Paris Fashion Designers Give Kanye West the Hand
Kanye West's polarizing ways have apparently hit him where it hurts the fashion-forward rapper the most: In his ability to get into the biggest fashion shows.
Word is several top designers at Paris Fashion Week have turned West away despite his camp's cries to get the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy phenom in. According to the New York Post, West was shut out of fashion shows for Alexander McQueen, Balmain and Louis Vuitton. Balmain directly addressed the situation when asked for a quote by the Post, saying: ""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."
The same rep, who also works for McQueen, says that for that client's show Kanye "did not make a request to attend, but he came uninvited."
It's not every designer giving West the boot though, as he has already successfully attended shows by Givenchy, Valentino and Vivienne Westwood.
You can't blame Kanye. He's addicted to the bright lights ...
