Kanye West Clothing Line Debuts In Paris

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.
