NBA player, Ron Artest, was seen at last night’s “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” premiere in Los Angeles, waving to fans and signing autographs. Is this part of Artest’s celebration of the Lakers’ recent NBA Championship win? Or is Artest really a diehard Twilight fan? The world may never know.

One thing we can know is what Ron Artest wore to the premiere. Let’s break down the 6’7” forward’s red carpet look.

Artest was wearing a bright yellow KT33 Hoodie ($150) and matching Konvict Core t-shirt ($65) with purple trim, from the Konvict line of apparel, both available on the Konvict Apparel website. The ensemble was totally Lakers appropriate. Red carpet appropriate? Eh. I’ll let him slide on that one.

I’m not sure why Artest felt the need to wear the hoodie up. Cold head? Covering a bad haircut?

He accessorized the look with various ladies on his arm, including LA Film Festival director, Rebecca Yeldham, and Film Independent direct Dawn Hudson.
