Kanye West was in Paris for Fashion Week and found himself left out in the cold at many of the fashion shows held in the city throughout the week.
From The New York Post:
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.”
Though Kanye was initially shut out of the Alexander McQueen fashion show, West was eventually let in through a side door.
