Rapper stars in new Balmain campaign
Kanye West has taken to modelling after starring in a campaign for French fashion house Balmain.
It’s the second time West has appeared in a campaign for the fashion house, after appearing in their Spring 2015 campaign.
In this latest outing, West appears alongside model Joan Smalls, wearing an outfit much like the Balmain-designed ensemble he wore to the 2016 Met Gala.
Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing shared an image of the campaign, citing it as “music meets fashion.” Pascal Dangin, who creative directed this specific campaign, said it is “music fashion fusion.”
Kim Kardashian recently posted a Snapchat of herself rapping the lyrics to her husband Kanye West’s ‘Famous’, the lyrics to which led to a feud with Taylor Swift.
Swift had previously claimed to have not known about the song’s lyrics prior to its release. West’s track includes the lines: “I feel like me and Taylor Swift might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous.”
However, Kardashian leaked a phone call earlier this month showing Swift seemingly enthusing over the first line, while not being informed about the latter.
Following the fall-out from the phone call leak, Kardashian posted a video to Snapchat of herself and reality show producer Carla DiBello rapping along to the controversial ‘Famous’ lyrics.
