For a guy whose legal name is two letters, Kanye West sure does get a lot of people to write a lot of words. It's hard not to: Ye's YEEZY SEASON 9 fashion show was easily the biggest moment of Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2023.
Fashion Month SS23 was packed with events that could've easily taken the viral cake. From Coperni's Bella Hadid dressstunt to the tumbling models at AVAVAV, it's hard to pick exactly what broke the internet the hardest.
Or, at least it was until the afternoon of October 3, when Kanye and Hood By Air founder Shayne Oliver broke the internetwith YEEZY SEASON 9 (or YZY SZN 9, as they like to say).
Ye and Oliver didn't come to play, with a massively hyped surprise show that was arguably even more outrageous than the Balenciaga show from the day prior, which Kanye himself starred in, wearing a massive cargo-pocketed jacket.
Anyways, with YEEZY SEASON 9 alone, there's a lot to unpack. So, let's break down the biggest moments from Kanye's YZY SZN show in descending order from craziest to, well, somewhat less crazy.
This is the moment that elevated YEEZY SEASON 9 from oddity to pure spectacle. After making the audience wait nearly half-an-hour — reportedly for a few celebrities to arrive — Kanye stepped out to deliver a long-winded rant.
However, I can't imagine anyone was paying much attention once they saw the giant "WHITE LIVES MATTER" printed on the back of his black T-shirt.
