Kanye West UpdatesThis Wednesday, the Balenciaga Haute Couture Show 2021 was held. Kanye West wore a wild face mask that covered his entire face.
The 44-year old rapper sat in the front row wearing a full-coverage mask. The distinctive cat print on the face mask was evident. The rapper was not the first to wear a full-face mask.
As a rapper, the ski-mask style covers have been a staple of his wardrobe. He has been seen in Los Angeles wearing one with a religious theme.
West was seen wearing a black ensemble with track pants and hoodies, along with some gold jewelry. As he was seen wearing a jacket, which was the first piece in his Yeezy Gap collection, West teased the launch. West is always up for representing Yeezy. He wore a pair of Yeezy Foam Runners from his label.
Kanye West at Balenciaga
After 53 years, Balenciaga returned to Haute Couture’s runway. This was the debut Balenciaga Couture collection by Demna Gvasalia, creative director.
West has previously collaborated with the Georgian fashion designer for his Yeezy Season 1 collection. West has been a strong supporter of his work and is often seen in Vetements sweats by Gvasalia.
Star-studded was the show. James Harden, Lewis Hamilton and Lil Baby all made an appearance. The ramp was walked by Ella Emhoff (a budding model who is also Kamala Harris’ step-daughter). Anna Wintour, Edward Enninful, and other fashion icons were also present.
Bella Hadid was also present at the Balenciaga Couture Show, one day after her appearance at the Cannes Film Festival’s opening.
Irina Shayk, West’s girlfriend, was not present at the show. The Russian model, who was seen in the Yeezy x Balenciaga DMX tribute tee back in April, might be just waiting for her boyfriend to create another Balenciaga collaboration.
