Rapper Kanye West arrived to Maison Martin Mariela’s Paris Haute Couture show on Wednesday sporting a white suit, long trench coat, and a bright red ski mask. Well, at least he was actually invited this time.
This isn’t the first time Kim Kardashian’s baby-daddy has rocked a mask covering his entire mug. During a 75-minute performance, he wore two different masks; one, a crystal-encrusted Margiela design, the other, a speculated feathery abominable snowman.
Hotheaded rapper Kanye West got shut out of several runway shows at Paris fashion week after turning up uninvited.
Though the fashion-obsessed rapper attended Valentino, Givenchy and Vivienne Westwood shows this week, he was not invited to Alexander McQueen, Balmain and Louis Vuitton, and defiantly faced off with organizers several times — most of them unsuccessfully– for access.
Last Thursday, West tried to get into the Balmain runway show at Le Grand Hotel, but was denied entry with his entourage. A source said he then snuck off to “a separate part of the hotel, so people didn’t see him” after he was rejected.
A rep for Balmain show organizer KCD explained to Page Six, “Mr. West requested to attend and we let him know we would not be able to accommodate him. He chose to come to the door anyway and we kindly let him know we could not accommodate him.”
