Kanye West’s second fashion show, held in Paris this week, was met with some disdain from critics. Wallstreet Journal style critic Christina Binkley accused Kanye of ripping off Givenchy’s style. Daily Mail writer Liz Jones criticized Kanye West’s use of astrakhan, a special type of lamb’s fur, and inclusion of alligator leather in his collection. Another “fail” according to critics? The fact that West used only two black models.
Let Kanye be great.
Yeezy had the support of his industry peers, including Sean “Diddy” Combs, Cassie, Alicia Keys, Shyne Po, Andre Leon Tally, Common, Swizz Beatz, Waka Flocka Flame and Rosario Dawson. Manhattan “it girl” Shala Monroque and American Vogue editor Anna Wintour were also in attendance.
Kim Kardashian’s appearance also fueled rumors that she and West are a couple.
