Kanye West, Paris Fashion Week: Rapper Unveils New Collection, Kim Kardashian Shows Up
When it comes to fashion, Kanye West‘s beautiful, dark, twisted fantasy involves furs, tall boots and plenty of leather. Last night (March 6) in Paris, where Fashion Week is in full swing, Yeezy unveiled his fall/winter ready-to-wear collection, sharing his creations with a roomful of entertainment heavies.
Musicians on hand included Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Diddy, Cassie, Shyne and Common, Rap-Up reports. After the models finished their sashaying, Azealia Banks, Mos Def, Waka Flocka Flame and DJ A-Track took to the stage, performing as folks rode around in go-karts. Kim Kardashian even showed up, wearing the pricey Giuseppe Zanotti heels that West designed with the fashion house.
This was Kanye’s second runway foray, and while he got less-than-stellar reviews for his first show back in October, he seems to have fared better this time.
As MTV reports, Christina Brinkley from the Wall Street Journal deemed the show “a massive improvement,” while hip-hop personality Miss Info said the “dark haute-goth” pieces represented “better planning, better execution, and vastly better fittings.”
