The latest installments of MTV’s House of Style reboot are here, and they’ve got a Very Special Guest Appearance: Kanye West–sans Kim Kardashian.
Hosting duo Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls hit up Parisian boutique Colette to shop for each other (we know, adorable!), and while Karlie tries on a
YSL Saint Laurent jacket, who should walk by but Yeezy himself. 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. Which is a major bummer since later Joan says, “It’s fun running into Kanye shopping, and talking about fashion and his line. He really lives for it.” Damnit, why couldn’t we have heard this undoubtedly enlightening conversation!?
Perhaps Kanye was in a hurry because Kim was waiting for him in a car outside while he picked up a few more editor-inspired pieces for her. Or maybe we just made that story up for our enjoyment–your call.
Watch the full episode below, plus check out House of Style‘s second installment, in which Karlie and Joan get a behind-the-scenes look at how cinemagraphs are made–complete with Gucci dresses and shots of the Eiffel Tower. (PS: When can we make our episode of House of Style happen, guys?!)
