A few years ago, Hammer pants — also known as harem pants — became a truly disturbing fashion trend on the runways. Celebrities everywhere started wearing them, in all sorts of colors, patterns, and volumes. But while MC Hammer himself said in 2009 that he’s distancing himself from the pants, practically every celebrity in recent memory has worn them, in public, in front of cameras, gleaming with confidence (why?). In honor of Mr. Hammer’s 50th birthday today, I graded some celebrity attempts to do for the pants what the man did himself.
