While we all know that Kayne West is a multi talented star, few realize his penchant for fashion. For those not in the know, take a look at any number of runway shows from the Paris, Milan, and London Fashion weeks, and you’ll most likely see Mr. West at more than several of them.
Kayne not only brings a sense of the hip hop world to the catwalk, with his pinosh style and over the top exhiberant personality as a formidable performer, he also brings with it his ego. Yes, his ego. In fact, his is so large, he should have a runway seat reserved for it: right in between him and Anna Wintour.
Granted, he has good reason to be ego-centric. He sells more albums than Wendy Williams dishes gossip. Nevertheless, there comes a point when one asks: is it for real or is it for show?
Fashion icon or not, I am starting to believe that the world that Kayne seeks to join is not of fashion. No it’s of “Kayne” and just Kayne. And Kayne now wants you to be like “Kayne”.
Because of course, as if his launching his own line of shoes chez Louis Vuitton wasn’t enough now he wants you to become him. Don’t believe me? See his latest NYC subway ad and decide for yourself.
