Kanye West may have skipped out on the traditional end-of-show designer strut down the runway, but Kim Kardashian West and her purple sweatpants were live and in color in the front row at the Yeezy New York Fashion Week presentation on Wednesday — and she owned the look.
Rocking aubergine sweats, a sheer oxblood top, and a pair of lace-up Yeezy booties, Kardashian West turned stay-at-home style into high fashion. Her outfit was also the perfect complement to the looks gracing the runway: streetwear-chic, and in a dark color palette.
The show was modest and breezy compared to years past; no models fainted on the runway from heat exhaustion or dehydration (like at last season’s show), and the presentation started only 25 minutes late, instead of the usual hour or more.
Kardashian West, for her part, was ever the supportive wife, Snapchatting from the front row (despite a total ban on cell phone use and social media — talk about spousal privilege!) and congratulating her love on Twitter.
By her side was sister Kylie Jenner, the only other member of the Kardashian clan to attend the Season 5 presentation. Kendall Jenner, who has been front row at many past Yeezy shows, had to sit this one out because she was walking the runway for Anna Sui. The rest of the famous family, though, was MIA.
Kendall and her BFF, Bella Hadid, did stop by after the runway show to deliver snacks from McDonald’s to Kim K.
How’s that for real love and support?
