Ladies and gents, meet November’s most controversial outfit.

Justin Bieber was the honored recipient of a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, a prestigious award honoring “contributions and achievements made by Canadians, who represent the full breadth of [Canada’s] society,” and it was presented to the Biebs by none other than the Canadian Prime Minister himself, Stephen Harper.

Justin’s attire for the auspicious occasion? A white tee, pinstripe coveralls with one strap undone, a chain necklace, and a backward baseball cap.

Harper, on the other hand, appeared quite distinguished in a bespoke black suit, a maroon tie, shiny black shoes, even a lapel pin.

Within minutes of Justin posting a photo of the encounter to Instagram, the Internet blew up with righteous indignation. Gawker called him the “White Trash Prince.” The Daily Mail asked “Would a suit hurt?”

Justin faced his critics on Instagram, explaining that he came from a meet-and-greet . (We’re not sure why anyone would even wear that to a meet-and-greet, but oh well.)

At least Harper was a good sport about it, tweeting, “In fairness to @justinbieber, I told him I would be wearing my overalls, too. #cdnpoli #beliebers.”

But what’s your take? Is Justin in the right to express himself in whatever questionable fashion he sees fit? Or should he have gussied up for such an occasion? Vote below!
