Kanye West makes surprise modeling debut at Paris Fashion Week

The rapper and Yeezy designer, aged 45, opened Balenciaga’s SS23 show by walking down a muddy catwalk.

Demna, the creative director of the luxury fashion brand explained that the mud was "a metaphor for digging to truth and being down-to-earth." 

The Georgian fashion designer said: "Individualism in fashion has been downgraded to pseudo trend dictated by a post about some celebrity... 

fashion in its best case scenario shouldn't need a story to sell to someone... let's let everyone be anybody."

The 'Good Morning" singer wore an oversize jacket, leather trousers, a baseball hat, and a hoodie.

Kanye's ex-sister-in-law Kylie Jenner was among those in attendance. Kanye and Kim Kardashian arrived at the event with their father.

Kanye models for Balenciaga, following in the footsteps Kim, 41-year-old founder of SKIMS.

The reality star was wrapped in yellow and black tape with the Balenciaga name earlier this year.

Ye accused Gap, however, of "copying" his work.
