels between Censori and West’s former spouse, Kim Kardashian.

This is not the first occasion West has been engaged in public debates regarding the representation of women. Earlier, he has expressed apprehensions about the imagery employed in Kardashian’s line of undergarments and attire, as well as her public appearances. West has articulated unease about what he interprets as excessively sexualized imagery, relating his role as a spouse and father as shaping his perspectives.
Kardashian, who has four offspring with West, has previously championed her public persona, emphasizing that West had contributed to strengthening her self-assurance and identity.
