Live from Paris: Here’s Kanye! Shoot-From-The-Lip Rap star and style aficionado Kanye West unveiled his highly anticipated womenswear line in front of a star-packed crowd during a Paris Fashion Week runway show in the City of Lights on Saturday. Yep, you heard right: Kanye’s finally made the transition from the front row to backstage after becoming a runway fixture at a bevy of international fashion shows in recent years.
“I had a lot of ideas about colors and shapes I wanted to express … I’m really happy where I ended up,” the Watch the Throne hitmaker remarked nervously as he spoke to reporters after the presentation.
Celebrities — including singer Ciara, designers Joseph Altuzarra, Alexander Wang, and Olivier Theyskens, actress Lindsay Lohan, and fellow celebrity designers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen — turned out for West’s show, which was hands-down the premier event on the Paris Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2012 calendar. In fact, Ciara was full of praise for West’s fashion debut.
“To see someone like Kanye, who aspires to succeed in fashion, to get so much respect and cross over like this, it was monumental.”
