Paris, France (CNS) – Kanye West may love fashion, but fashion isn’t exactly enamored of him. The rap superstar was reportedly turned away by some designers at the Paris Fashion Week after turning up uninvited.
Kanye was able to attend high fashion labels Valentino, Givenchy, and Vivienne Westwood this week, but he was not invited to Alexander McQueen, Balmain, and Louis Vuitton, according to Page Six. But the outspoken artist tried to defy organizers and appeared with his entourage at the show.
Last Thursday, he tried to get into the Le Grand Hoel to see the Balmain runway show, but he was denied entry so he snuck off to another part of the hotel. He also tried to get into the McQueen show on Tuesday, showing up without warning.
Balmain and McQueen show organizer KCD told 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.
Apparently some organizers are tired of uninvited celebrities showing up to fashion events and expecting VIP treatment.
A KCD rep further explained, “Kanye has been a welcome guest at several events that KCD has managed over the years. Several designers chose to have smaller shows this season and therefore chose to not invite celebs in order to accommodate press and buyers.”
