Talk about embarrassing!
Kanye West was turned away from multiple runway shows at Paris fashion week, after the controversial rapper turned up uninvited and/or unexpected. But in his defense, Kanye probably doesn't have to RSVP very often.
West was admitted to Valentino, Givenchy and Vivienne Westwood couture shows, but he was banned from Alexander McQueen, Balmain and Louis Vuitton.
We're especially shocked he wasn't admitted to Vuitton, considering he designed a shoe line in collaboration with Vuitton designer Marc Jacobs in 2009. An LV rep would only say: "Kanye remains a great friend of the house."
Unfortunately, West doesn't seem to be a friend of the Balmain fashion house. A rep for show organizer KCD told Page Six:
- "Mr. West requested to attend [Balmain] 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."
On Tuesday, West tried to get into the McQueen show, but event organizers spilled to Page Six: "He did not make a request to attend, but he came uninvited." West reportedly still crashed the show, through a side entrance designated for venue management.
We don't get why fashion conscious West was turned away from these major shows. Despite all the controversy surrounding the guy, he's still got some serious cash to spend!
So far no comment, or Tweet, from West.
