West‘s second runway show is set to take place tonight in Paris. The anticipation is killing us and apparently the shoes are killing Kanye’s models, like Jourdan Dunn. As the blog Glamazons pointed out, the British beauty took to Twitter over the weekend–presumably while at a fitting for tonight’s show–to sound off on the footwear.
First she wrote, “The shoes are crazy high! So my legs look crazy right now!” Followed by “Don’t get me wrong the shoes are sexy as fuck but you can’t walk in them!” And then, “Or maybe its not the shoes……..its me………. *shurgs*” Don’t let Kanye’s impractical shoes get you down, Jourdan!
She then retweeted model Leomie Anderson, who suggested she was not the only model having issues with Kanye and his shoes: “@LeLeValentine: @missjourdandunn omg the model who fit for his clothes said the shoes were so bad and he was cussin her.” Sounds like a nightmare if it’s true. Hopefully he paid her.
We’re actually geniuinely sympathetic–as we’ve learned, shoes do take a toll on models’ feet, especially by the second to last day of Paris Fashion Week, at which point models have been walking in ill-fitting six inch heels for nearly a month.
Hopefully, the fact that Kanye’s doing fittings at all is a good sign. Last season, there were rumors that he called models up to walk in the show with almost no notice and the poor fit was one of the most criticized aspects of the collection. We hope, for Kanye’s sake, that no one trips or falls and that the rest of the collection isn’t as impractical as the shoes seem to be. Still, if they’re really “sexy as fuck,” we can’t wait to see them.
