Kanye West may have killed it with the Paris Fashion week when he sent out surprise invitations on Saturday to his showing of Yeezy Season 8, but at Monday’s presentation for the artist’s label, his daughter North stole the show.
Held at the Espace Niemeyer at 9:30 p.m., guests stood on a slippery, grassy hill outside of the venue. Some were wrapped in felt blankets (handed out at the show’s entrance) and awaited the start of the show.
By 9:52 p.m., against a backdrop of silence, models took to the runway wearing a streamlined edit of crop tops, puffer coats and wide-legged pants. Moments later, the urgent, relentless sound of cars honking emerged, and what may have been initially mistaken as traffic sounds coming from the street were, in fact, part of the soundtrack for the show.
But it wasn’t until the end — seven minutes later — that the runway performance took a surprising star-in-the-making turn: As models took their finale walk, West’s 6-year-old daughter, North, appeared on the runway and started rapping — and she was received with enthusiastic applause.
A sunglasses-clad Kanye then emerged, proudly beaming as he closed in on his daughter for a hug.
Kanye blessed his Parisian show with a Sunday Service yesterday, where wife Kim Kardashian West arrived wearing a sexy latex outfit straight off the Balmain runway.
