Kanye West made his first front-row appearance of the season at Anthony Vaccarello's show in Paris yesterday.
The singer made his first appearance of the season at the designer's fashion show, where he was seen chatting with French fashion magazine bigwigs.
The hip-hop star was in attendance to support his colleague Anthony, who helped Kanye design his last clothing collection.
Kanye looked on in appreciation as models Catherine McNeil, Isabeli Fontana and Karmen Pedaru strode down the catwalk in the designer’s signature body-con dresses.
After the show Kanye headed backstage to congratulate Anthony on the collection.
Highlights from the show included graphic black double crepe dresses which were slashed down the side with silver eyelet embroidery detailing.
The night before his front-row appearance, Kanye performed at Parisian night spot Le Zénith.
During the show Kanye reportedly referenced fashion in the form of a crystal Margiela mask that covered his face.
As reported on Style.com, the trend-setting rapper also designed the entire evening as if it were a fashion collection or show.
Kanye has recently decided to turn his focus back to music.
In September last year it was announced that he would not be showing his own design collection at Paris Fashion Week this season.
This followed his first two showcases receiving lukewarm reviews in the French capital.
The US superstar has recently appeared on the cover of French fashion magazine L’Officiel Hommes.
In the cover image he appears in a close embrace with his pregnant girlfriend reality star Kim Kardashian.
