Multi-award-winning luxury designer Rich Mnisi set Twitter ablaze this week after someone shared an image of him in a miniskirt to the Twitter timeline; the image had originally been posted on Mnisi's Instagram page. The outfit eventually sparked a contentious conversation around men and skirts.

In the image, Mnisi is seen wearing a brown pleated miniskirt with a brown belt, a Gucci pullover thrown over a powder blue shirt, a Christian Dior saddlebag and white socks with sneakers. 

While some took on a more negative outlook on the outfit - with one Twitter user (@MbongiThe) writing: “Why [are people] praising Rich Mnisi for this nonsense”, many expressed admiration towards Mnisi for his constant ability to pull any item of clothing off. More than anything, many were envious off his beautiful, long legs.

Mnisi took to his Instagram Stories to address the negative comments. 

“I took a nap and woke up to my phone going off ‘cause some peeps are pressed,” he wrote. 

“I’m glad my Sunday look helped you confront your demons. You need to investigate what your anger is really about.” 

It’s safe to say that he looked unambiguously hot, and his legs quickly became a topic for many Twitter users.
