Kanye West Hits NYFW

Kanye West has been singlehandedly making up for the lack of star wattage this season by making surprise appearances at very unexpected shows. First, I spotted him yesterday morning at Preen (an always-excellent show, but not one I would expect to see a rapper at–I wouldn’t be as shocked had I seen him at, say, Marc Jacobs or…Miss Sixty??). Then, he turned up later that same day at the Band of Outsiders presentation and proceeded to jump into the show, posing and posturing with the models. It was the highlight of my afternoon, for sure, Lionel-Richie-style mullet and all. xo
