Kanye West 'awkward' on fashion show

Kanye West has made a surprising and "awkward" appearance on fashion show House of Style.

The rapper bumped into the revamped MTV show's model hosts Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls while shopping in Paris but didn't appear happy to be filmed.

A fashion designer himself, Kanye approached the presenters for a chat in designer boutique Colette, but the video footage hints at the super star's refusal to have the conversation caught on camera.

"Kanye stops to chat with the models, but we're guessing he didn't want to be in the segment, because the camera awkwardly cuts away, and then films the whole thing at a distance - and out of earshot," Fashionista writes.

Still, presenters Karlie and Joan didn't seem to notice any discomfort and seemed delighted with their celebrity run-in.

They described the musician's involuntary cameo as fun and revealed they talked about Kanye's own designs.

"He really lives for it," Joan commented.

House of Style is a successful MTV production from the 90s, which focuses on the lives of models, designers and the fashion industry.

Originally hosted by supermodels including Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell, the pop culture channel decided to produce a new series of the cult show to reflect the current style obsession with all things 80's and 90's.
